Default Shaking at higher mph

got a 94 ranger and the engine has about 88 thousand miles on it , ive noticed when i drive faster like around 60 mph or higher the whole truck starts to shake and it seems like its mostley coming from the front

I didnt know if this was normal with a 94 or not right at all , never had a vehicle with this problem but ive never had a ranger before , i know my tires are getting bad and so i need to replace all 4 of them , but does anyone else that owns a older ranger have similiar problems , i even see the hood shaking alot when i go faster

I just didnt know what to check to see what else it could be other then the tires going bad

Well i checked the tread on my right front and its almost completely bald , so until i get new tires , im gonna rotate one of the better tires from the back into the front

Any other thing to check for the cause of the whole vehicle to shake

The wheels could need a balancing. Could have shot bearings or steering linkage. Uneven or excessive wear on the tires. The list goes on.
