still wobbles even after getting all new tires. really wobbles from side to side as I slowly pick up speed. Wobble resembles having one flat front tire. please advise.

    Not a tire issue. It is a suspension or steering issue. Could be ball joints, shattered wheel bearing, tie rod, or bent half-shaft. Need to have inspection to find out which.

    Agree with cusbak30. Inner axle tripod can cause this when accelerating. Motor/trans. mount also.

    Does the steering wheel wobble and is it ONLY when stepping on gas? That will help rule out some stuff also.
