Trailing arm bushings... as a matter of fact, check ALL the rear bushings. Warped rotor would cause vibration, and bad bearing would cause grinding noise... not wobble. Hope this helped!

Tire treads letting lose? I had this problem even though the tread was nearly appearing non used. Age of the tire, hitting pot holes or other object, curb bumping, or just a bad tire. Have it all checked. Bearings will grind, rotors will cause a vibration especially when applying the brakes as joeybear1961 said. Trailing arms could be the issue also. bent wheel? balance? The rear end also needs alignment sometimes.
