The description sounds like warped rotors really.
Typically, you'll see more shake and wobble by a light tap to the brakes.
Going full force on the brakes will actually stabilize the wobble, but
obviously, you can't stand on the brakes every time you want to touch 'em.
New rotors would be good. I'm not saying it can't be a torn belt or even a
bent rim, but it really does sound like a rotor problem at this point. (But
of course, w/o having driven it myself.......)
