Wobbling front tyre of palio 1.2 2002
Had my car tyres alinged, balanced a couple of months ago. They had also
adjusted the camber with a bolt at that time and had said that the tyres are
wearing out and have to be replaced. The place I usually get it done from is
Recently the front right wheel feels wobbly when driving (even at low
speeds). If i stand in front of the car and ask my driver to drive it, i can see the wheel wobbling
Car is a 1.2 Palio 2002 with around 25k on it. Driven locally in Mumbai on horrendously bad roads (those who drive from Ghatkopar to Andheri thru Asalfa will be easily able to navigate surfaces on the Moon or Mars).
Before the tyre guy tells me it is the tyres and the mechanic tells me it is
the suspension arm wanted to see if people have experienced this before.

Could be a couple of things - The rim might be bent out of shape. Try replacing it with the spare wheel to rule that out. If changing wheels doesn't help then its the suspension that's damaged.

My car too wobbles a bit, and tyres wear out unevenly.
My 2 front tyres were in bad shape, and had uneven wear, hence I put the back tyres front and started using the stepney and 1 new tyre was bought, hence now the tyres in the car are all good, but even then I feel a slight wobble.
My car has Alloys, can alloys be bent? or is the problem somewhere else, very diificult to locate the problem.

I faced a similar problem on my Palio, but with rear wheels. Just run your hand along the outer surface of the tire at both inner and outer edges. If there are any irregularities then it means the tire has not worn out smoothly. This can also be the cause of wobble.
Have you also tired swapping the tires? (front & rear)

Check for tread wear. Swap the tires. Uneven tread wear could be due to driving for long duration with overinflated or underinflated tires either all or some of them. If I remember correctly, the PSI for Palio is 28 under normal loads and 30 under higher loads.
Also check wheel alignment at a good place.
