So When I accelerate faster than normal. example: getting on the freeway. around 30-40 mph I get a bad wobble like a tire is about to fall off. Then it goes away once I am past that speed.

It could be a few things, but I would start with an alignment and wheel balancing at a tire shop. They can also take a look and see if their is a drive axle or steering issue but most likely something small like a wheel just out of balance. Best of luck!

Also check the lug nuts to see if they are torqued down.
