Whenever the car gets to about 65 and above, the car starts shaking. Not violent enough to stop driving but it is very noticeable. I jacked up the front and tried to wiggle the wheel and it wouldnt budge on both sides. So I'm guessing it might be a bent rim? Any other suggestions out there?

Unbalanced wheel is more probable.

try and go faster than 65mph and see if it goes away. it it doesnt go away then its possible it is a bent rim, but it should also happen on speeds lower than 65 too.

or else do an alignment, and wheel balancing.
