Death Wobble when alone?

Ive been getting the Death Wobble at about 55-60 when im by myself driving. Sometimes it shakes a little and sometimes its completly fine. If someone else is with me it will not do it, it just shakes a tiny bit. Anyone have a clue on what it could be. Anything i could look for? Thanks

This stickie should help you.

DW seems to have many causes, but if it comes and goes with just a 100 - 200LB difference in the front seat, my guess is it may just be tires being worn, loss of a weight, or uneven wear, like mine was. check the stickie. It gives lots of great possiblities and how many people got rid of DW.

My front tires are low on tread but they are still legal.

It's a well-known fact that the mysterious DW demon prefers to rear its ugly head when you're alone.
