wheel wobble

what would be the cause of wheel wobble? Installed my new wheels and took for a rip down the road, and when I looked down at the right rear I noticed it has a slight wobble to it, and so does the left front. Whereas the other 2 run true and straight. I torqued them to about 70/ft.lbs. Was thinkin I would take off and spin them to the next bolt and put back on? Thx for any suggestions

Thanx Wes. Checked nuts and they are good. Does anyone know if atv tires need to be balanced/weighted? Or could this maybe be a wheel bearing issue? only got 1500 km's on the bike and I never noticed this with the stock wheels so I'm thinking its the new wheels but I dont know. Thx

it was just the bead on the old lady's bike that made it look like it was wobbling.

When I had my new Dirt Commanders installed they were balanced.
It could be lots of things, bent hub, bad bearings, out of balance, if you over tighten them the bolt hole can egg.

I e had this happen to me sometimes and if you don't put the lug nuts on in a star pattern you may not get the wheel lined up just right, happened once to me with the brute force I had got in a rush and just slapped the wheels on and had to wobblers, took them back off and finger tightened the lugs then wrenched them down in the star pattern and no more wobble. Hope this helps
