Strange Problem, Need Help ASAP

Hey guys, this morning on my way to work my WK started acting up, it has a weird wobble to it, thats the best way i can describe it. Almost like one tire has a flat spot on it but they dont. I checked when I got to work and the drivers side rear tire was missing a wheel weight, I got it re balanced and had all the lugs checked while I was in work. It still got a weird wobble, any ideas?

I had a similar thing happen to me...

Steering wheel and Jeep shaking like crazy above 50mph...Turned out I had snow that froze up on the inside of the rim! Cleaned it out and problem solved!

Ill have to check and dislodge anything but its not just that, even when rolling at like ten mph it feels like I'm driving with something stuck to a tire.

Oh, Got ya! Why dont you try to toss your spare on for each tire and see if it goes away?
