I need help with my tire. I have 29er AC wheels, The rear is true but I am getting a side to side wobble that seems to be the tire. I took it off and moounted it again but have the same problem. I am running them tubeless (specialized tires).

The tire may not be beaded perfectly.

With the pressure really low, go around each bead and with your thumbs roll the tire to draw out the bead in the low spots. You may hear some popping/snapping when the bead properly seats.

Also you may have a slight rim pinch on one side which has caused the rim to bend slightly inward. You should be able to see the small reference line on the tires side-wall and visually gauge the gap between this and the rim's edge. I bet you will find a section of rim with a few more mm of gap. This presence may show you were to mark and look for a inward bent rim edge.

It is possible the tire has a wobble and will not be able to be set straight by the installation. Try re-installing the tire a couple of times, and bring up the pressure to the stated max to see if this corrects it. If not you can either live with it or contact your supplier.
