Weird rattling while accelerating at around 1200-1500 rpms.

Okay so I just changed my oil and all four tires less than a week ago and I'm driving to work this morning and I notice when I'm in a gear at around 1200 to 1500 rpms there is a rattling sound from the passanger side of the car. I didn't hear it after I changed the oil and tires so I'm not sure if they are related. It is a manual with 80k on the engine and granny 2000 mustang

recheck your lug nuts first that would be a safest thing

Alright, additional information there is a cold air intake that is mounted in the quarter panel. I have side skirts on it.

I cranked the lugs down last week and I didn't use any of the stick on weights. I was getting rid of some 20's and putting stock mach 1 rims back on.

good tires/ shocks could hide small amounts of shake that the rest of your car can feel....

Yeah, I mean I can't feel anything at any speed and the only time I hear the rattling is at low rpms especially in fourth gear. I think it's the load on the tranny causing the tranny to shake and that is shaking whatever was loose, a friend said to have my (cv axle) checked

I can't tell 100% I can't get out and listen but it sounds like it's coming from somewhere from front right qp to passanger door
