Default steering wheel vibration

my steering wheel will vibrate during medium braking but if i release the pedal and reapply the brakes, there is no vibration. the tires have been replaced and balanced. the front end has been aligned. it sounds like a rotor problem but why would it not not vibrate anytime the brakes are applied? thanks greg

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Replace the pads and rotors. Make sure the pin holes are cleared of rust, and new rubber bellows are installed and new pins. Also make sure, the hubs are free of rust. Clean them well BEFORE you install new rotors. I put a film of either never seize or high temp brake grease on the hub and or rotor to prevent corrosion build up. If you have aluminum wheels do the same on the back of the wheels. Clean off corrosion and put a coating of high temp grease or never seize on them where they meet the hubs.
