How old is it? Could be bearings or one of the other issues mentioned. Do you have a third party hub guard on there instead of one of the original collars maybe?

The bearing units are totally standard and easy to get hold of for a few dollars...

I got some new cheap bearings to fix my wobble a couple weeks back and it sorted it out.

Buy those ones. The pair is cheaper than the cost to ship them.

Are you running the knight guards? I found when I ran them my wheel wobbled. Put the old collars back on and it's been good since

5 years+ suggests bearings are the likely cause. Knock em out and check them over.

I just sent mine to Odyssey and they sent me a new one in under 2 weeks. (It was an ugly army green though)

I need to replace the bearings in mine, but I have an aluminum guard on there that is completely seized. I'll probably have to just replace the axle.
