Loose wheel nuts. Check tightness of wheel nuts or if you are not mechanically inclined go to a tyre store and get them to check if you have missing wheel nuts or loose wheel nuts. Preferrably before the wheel comes off later on while you are driving down the road. (Happened 30 years ago to my father)
other possible things to consider
badly worn tyre
under inflated tyres
faulty shock absorbers.
bent tyre rim

SOURCE: The tires wobble back and forth.

either the tires or tire has a broken internal cord or the wheel is bent. Any tire shop can verify this for free in most cases.

SOURCE: my front right tire wobbles on my 2000 chevy cavalier but my tire is new

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

SOURCE: Death Wobble

This is most likely an alignment issue. When you go to replace your tires, ask them to also do a total alignment and it should get rid of the problem.

What can cause my back right tire wobble on my 2002 dodge caravan

I hope we can get this solved before you have an accident!
The very most common cause is a "belt" that has slipped or come apart inside your tire. If so, it may blow out any minute.
Check it one of two ways. 1) jack up that end of the van and spin the tire by hand, and see if you can see the "bubble" on the tire. 2) Drive slowly (about 5 or 10 miles an hour) and have someone in another vehicle drive along side you and look at your tire.. They should see the tire wobbling.
Also, though it is not too likely, check the wheel (Not the tire) and see if it is bent or loose or whatever. You can do that the same two ways. Be blessed..

Right front side wobbling real bad. someone said something about some kind of "arms" connected to the tires. what are they called?

Lower control arms. There are two bushings that are at the frame, if these are gone then it is possible for it to wobble. I would also check the wheel bearing and ball joint. To check these lift the tire off the ground. For the bearing grab the tire top and bottom push it in and out, if there is any movement the bearing is worn. If these are worn enough they to will cause a wobble. For the lower ball joint have someone put a 2 X 4 under the tire and lift as you watch the ball joint. if it moves up and down in the socket it is bad. All these together can cause a significant wobble. The lower control arm mounts to the frame and the lower ball joint is mounted to the lower control arm at the tire and the bearing is the part that holds the tire on.

I have a 91 front wheel drive toyota corolla & I was going down the road and it cut off then fired right back up but was shaking i changed the right side axle but it still does the same. at 30 mph it...

Tires out of balance? Start with the simple things before changing stuff like axle shafts. Take the car to a tire shop and make sure the tires are balanced and the rims aren't bent, as either one of these can cause a rough ride

Wobble while driving. After inspecting saw that the right front boot on the axle was weather cracked, assuming no more grease inside, what parts do I need to replace?

A CV boot will generally not cause a wobble. If the boot is not cracked open there is plenty of grease inside. If the boot was leaking grease you would see it slung all over the back side of the knuckle, brake caliper, and inside of the wheel.

If the steering wheel is moving back and forth at slow speeds the first thing I would check for is a separated tire or a bent wheel. If you feel the tread of the tire it should feel smooth all the way around. If there is a high spot or bump it is separated.

The easiest thing to do is have the tires balanced. Tell them you are getting a wobble in the steering wheel. They will inspect the front tires closely and if they find an issue have them show you what they found.

96 saturn right rear tie rod bent bad

i would have the shock/spring checked out as I'm sure that's whacked. and potentially the wheel bearing causing the wobble. the rim / tire may also have damage causing a wobble. the wobble could also be caused by a simple wheel balance weight having been knocked off from the accident...have the tire balanced at a shop....2nd jack up the side. swap the front wheel and put it in the rear and spin it...this will tell you if there is more structural damage to the rear suspension. being the above listed. As far as the ball joints, usually they will be fine or snap.

Steering wheel wobble between 5-30 mph. and again at over 50mph

possibly bad brake hose or twisted/kinked causing pull. wobble may be bad/worn axle shaft on right side.some right axles are 2 or3 piece design.carrier support bolts maybe missing but more likely joint is worn. look for boots that have split or cracked&leaked grease.

yes make sure your lug nuts are all tight and the wheels are seated properly on the hubs, if they are tight bring the car to a tire shop and have them balance the two front tires, this will tell you if you have a bent wheel please rate -jeff
