Are your wheels balanced? If not, this maybe the problem.

Traxxas wheels are not balanced and their tires are not tru. This could be your problem with tires that wobble. If it really bothers you get a wheel balancer and balance your wheels+tires

Hey guys it sounds like your tires are wobbly because, either you have worn out bushings or worn out bearings.
Try replacing them and that should help you out alot.
Another thing is check your turnbuckle ball joints too, they tend to wear and get alittle loose with use, same goes with where the caster and uprights are pinned together and a-arms.
Check there for sloppy movement.
By checking all this, it should Solve your problems with your wheels wobbling

I added the bearings to my front wheels and helped this problem.

you could have flat spots on your tires, you should drill 2 small "breather" holes on the inside of your rims to allow for better traction http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

You don't .. DON"T .. want holes in the rims...They will collect water and dirt. If your use'n foams then the foams get wet and will never dry until disassembled. http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/eek.gif If you have holes plug'm up with clear silicone calking (3M - 5200).
