Wheel wobble

Well,I have a 10 bolt non posi rear end from a 72 Chevelle in my 54 Chevy truck.Have wobble in the rear wheels. Tried a different set of rims that I had off another project. No change. Pulled the axles,seem Ok. Can bearing wear cause this,or do I need to be looking at something else.

It's more likely that someone slammed a curb hard and tweeked the axles. Can you jack it up and remove the wheels and drums and then spin the axles with a dial indicator on them? That would help a bunch. A small amount on the axle flange will equate to a lot when you get to the edge of the tire.
