Default Silent Runner wobbling?

I recently received a Silent Runner from the Sugar Glider Shop and noticed that it wobbles when I spin it with my hand. Yet to see if it affects my hammys run time but still concerned, anyone else has this issue?

Did it arrive already assembled? When I first got mine it seemed to have a bit of a scissor action wobble. I had assembled it myself and hadn’t done it properly. The back and front panels need to be very firmly pressed in so that there is no gap at all at the edges of the little plastic joining strip that is on the running track. If there is a gap there you need to push the back and front together until there is no gap on the joining strip. After I solved that my wheel didn’t wobble. If it’s not that then maybe the nut at the back needs tightening. The bolt goes through the wheel, then the metal bolt sleeve/cover then the last short bit of bolt through the stand and then the nut.

It does sound as though it may not be assembled firmly enough, when I put mine back together I always put it face down on a firm surface & give it a good press down all the way round the rim, often even when it looks like it's ok you will still hear it click into place when you do that.
