    Wheel wobbling

    Took out my revo today to run a little bit with it, and upon starting to drive i noticed
    one of my rear tires were wobbling like crazy.

    Obviously this is nothing good and creates excessive vibrations which can damage other
    parts so i proceeded to inspect the truck as following.

    1. Checked if both wheels had the same amount of play, they did.
    2. Took the wheel off and re-attached it a couple of times, still wobbling and pretty much the same amount.
    3. Checked if the tire were glued to the rim properly still, it was.
    4. Squeezed the tire all around, sure some water came out of it but still nothing which could
    cause the wobbling when you actually see it by spinning it by hand.
    5. Took the wheel off again, checked the hub and the pin itself which holds the hub, looked all good.
    6. As im using RPM True-Track Rear A-arms i checked if the driveshaft were set into it properly and
    the bearings, all good there as well.

    Well that's what i've done in order to try to find what could cause the wobbling and im pretty much stuck
    now. Any ideas on what else i can do in order to find out what makes the wheel think its in hawaii and
    dancing hula hula?

    I have the same issue... it's as if she needs to go to the shop for a balancing!! I believe it is how the tires were glued from the factory. Didn't think much of it, but I'm sure the excess vibration can be damaging over time

    Problem solved, attached another tire which spinned just fine onto the axle in question. Were the rim which got deformed in a crash or something. Time to invest in new rims and tires!
