Is it vibration? If it is have a look at the brake discs, it's either surface rust or more likely to be warped.

Sounds like a warped brake rotor. Replacement is the solution. That and don't brake so hard that the rotors overheat.

You probly need brakes. The rotors sound warped.

Could be a wheel bearing , tie rod end , upper or lower ball joint ,or busted control arm bushings

It could be loads of things, if your wheel is on tight check your wheel bearing, recently i had a new cv joint put on wheel, get it up on the ramps

I would try replacing the wheel bearing.

I have to agree that it could be any of the following: wheel bearing, tie rod ends (http://www.drivewire.com/part/steering-tie-rod/tie-rod-end/), control arm bushings, or even upper or lower ball joints. Based on my experience, it would be essential to primarily inspect tie rod ends before any other part. Hope this is useful advice.

what he said but not sure about the wheel bearing it would do it all the time not just when braking

There can be allot of reasons to have a wheel wobble. If its the rotors it will only happen when braking. If its a wheel bearing it will happen all the time. If the wheel is out of balance it will get worse as you go faster. Hope this helps.
