    More than likely the tie rod is bent. Upon wheel damage to blunt force will affect the tie rod as well

I have the exact same problem with my 2001 Sonata. I got it checked out. Alignment and tie rod is the answer i get from everyone thats looked at it.Something about replacing the front bar that connects the wheels? 160$ problem at cheap. 45 miles an hour it would wobble. Dont forget to check behind the tires for loose bolts... My back Tire would wobble the car horribly. a bolt from behind the tire came loose. My sonata runs great. My wheels don't!

Left front wheel on 1992 Lexus LS400 wobbles from time to time. Stop car and then drive on and no more wobble until next time.

Could be a bad tire. The cords could be separating.
Check for bad front bearings as well.
Also check for shot steering things such as rack and pinion.

Can an automatic trans cause a wobble under acceleration. Mount is good. No movement in steering wheel

I suppose it is possible - almost anything is possible with motor cars. Like the old saying goes; anything with tyres or testes is going to cause trouble sooner or later, however, I have never known the symptom you describe to be caused by a transmission.

I have known an unfortunate choice of tyres to cause some strange sensations. Some of the early Michelin tyres used to wobble a lot under acceleration. I have known some older tyres to sometimes feel like the wheels are walking along the road rather than rotating but that was at a fairly low speed and neutral throttle opening.

Worn driveline components are by far the most common causes of a less than smooth power delivery with worn inner drive shaft joints the top of my list for strange or unusual wobble sensations.

It is wise to go back to basics and do some serious checking before spending any money...

Why is there wobble and a humming noise at certain speeds?

Usually a humming noise ( will get louder the faster you go ) is associated with a worn/bad wheel bearing. If the bearing is worn bad enough, it can also produce a wobble. Have the bearings checked on the side/wheel the problem is coming from

Will driveaxels cause a wobble in the front end?

it is possible that a bent shaft or failed cv joints will cause the problem
it depends if the wobble starts at a certain speed and gets worse up to a speed then stops or just gets to the point where steering control is lost
because the bearings have been replace along with tie rod ends I am tempted to consider that the axles are not the problem ( unless the repairs stated were done to fix the wobble ) but the the wheel bearing adjustment is not correct and that the fittment of the tie rod ends has altered the wheel alignment
consider a wheel alignment to correct a castor fault ( wheel wobble) and recheck the correct adjustment of the wheel bearings
if the cv joints are worn , dry ,they can be binding up and not altering angular movement easily which may appear as a wheel wobble

Why would my 91 4wd explorer wobble when it goes down the road?

Well you could have a bent rim, a knot on the tire, the wheel could be loose. Also you might want to check the wheel bearings.

Wheel shake and brake judder

what speeds are you obtaining and braking

I would think that you tires are out of balanced whether it be dabre in the rim or an improper balancing job
some cars can be fine up to 40 but when you step up the speed more the more the tires become unbalanced. making the servere shakes.
