Hello,
I have a rear tire that wobbles. I jacked it up and swapped tires around and it still wobbles. It's a newer tusk axle and newer hole shot HD tires. Anyone ever have this problem? I doubt I bent the rear rim, that seems unlikely (not impossible). So I'm thinking the tire has a flaw in it?
It starts to shake really bad as soon as I grab 4th gear. It's very noticeable when jacked up and idling in 2nd gear.
Any suggestions?

I am assuming the wobble stayed with the tire when you swapped them ruling out axle and hub. Try to set up a stick or pointer contraption that you can place next to your rim so your can see if the rim is wobbly or not when you turn it. You want to check for any side to side or up and down movement.
Tires can do this but I have only seen them do it from bad manufacturing right from the beginning.

Yes the same tire/rim wobbles even on the opposite side. That's not a bad idea there. I'll give that a shot.
Being hole shot tires I wouldn't think it would be bad. They are pretty repeatable.
I had a local tire shop mount them. Visually it looks beaded properly but who knows since they don't really balance them.
