HELP! Wheel Wobble

My friend pointed it out to me yesterday
Theres a slight wobble in my rear passenger wheel. Like im talkin 2-3mm of travel. Barely noticable. But today i was really noticing it. Travel is still the same.
So today at work. i put my car on the hoist *i work at a Crappy Tire* took my wheel of.. took the drum off. lightly sanded down the surfaces of where the drum and rim make contact. thinkin maybe something got stuck inbetween. Put it back on. Had the e-brake off the entire time. just spun the wheel on the car all tightened. still slight wobble

Now im thinking.. if it were my bearing.. id have some nasty noise. So is it possible of my actual hub being bent or warped?
Anyone have any other suggestions?

Tmr at work im gonna have the actual wheel balanced. just to make sure.
Even tho i can almost garuntee its not that.

Anyways any help would be appreciated

yeah......i'd say spin the wheel up tomorrow, and check the rim.....if it's not the rim.....could be the rubber itself.....

ok so i went carefully threw the rear wheel assembly and all today after work. since the other nite was just purely in carkness i looked at it
Ends up the face of the brake drum. where it makes contact with my rim. was warped somehow.
went to my work.. picked up a new drum for like 20 bucks
poped it on. its perfect now

thanx for the input tho!
