Swap the left and right tires and see if the problem moves to the other side. If it does, it's the rim, if it doesn't then maybe the wheel shaft or another suspension part is bent.

What kind of car is this on?
What kind of tire and wheel is it (foam, rubber, etc)?
Check the hub, compare it to the others to see if that particular one is bent.
Can you get some pictures up of it? It could help us determine better.

I would look into 3 areas, it could either be:
1) Bent/buckled rim
2) Damaged wheel hub bearing
3) Bent wheel shaft
