Double check your rear axle alignment. Misalignment can cause wobble at higher speeds.

check to make sure your not running a bias and a radial.
Axle alignment

Spokes? Check both radial and lateral runout on the wheel AND the tire. Also all the above stuff.

I've had the bead break while out, check that too. Any place where the tire appears to separate from the rim. You could deflate the tire and put some soap around it to get it to slide onto the rim, reinflate it. Misalignment IMO causes a pull to the left/right, not necessarily a wobble.

Misalignment in the rear will most definitely cause a bad wobble at high speed, I' e been down that road.
