Okay, try this:

Does it also happen when you engine brake (meaning you dont even touch the brake pedal)?

If it only happens with your brakes, sounds like rotors. If it happens all the time, then you may have a thrust arm bushing going out.

I've had wobbling but it went away once i got new rotors. Car would wobble only when I used the brakes, though.

How many miles on your car? I had a wobble like that and I had to change the thrust bushings and that took care of it.

When I first bought the car I had a shake that happened at all speeds... ended up all 4 of the rims were bent (not by me and a fairly long story...).

need more details mate.... is it a wobble through the steering, and only on braking gently, or though the pedal, or the whole car.....

if under gentle braking, and discs are not warped, could be residue on the discs...

Had a similar problem when I got my car. Turned out to be the front tyres. They looked fine to the naked eye, but they were out of round. New tyres solved the problem.

If you tracked the car, you may have some brake pad residue on the rotors?
