Rear tire wobble

I just got done rebuilding my cj7 and I took it on the road and one of the rear tires is wobbling. I can't feel it but I've had a few people on the road honk and tell me it's wobbling. Does anybody think I may just need a balance and alignment or could it be more serious?

Bent rim, bent axle...I've had both problems on different rigs I've driven.
Take your spare (you do have a same size spare, right?) and put it on the side they say is wobbly. Drive around a bit and get someone to follow you. No more wobble-it's your rim.
Take it to a tire shop with a 'spin balancer' and have them mount it up-and if the rim is bent you'll see it right off.

Do you still have two piece axles!???? if so! probably a axle problem.
The tire replacement test will defenately narrow the problem!
