Raise car, put on stands. Grasp tire and push/pull both horizontally and vertically, if any movement then possible wheel bearing, ball joint, tie rod, control arm bushing.
Check CV boots for any signs of leakage or cuts/rips in rubber boot.
If all is OK, then check fluid level in trans. If OK then have trans checked at trusted trans shop.
Could be as simple as a sticking TCC solenoid (torque convertor clutch).
