D250's wobble. Haven't tried anything else yet.

The wobble is rarely to barely noticeable with hands on - very noticeable to sometimes even severe with hands off.

Thought about trying to pursue it, decided it wasn't enough of a problem to worry about.

I wonder how much this may have to do with balance?

They say that aluminum rims typically do not have the heavy point at the valve stem.

Perhaps shops that automatically assume the heavy spot is at the valve are throwing tires on accordingly, and the balance is not quite right.

In the cases where you got the wobbles, is there a possiblity that the tire may not have been balanced right?
