I second the cv shafts-I have had two cars with similar symptons your 
describing-but usually at 35-40 mph not 55. Shaking car-steering wheel going 
side to side-one car it was the inners joints had dried up and needed 
repacking, the other car the outer joing was sticking "out of round" meaning 
something was broken inside and jamming it so it was not straight anymore.
Usually a bad tire/wheel combo is evident when balancing-it won't balance 
easily, it wobbles, etc.
