Jack up the side that the wheel is wobbling. Grab the sides of the wheel ans move the wheel from side to side. Have someone look at the tie rod and the any suspension that attaches to the knuckle. Then grab the tire at top and bottom and do the same thing. See if the wheel has any movement. If it does, you have bad bearings. If it wobbled from side to side with move ment in the tie rod, you have a worn out tie rod. Now grab a large channel lock and place it on the top of the ball joint and the 'A' frame and squeeze. if there is alot of movement, the joint is bad. My guess in that you have bad bearings if the wheel wobbles or the center nut is loose.
