    It's seem doubtful that bad engine mounts could transmit vibration only to one side of a car--but a bad wheel or tire or axle joint could.

    Vibrations can be tricky to track down. One quick test might be to just temporarily switch tires in the front from one side to the other, and see if the vibration changes intensity or area.

    Generally a bad or imbalanced front tire or wheel would be felt in the steering wheel (as would a bad CV joint) whereas a bad one in the rear would be felt more in the seat of your pants.
