Default The wierdest thing just happened

Okay, so im driving on the highway to go bring a video-rental back to the store. I stop at a red light behind some [email protected]$$ pick-up truck. I look over and a girl in a malibu next to me is mouthing something at me. I thought nothing of it. Then the light turned green and i started driving. The girl pulled up next to me and pointed at my tire/SSEi emblem area and mouthed something again. Im not good at reading mouths, so i had no idea what to think. I pulled over in the parking lot of blockbuster, get out, look at the area she was pointing at, nothing wrong with it. All normal. Well, i don't know what she was talking about, guess she was just admiring my ride .........

She pulled into the turn lane as soon as she was done saying what she said. And she wasn't the best of a "looker" if ya know what i mean.

Is there a way to tell if my tire is a wabbler. Every now and then when im at highway speeds the front end of the car sort of slides back and forth without me doing anything to the steering wheel. And when i accelerate relatively hard through a turn the wheel wants to turn out. I'm sure if this was normal or not.

Lift the front of the car and support on jack stands. Grab the wheel top and bottom and check for any slop. In and out up and down, everything should be tight.
