It seems that your wheel contact points are jittery when you are rotating right, but not when you are rotating left. This is probably what is causing it. You need to have better contact points.

Try setting the <implicitSpringDamper> to true for each wheel joint:

You also need to specify your surface/friction parameters in <gazebo>tags. Check out the URDF format: and this Gazebo guide:
