Thats normal,my Starlet allways does that whenever i break the "Lightbarrier"...around 75 km/s...;)
No, unless it kills the new bearing, then youll know that its the hub or pin thats "off"!
(Assuming that its "new" discs!)

Why is my car shaking if it reaches 100 kph?

Check tyre balance (see a tyre dealer)
also get check wheel alignment, front wheel bearing adjustment and that the tyres haven't got tread separation.
Then if not any of those show a problem, check tie rods and steering rack ends.

My 2000 Bonnieville shakes between 45& 55 mph I have new tires balanced and rotated not the ball joints

Check for a damaged wheel rim- the wheel balancer should have detected this, but may have missed it.
Check for defective tyre- new tyres can have faults -rotate wheel while jacked off ground, look for bulges, lumps or tyre runout when rotated.
Check for looseness of tie rods and steering box etc.
Check wheel bearings are ok.

My van starts to shake very badly when i go over 50 mph

Make sure the wheels are properly balanced and secure. Check all steering components and bushings for excessive play. Make sure steering box is secure on frame. If everything is tight, you can have alignment moved slightly more positive (caster only) and that too should help.
Wheel bearing hubs can also cause shake in certain cases and a binding brake caliper can as well (one wheel will be really hot after driving when compared with others) If shake is in body and not front end (you did not say) check driveshaft joints for play.

Steering Wheel shakes at 60+

IT HAS TO BE BALANCE if it was shocky related or loose wheel bearings it would have been in evidence before the tyre change ---I would recommend you take it to one of the better tyre only establishments and ask them to balance your 2 front wheels both inner and outer please let me know the result, imay learn something------------------------but I doubt it

Shaking steering above 60mph

First we need to know where is the shaking noise coming from?Is your car a 4X4?If noise comes from a driven wheel it can be the differential system or bearing also.Usually the speed you have specified is pointing to wheel alignment problem.Also can advice to go to a different tire shop and check wheel alignment again,also ask the mechanic to check the state of your wheels and tires.One of them may be damaged .

Keeps chewing wheel bearings

I'm not familiar with the style of this rear bearing, there are 3 basic designs that are generally used. The single most important thing to consider when installing any of them is preload torque. Obviously the bearing must be properly lubricated and protected with new seals when installed, but the whole job comes down to how tight that big gland nut is when you finish the job. Because the Festiva is really a Mazda, I would cross check the final installation torque of that nut between different spec sheets and see if some answers can be found there.
