    For the age of the car it could be a few things. One might be a bad wheel bearing. Alignment is out causing vibration. Rotors are worn. Tires are out of balance. Or misc. up front moving parts. Rack & pinion, bad struts. It doesn't sound good from the way you described the wobbling of the wheel. If you can't do any of the above yourself, then play it safe and bring it to an ASE Certified Mechanic for a look see. Don't push it off to long. Your wheel could possiably come off while driving. Be safe with this.
