Default Wobbling wheels

I noticed that when i push my car, all of the wheels wobble. Is this because the tires/wheels are worn, or because something is wrong with the chassis? I will tell you that when i first got the car i literraly drove the tires off a couple time and the plastic wheels got scuffed and scratched. I forgot to put glue on them when i first got it.

It could be that your wheels have become warped through hard impacts. if you hit stuff hard enough, wheels will either break or warp. This seems most likely, but I guess it could be possible that the axles could be bent as well.

There are many other things that it could be, but I would go through your wheels and suspension and driveline parts that could be causing this to happen. This something that we can really only guess about without having your car in our hands.

I have flipped it over a few times. I did notice that one of the pins that turns the wheel on the rear is bent slightly. also i believe that the wheels are warped. I have already ordered new wheels anyway because i am trying to make a NASCAR looking stock car. Thanx for the help.

when you say axels, do you mean the 4 pins that connect the wheels to the drivetrain?
