Something is Wobbling

Hey guys, back with something quite different! It involves my car's driving performance these past few days. I have noticed a wobbly sensation while driving, especially at slower speeds (less than 50km- this isn't a brake thing, as it's doing in while I'm accelerating).

I feel like the left side is where it's coming from. It goes away at higher speeds but returns at about 120km/hr on the highway. I've read a few things it could be but thought I'd ask: a bad tire? A bearing problem? Something warped? A broken joint?

Anyway, any ideas are appreciated before I decide to either go to the dealer or my local garage-mechanic tomorrow.

***I did just put air into the 4 tires this past week. Any coincidence?**

You either have a broken belt in that tire or a bent rim. Hit any good potholes lately?

Hey guys, and thanks Coby. Good question: the roads are ass up here in Canada from this killer winter so a pothole was likely the right guess. I just took it in; blown belts in TWO of the tires. Rims are good, and now 4 brand new tires on the Balt. Thanks again for the guess.
