Wheel scrubs ground while on stand

Ok, so I noticed while I started cleaning my chain with the rear wheel suspended on the rear stand, in two spots, about 4-5 inches apart, the wheel scrubs the ground. As I turned it, it would lightly scrub in two separate spots right in the middle of the tire. Not enough to lock up the wheel, but enough to where you could see and hear it and obviously tell it was making contact with the garage floor. I know for a fact I never hit anything that would have caused any damage to the rim or axle so....any thoughts?

My garage floor is level. Tire pressure? I've never seen a wheel do this before, especially one that has never had any substantial impact.

it could be that the bike sat in one position longer than the others resulting in the two points at the end of the flat spot being slightly lower than the rest of the tire as the extra material 'pooling' in those points. it may be that after heating up the tire, at the correct pressure during a ride, you could get the tire to return to round.
he! he! you said anal! :0
I hear ya. just don't get the chance to be 10 years old very often anymore. would be nice to hear an answer to this though.
Yes. We arrived in Sydney and drove to Katoomba for a couple days then to Newcastle and on to Toowoomba to visit relatives. we just got to Main Beach on the Gold Coast and will be here for two weeks.
