No noise, no wobble has run over 1k miles with the problem - it is not the wheel bearings. It may kill the bearings but that is the other way around.
Toe problems can cause that with big tires and a lift. Chances are excellent that there is more than 1/8 in run out on the tread face. The normal tire shop just replaces tires that have more than .100 runout but they can be cut round. If you can find a shop with a tire truing machine they will be round, you just lose the high points that make it bounce. They can then be balanced and it will last most of the tire life.
If you cranked on the tie rods, you can set the toe correctly. I chalk a line around the tire while it on the jack and then scribe a line with a scribe that is thin so that the line on the tape and the line of black are the same. put it back on the ground and roll it 6 feet forward to get the strain that is there when driving. Good eye sight is needed to measure 8 in above the floor from he line on one tire to the line on the other tire. I don't have the spec but the tires are always closer at the front than the back and the amount is always under 1/8 in but normally 1/32 - 1/16. I generally set mine so that the line for the rule and the scribed line are an exact match on one side and 1/2 the width of the scale line off on the other side commonly known as 0 toe in. It is often that it will 'hunt' without a little more caster angle or a little ofset on the caster so it leads right. I prefer that it lead right 4 feet in 300 to 500 feet.
If you make an adjustment in toe it needs to roll foward agin to check the results, tires 'spring' tension unless they are setting on a turn tables that are in good shape.
Taping the measuring tape to a boardand setting the board on cinder blocks will let you read both sides.
The truing machine cuts the rubber with a 36 grit sanding disk and it is normal to stop when there is spaces less than 6 in long, except for 'worming' wear pattern. They can also set the stagger by making tires the same diameter.
Wrong stagger can cause buckboarding and other rough ride, 4x4 need to match.
