alignment problem

I just got my car aligned today, but it came out the same way it went in, the back wheel still shakes going at high speeds.

I went back to the shop, but they said it my wheel, it's a bad wheel.

and they claim that all the alignment is to factory specs

Did you try getting the wheel re-balanced?

sounds like it could also be a belt shift in the tire, or a sticky rear calipar.

It could also be a stone jammed in the tread, tire pressure. So you have another set of wheels to try on? If so, do that and see how it is.

My alignment is done, but it still pulls just a tint bit. I am thinking tire pressure plus uneven wear. But nothing like yours.

Is your car shaking when u are driving sometimes? Then u balance the tires. If your car pulls to 1 side try changing the tires around left to right and right to left. Front only. Unless it is directional tires then u go back to front. It is common when u have new tires on or when u put on old tires from someone and they didn't mark which tires go where. It could also be your caliper seizing up, but i doubt it. Try checking that first. I guarantee that;s your problem.
