Wobbles when driving, feels like a flat tire but its not. Had tires rotated but didn't fix the problem. Also squeaking noise from underneath when hitting bumps in the road. Don't know if this is related to wobbling or not. Suspension problem maybe?

could be from worn tie rod ends, suspension ball joints , worn suspension rubbers and failing shock absorbers
take it to an accredited suspension service center for a complete check including the rear end as the front floating sensation could be from a problem rear end suspension set up and shock absorbers
I am well aware that every tire shop says rotate tires but in reality you just move a problem tire from one corner to the other, fail to see a wear problem develop in the tires ( indicates alignment or tire case problem) and costs 4 tires at a time instead of 2 which is not really economical as well
consider this front drive cars wear out front tires at the rate of 3 to rear tires 1 and I think you get the picture (rear drive cars rear tires 2 to front 1) or if there is a case problem with a tire it is lost in the rotation process and becomes dangerous on the road
front end issues ..out of round tires , out of balance, drive shafts going bad, put up on a lift where the wheels dangle in mid air(like a tire shop) and check under the front end for anything loose or broken..
It wobbles? like when your driving it vibrates and stuff. If so its not your tire. It could be anything. Loose lug nuts. Bad Hub assembly. Suspension. Brakes. or if it really is the tire. it might be out of round. or need to be rotated to the back of the vehicle
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.

you either have a pulled belt in the tire or theres a separation in the tread belt and you need to have this checked soon as this tire could blow out at highway speed,if the noise is as bad as you say it is,jack up the van block the wheels and hand spin the tire and check and watch if it wobbles,has any flat spots,bulges wiggly tread in the tread face,just anything out of the ordinary
