Wobble at 20 mph

My 95 has a wobble when I'm rolling about 15 to 20 mph. I've looked at everything that I can think of from tires to the suspension. Btw I'm new to working on and fixing anything on cars and this is my first jeep. The only thing that I can find wrong is the front passenger side rotor has some grooves in the rotor. Is this enough to cause this? Wobble isn't to bad.

Tire out of round, unbalanced, or broken belt in tire would be the most common things

Have you tried rotating the tires? Too see if the wobble moves

There are more possibilities, but let's start with common

Getting ready to rotate them. I have only had the jeep since Febuary. Visually nothing wrong with tires.

Check your lug nuts too!😁 Jack up each corner and try to move your wheel and tire, see if you find any play. Check the ujoints on your front axle shafts and ball joints as well.

Also make sure you don't have a bent rim.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it - Don't worry, something will break soon enough for you to fix!

Thanks for all the info. I was missing 2 lug nuts but those had no affect on the tires. I think the PO had not rotated the tires at all. After rotating them the wobble changed to a mild shake so I took my spare and started trying it on the front due to the shake. I did find that the original drivers side rear which was now on the front was worn at a slight angle. That what was causing the wobble. It looks like I am buying new tires soon and will get the alianment checked. Once again thanks for the help.
