It's just scared you are going to run it into the curb..
Has it ever been traumatized, curb rash, or any other ill events..? Ask it, and get back to me with it's answer..

I know someone it could talk to..

Lift up that corner of the car, and move the tire around - see if you get any movement - maybe the castle nut on the spindle could use another 1/4-1/2 turn. If you hear/feel movement, have someone eyeball it while you make it move/make noise.

I had a similar problem on my 300D. I would get an occasional front end woble on the drivers side wheel at highway speeds. It only happened 1 or twice in a week.I could usually stop the wooble by applying the brakes. It turned out to be the wheel bearing. It is a fairly easy fix.

You probably would not have a bad new wheel bearing, but more likely they have seated themselves more firmly as you have driven the car.

Probably worth re-doing the wheel bearing adjustment procedure.
