are your lugs tight? or is your axle straight?

Try swapping the rear tires from side to side and see if it is wheel related, or suspension related.

Hrmm.

Any noise coming from the hub? Could be a bad wheel bearing or CV joint, if so...

Check the CV boot and see if it's torn. If it is, feel inside the tear and if it feels grainy, like metal or dirt particles are inside, then it's toast and the axle needs to be replaced. If it feels like it's full of grease but not dirty, then the joint is still ok but the boot needs to be replaced (and this wouldn't cause a wobbling wheel). A new axle with ABS is like 130$ and w/o ABS is 120$. In a shop it would most likely be 1-2 hours diagnosis/labor so you may be looking at 250$-370$.

If it's a bad wheel bearing then it needs to be pulled out and replaced (non serviceable/need pullers) and I belive the bearing is somewhere of the neighborhood of 60$? This would cause a wobbling wheel. In a shop, it'll prolly be an hour or two diagnosis/labor, which means 180-300$.

If there's no noise, could be a bent hub, wheel or arm...
