I just wanted to find out the top speed of my rig at the time I noticed it.

I'll probably just live with it up until I buy new tires. It's really a non-issue at "turtle" speeds I usually drive in.
If you look for a good tire shop or truck tire shop, they can balance and true your tires. They can also tell you if you have a bent wheel or not. The problem is, that letting it go could cause more problems later on. Good luck.

If tire balance doesn't solve the problem I would go straight to the carrier bearing on the drive shaft JMO

Harmonics on a 20" tire start around 70mph so balance or out of round are suspect as others have pointed out.

70 is max for me and I prefer 65 top end. (Not telling you eat to do) but even if lower speeds are not a problem the tire wear and impact on the drive train from balance are worth fixing.

Have you had your front suspension and steering linkage checked for possible excessive wear?
