Could be a lot of things. Ball joints, tie rid ends, bearings, suspension, out of balance wheels, etc. I would recommend taking it to a mechanic as soon as you can.

Jack the front end up and see if you've got any play in the wheels. With your hands on the tire
positioned at 3 & 9 o'clock. Try to move the wheel from right to left. Then, positions your hands at 12 & 6 o'clock and try to move the wheel up and down. If the wheel has play left to right, you have a bad tie rod end. If you have play left to right and up and down, you've got a bad wheel bearing. If you only have play up and down, then you've got a bad ball joint.

If you've got no play. Take it to a tire shop and get you wheels balanced. And if you still feel the shanking in the wheel and pedal, then you have an unbalanced brake rotor and I'd recommend you replace the brake pads and rotors.

It's most likely a tire issue, either balance or a tire separation. If you feel it all the time no matter what speed you probably have a separated tire. Feel both your front tires for a bulge or bubble in the tread.
If it happens at around 55 60 MPH and smooths out as you speed up then it's your balance.
Hope this helps.

Watch those potholes bro! That's a big part of what causes impact braking and bubbles on the sidewall. Go for the BFG sport comp 2's or something. Yokohama nexen, sumitomos, kumho are all junk

Go Bridgestone, best performance and tread life. If you got the money go with the RE970 AS, great performance and it's the only ultra high performance tire with a 40K warranty. If you want summer tires the RE760 is solid and a lot less money. Sorry for sounding like a commercial.
Aloha!
