Question: are accents having wheel bearing problems?

i just replaced the right front wheel bearing (63,000 miles) the left front needed replacement at 55,000.

Not sure if I have your same problem, but since the very beginning my rotors warp, making a terrible shimmy when braking. I also get vibration in the steering wheel at higher speeds (over 65mph). I've had the front rotors resurfaced 4 times. When I have this done it gets better for awhile, but then they warp again. I just had it back to the dealer at 59,000k miles (right before the warranty is up) and they can't find anything wrong with it. They say the wheel bearings like fine, but something has to be wrong to keep causing the rotors to warp.
