Default Shimmy Shimmy!

Help. I've got this shimmy, stutter, hesitation, always between 40-55 mph. I've got a base pt 2005. It doesn't really do it any other time. Just normal driving at 40-55mph.

Anyone know why? Do I need a tune up? New wires?[:I]

Not much to go on. Shimmy is usually wheels/tires, stutter & hesitation is engine-related.
Since you have an '05, why not have dealer fix it? DO NOT buy "they all do that".
