    Hello friends,

    I have a 2010 cummins isx kenworth t800. Recently I noticed that most of the time when I go over 80km/50miles an hour it starts shaking/vibrating.

    any suggestions on what might be going on?

    Likely time for new steer tires, will be like new after. Did that to me, came out of nowhere, same speed range as you, tread looked good but when I finally took it too the tire shop they could see the cupping right away.

    One or both sides of either or both tires look like a roller coaster?

    That's usually the cause that happens at that speed.

    I get it every time my steers get to that point.

    Maybe time to replace, steer tires, shocks, bad front wheel bearing, drag link, alignment, wheel out of balance. Not to worry though, it will only cost you a few thousand to figure it out. When doing the process of elimination, it's generally the last thing that you have checked.
