When braking, the wheels seem to stutter and on road there's a slight wobble feel. It seems worse when I first start car. The problem is clearly in the wheels but I had brake drums replaced and nothing wrong with tires that I can see or test with gauge.

Most likely. Check the brake adjusters to see if they move freely. Correct adjustment is tighten until you can't turn wheel any more then back off a few clicks just enough to allow the wheel to move with a slight drag on it.
I had that on my Acura. It was caused by warped brake rotors.
They may not have replaced the rotors on your brake job.
Brake rotors are usually warped by someone tightening the bolts too tight.Most cars require a torque setting of 80 to 120 ft lbs.
I've seen them torque the bolts to 300 ft lbs. So you have to watch anyone working on the wheels.
Hope this helps.
Jack it up at each wheel, spin the wheel, watch it to see if it is out of round, if there might be a bubble in the tire anywhere, (cords break inside the tire), or if the rim is bent. Use chalk as it spins to locate slight flaws. Compare wheel to tire while spinning. Check to see if the wheel is loose either at the hub, axle or lug nuts. Make sure your A frame or tie rods are not coming loose. Use pry bars to see if everything is tight. If your wobble is only when braking it is probably a un-evenly worn brake rotor. Always chock (block) your wheels and apply emergency brake while jacking up a car. Take your time and be safe. Do not get distracted if you are running a jacked up car. Apply brake before moving shifter back to park to stop spinning wheel.
The wheel wobble could be balance on road wheel,check n/s track rod end for wear this could be why the tyre is wearing.If you change track rod end get it re-tracked and the front wheels balanced...Good-luck...
if you feel the pulsation in brake pedal when stopping. its a warped brake rotor thats causing it. for bad cv joint symtoms--- Unusual noises when making turns. As you are driving on the road and you make a turn at the corner, if you start hearing unusual sounds coming from under the car then this is one of the symptoms of a bad CV joint. These noises will sound like something is clicking beneath the car every time you turn the steering wheel. Evidence of a damaged boot. Steering wheel feels heavier. The steering wheel will start to feel tighter and heavier and you can hardly make simple turns to the left or right. In severe cases you might even feel heavy vibrations like you are driving down a rocky road.
it could be the shocks but due to wheel wobble i would say its more to do with worn bushings on the suspension arms etc.... best way to check is to jack up each front corner of the car at a time and shake the wheel see if it has movement side to side or front to rear if so i would reccomend getting it looked at or replacing the bushings :) hoep this helps
on a clear road try gently applying the E brake, see if that produces the feeling, I would say either a rotor is warped (wobbled from side to side due to heat disatortion) or a drum. It is not easy to see these faults, with a wheel off you need to turn the rotor and look for the wobble, it only takes a wobble of 1/16 or 2mm to make the brake pedal pulse. This is a large safety issue as your brakes will be impaired.
um not sure what you mean by wheel wobbles slightly. can you only feel it when you brake or is it just more when you brake? if you feel it all the time and just more when you brake then i would have you tire balanced. if you just feel a shaking when you brake then you need to have your rotors looked at front and back because either will cause shaking in the front end.
