    Is it the rim or the tire?
    The foam could be bunched up funny inside causing issues...
    Could have a bent rim...
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    or could have sand in them

    I cut a pair of vent holes at opposite sides in the middle of the tread of every off road tire I have just to prevent this
    fix, run, break, repeat

    remember there is alot of play in the control arms and knuckles of the 1/16 design? well, this could be ending up as wheel wobble. take the wheels off, slide them on a rod that you know to be straight, spin them and watch the edge of the rim. if the rim is true, and it doesnt show you the same wobble, check the axle and control arms. may just be inherent.

    then again, you could have a bad tire too

    eliminate components until you find what is bent or causeing the issue
