Default Wobbling Rear Tires

1971 Scout 800 B. Inline 6 Automatic

I did a full brake job and now both rear tires are wobbling. Checked for shake in the wheel bearings and those seem fine. Tires are in like new condition. No accidents so I doubt a bent rear axle.

Thoughts?

Drums not seated correctly?
Simple Tire balancing?
Bent rear Axle? Doubtful....
Rims look fine and hold air.

Thanks, fellas.
George

Did it wobble before you worked on it? If not you likely caused on of the items you listed.
If you don't know, jack it up and see what is out of true.

No, it wasn't wobbling before I did the brake job. I had to heat up and hammer the old drum on that side so that probably did some damage somewhere.

Hammered it on to the hub? Probably not seated or you could have bent the axle flange. Either way best to jack it up and see what is bent.
