What caused the violent wobble in my front tire?
Jack it up and make sure all of the lug nuts are there and tight, after it is lifted up push and pull on the tire and see if it clunks around if it does either the bearings are bad or the ball joints are going bad, check the suspension and all linkage you can find it.
I would say you have wheel bearing issues, or a loose wheel.
You can buy the parts from a parts store and have a shop install them, you will have to pay the hourly shop fee, if you decide to they will buy the parts and charge the shop fee.
Most shops charge anywhere from 65 to 90 bucks per hour plus parts!
