Post Rear wheel wobble
I have a 2008 Zuma and noticed while in the kickstand the rear wheel has a pretty good wobble to it. It’s not the tire, I held a steady screw driver next to the rim and it would rub, then not etc. Are these rims known to bend? The scoot is new to me so not sure what kind of abuse it had. I can’t imagine this is normal. Any suggestions?

I will have to look into the axle being bent or the rim. It really does not seem to affect the ride so I will just leave it for now.
