new tire, new wobble

So I got a new front tire at the end of last season. I rode on it a few times and felt a wobble. At high speeds I didn't notice it, only when I would be stopping, going slow or coasting. I thought maybe it was due to breaking in a new tire. I have put several tires on the rear but this was the first time I had to replace the front. I have been riding it again this season and the wobble is still there. When I got the tire mounted I noticed that they didn't have to add any weights to balance it. I didn't see them actually balance it. could the balance cause this wobble? could the bearings be worn out at the exact time I get a new tire? I didn't follow the exact instructions as to how to put on re-install a front wheel on a 2000 zx1200A1. Could this be causing the wobble?

Yes, my brother chased a wobble for 2 years, 2 sets of tires until we changed his tires last and balanced them ourselves. He hasn't gone back to the dealer for tires since.
