Default Car shakes when i hit 60mph. Help!!

Hey guys,
I own a 1998 Mirage De. it currently has 201000 miles. I know that is alot of miles =-D. When im driving and it hits 60mph the car starts to shake pretty bad. When i get to 65mph its gone. I can drive on the free way at 85mph and no shaking. It only happens from 60 -65 mphs. Any one have a issue like this? It has fairly new tires. only had them on for about 6000 miles. Engine works good so far. I changed the struts on the car about 10000 miles ago. Any one has any clue what could be causing it? Any help would be great.
thx

Try rotating the tires from front tothe back, if it goes away its the tires if not then its something in the front end.

Im going to do that this weekend. I have a feeling its something really stupid. Anything else that could cause the shaking if its not the tires?

My 95 does the same thing. Just had about $300 in front end work done to my car. i am betting that something is out of alignment or maybe something could be loose up front. Get the steering and suspension checked, get an alignment done, and replace the tires.

Just replaced the tires on my Summit. Took care of the vibration problem. Tires were cupped badly.
