If you give the wheel and its suspension a good looking over, you will find something bent or broken. Make sure all the lugs are still on the wheel and tight. Look for dents in the rim. The brake disk could be bent/warped. A tie rod could be bent. There are other components that also should be examined and if you know what to look for, dig in- If not, put the car in the shop andhave an alignment or suspension expert examine it.
