    I just purchased another k5. This time it's an 86 with only the 305 and 180,000 miles. Can't complain since it runs great and only cost me $450 and isn't too rusty. Anyways I was following my brother home when I noticed that the right rear tire had a wobble to it. Just curious if it could be a tire/rim problem, or if it has to do with the axle. Good thing is that I have a 79 k5 for parts if need be. So I was wondering if anybody had a clue what's wrong with it and how to fix it. Thanks for your time

    First thing that comes to my mind is that the tire might be out of balance???

    well, if you can visually see it wobbling.. how long has it been sitting? and how low on air was it when you picked it up? check that out... id bet its a bent rim...hell maybe even loose

    Last time this happened to me it turned out to be a bent axle.
