This could be a couple of things to be quite honest with you. I would first check the condition of the tires . Rub your hand flatly over the tread and see if it feels like a series of hills and valleys this is called cupping and can cause severe vibration. I would also recommend checking the wheel bearing for play. The cause could be a warped rotor or two. The first thing to do would be CHECK THE TORQUE ON THE WHEEL LUG NUTS before you move the car another foot. Please for your own safety.

How do you rotate the tires on a 1993 ACURA LEGEND

I believe this is a front wheel drive.Take the front wheel and tires to the rear of the same side.Take the rear tires to the opposite sides on the front.The easiest formula is "flip the non-drive wheels to the other end".This easy to remember formula is OK for front-drive or rear drive vehicles,but on 4WD or AWD cars/trucks,just switch the fronts to the back and backs to the front without flipping sides.You can also rotate the spare in if it's a full size with a matching wheel,but this is a small percentage of vehicles anymore.
