    I just bought a Lazer Z. 7 Hours on it and noticed the rear left tire has a wobble to it.What could be the problem with it . Lug nuts are tight along with the hub nut.

    Mike is 100% right, bent wheel or tire is deformed.

    If it only looks like it is wobbling the tire could have a bead that is not on all of the way. Can you feel it, or does it look like it's wobbling.

    I have seen units that set in one spot for a long time get a flat spot in the tire. This will go away after you drive it a little.

    Thanks, Fred.
