I am borrowing a friends BMW and have noticed that the steering wheel shimmys and @ pulls a little to the right. At higher highway speeds, when changing lanes, the right front tire rattles really loud when steering slightly to the left. Almost like the wheel is loose. Got out and shook front of car, and lug nuts appear to be tight. Ideas? Thanks!

Thanks Dr Hagerty! I will let him know to get it checked out. When I raised the front right side, the lug nuts are tight, but the wheel still had some movement in it, if I put my hands on both sides and moved it toward and away from me, which did appear to be caused by the lower arm bracket being loose. Possibly. Thanks again.
