Default 2005 Ram 1500 D/S rear tire wobbles / vibrates

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT 5.7 Himi, and yesterday I started to feel what I think is a wobble coming from the D/S rear tire. I’m not sure what has caused this. I looked under and all around the back and could see no visible evidence of anything wrong, however I notice that the center of the D/S tire (along the white letters) is completely clean like it has been rubbing something. But I couldn’t find any thing that it could be hitting and it doesn’t feel like a rub just a steady wobble. I did just change the front brakes back on the 4t of July after about two months of driving around on bad brakes. They were pretty thin when I took them off. Could the extra work load on the rear brakes have caused this?

Hey, you most likely scrubed the curb when you was going into a shopping mall, hopefuly
you did not warp the rim, and no the brakes did not cause this, you can check the rim by
jacking up the tire just off the ground,and place a spray can up close to the tire , then spin the tire and look for run out, hope this helps, jessman

Also, check to see that you haven't spun off a weight from the rim or has rotated around the rim. This sometimes happens.

Also, check your wheel torque. It's a good idea to check it twice, once right after you put the wheel back on and then about 300 to 500 miles later.
