Question: Car wobble

what could be a wrong with my car?

I was driving a my cv axle broke and my wheel started wobbling. it even spun 4 lug nuts off in the process. No that i replaced the cv and lug nuts my tire seems to lobe up in best terms like a cam shaft lobe where it gets to a point and seems to get up into the wheel well. so i put a new wheel hub and bearing on and it didnt fix anything. My car is lowered and the cv axle angle is a little steep but never causesd this problem before. I have also had the tires balanced. Its a Mk4 vr6 jetta. please help
