What I meant was, for example, last week someone came to me with a Jetta with similar complaint. I put my foot on top of the wheel in question and push and pulled on the tire, I could move it by about a solid inch. Typically, you would have to put it on a jack and grab the wheel at say 9 and 3 o'clock to feel the loose bearings. It was so bad in this case I knew what it was without taking the wheel off. Assuming you don't have the time or ability to jack it up, grab the top of each tire and rock it hard back and forth just to make sure its tight. But aside from that, see if there is a Firestone nearby. I would ask them to double check the balance of the tires because you think the weight came off from the tires you just had put on elsewhere. Make sure they will do it for free, at least try. If there's a serious issue they'll find it for you. They always do.
