Steering wheel shaking

1998 Accord EX 5-speed sedan...I have new tires, alignment check was good, and just had front brakes and rotors replaced. When I drive on the interstate and quickly depress and release the brake pedal, my steering wheel begins to shake. Once I get off the interstate and make a complete stop and then jump back on the interstate, it doesnít shake anymore until I quickly depress and release the pedal again. Could this be the caliper piston(s) are sticking or have something to do with the brake master cylinder?

Thanks!

Re: Steering wheel shaking

So it doesn't shake when you are braking only when you let off the brakes?

Correct. It doesnít seem to do it when I gradually depress and release the pedal, only after Iíve quickly depressed and release the pedal when Iím cruising at higher speeds.
