If the bearings feel smooth and you don't find the rim or tire rubbing anything, then maybe best to just put it out of your mind before you spend lots of money to fix something that may not cause any future problems.

A slightly out of round wheel or tire not seated to depth evenly might let the tire tread hit the calipers or another part of the frame.
