Generally, low-speed wobbles are caused by defective tires.
Look at your tires' tread and run your hand over each tire. If you can see (or feel) the tread shift away from the normal pattern, it's likely the tire has a broken belt (most tires have a steel radial belt the wraps around the tire, which is buried underneath the tread) - occasionally they can separate from the tire, causing a terrible wobble-ley feeling. (Ever seen those strips of tread on the highway? that is the result of not having the problem fixed when first noticed).
It could also be other problems such as a loose front-end, the tire being out-of-balance, or your car wheels not being aligned properly.
If you're not comfortable checking yourself, I suggest having a mechanic or automotive technician take a look.

SOURCE: 1993pontiac grand am front wheels wobble while driving

Jack up the front wheels and rotate them by hand. Look for any runout that may be cause by a bent wheel. Also feel the tread as you rotate the tire. It should be smooth and concentric. If there are any bulges in the tread the tire is seperated. Grab the wheel at the top and bottom and push/pull. You should feel no play. If you do you woman have a bad wheel bearing. In order to check ball joints and tie rods you will need to have the tire off the ground and the jack under the subframe or pinch weld. This will not work if the jack is under the control arm. Grab the tire at the 9 and 3 o'clock positions and push pull. If you feel any play you either hav E worn ball joints or worn tie rod ends. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

SOURCE: Car tires wobble at low speeds

Rim may have a dent or a weel balance weight may have fallen off.

Have the balance checked before your tires develop abnormal wear.

2001 ford focus rear driver side tire wobbles by hand , what could cause it ?


I can not imagine anyone using any vehicle with a wheel
noticeably leaning in or out

You actually, not only drive that way at low speeds, but at
higher speeds -enough said- makes no sense you would risk
your car & your life doing so

Obviously you paid a shop in a sincere effort to resolve some
issues

Here the thing

You can see & feel the wobble by hand,so both you
& any repair shop can see the problem !!

What sort of shop do you use, that gives you a vehicle
back in that condition & why are you here for us to guess
at something, when you should asking the place that took
your money, what's going on, or maybe check with a lawyer

Front Left side wobbly and there is a squeeky noise when driving


Have you checked the tires ?
Sometimes a wobble can be a broken belt inside the tire tread.
Or it could be something loose in the hub.
You could also switch the front and rear tire to see if the wobble moves.

MY PT CRUISER HAS BEGUN TO WOBBLE AT LOW SPEEDS, OKAY AT HIGHER SPEEDS, COULD IT BE THE TIRES? I HAVE 40,000 MILES ON THEM


If your steering wheel rocks back and forth or behind you feels like a woddling duck it is your tires... most likely a seperated belt.
