How can I fix a wobbly tyre? You read right, wobbly tyre, not the wheel

Hello guys! Little help needed here😅 Yesterday I installed a new set of 28mm gp5000 on my emonda! I set them up tubeless on a pair of Vision sc40 wheels, which I know are almost perfectly true (they went to the bike shop last week to true them). Today on my ride I noticed the front tyre was "wobbly". I don't know how else to describe the issue, but it seems like it's moving from side to side as you can see on the video. The rear wheel doesn't seem to do anything like this. Do you guys have any idea why it does that? And how could I fix this? I find this really annoying

Here's is 2 small clips showing the wobble: https://photos.app.goo.gl/28Bs7kCdDrfj7V517

Thanks a lot for your help

Was the wheel "wobbly" before going to the shop other than needing a little truing? Sounds like they might have missed something when reinstalling (missing hardware?). I could not access the video so I might be making a wrong assumption in regards to your problem. Since they worked on it, I would bring it back and see if they can correct a problem that I presume did not exist beforehand.
Take care,
Jesper

You don't fix that.

Deviations in the rubber are normal, and are the product of how you get up on the bike to sprint and how you tilt it when you ride.
