The wheel should fit pretty snuggly over the center hub of the axle. If you don't tighten the bolts correctly you can get the wheel on crooked and cause a wobble. I suspect it's your technique and has little to do with the axle adjustments you've made.

I usually run all the lug nuts down until they contact the wheel before tightening them in a skip pattern. I'd also recommend inspecting the end of the axle and back of the wheel to make sure there is no rust or debri that could cause the wheel not to fit snuggly to the end of the axle.

Bent rims and / or bent axles? If assocoiated with some kind of noise, i'd lean toward an axle. I had one bent on an 8.2 10 bolt. Replaced with moser axles, and all is fine now.
