Front wheel - warped

I discovered that the front wheel of the wreck that we are rebuilding has about a 1mm run-out. I see this from the inner most part of the side bead, and it is on both sides of he wheel in tandem, so it is actual run-out.

Looking for opinions: is this something that I should worry about? Will it matter at 100mph? We are trying to keep the expenses down. Thank you. JB

Radial or axial run out?

I have a front rim at the house doing nothing. Let me know if you need it. I can take the tire and rotors off, and it's yours for cheap or trade. Do you have a double bubble windscreen you don't need?

1mm isn't very much, I don't think it would be dangerous, but there is a chance it will vibrate at a certain speed.

BEFORE THIS TURNS INTO ONE OF THOSE THREADS WHERE EVERYONE GUESSES AND THINKS AND SUPPOSES...

The definitive answer is:
In the service manual on page 1-9 Wheel rim runout Service Limit is listed as such:
Radial: 2.0mm (.08 in)
Axial: 2.0mm (.08in)

Resident, if you only have 1.0mm, you are well within the factory Service Limit specifications.

Carry on with your normally scheduled conversations.

Radial (side to side). It may even be less than 1mm, I have not yet put a dial on it. Erik - thank you for the offer! lets see if I need to take you up on it. Thank you again.

The left rotor is off by almost 3mm, I have secured replacements already, I am pretty sure that 3mm in out of spec

Easy now...

It wasn't a guess it was an opinion.

I would run it.

and you looking it up the numbers verify I was right anyways.
