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.

First time on stand ever/bike has been sitting off stand in storage, but has been rolled every other day so tire eventually makes a full rotation as to not get flat spots.

Cold tire

Tire only has 863 original miles

Haven't tried a pointer on the bead
Sorry, guess I should have stated it's the stock tire. It was never removed, but the chain was adjusted once at the first service.

It was parked since November, but I rolled it a few inches every other day. Needless too say, it's ended up parked in every inch of my garage floor.

I'm really anal about tire pressure so..never rode it with the wrong amounts.
Hey guys..sorry for the delay, been busy as all get out. I will get some pics up soon and want to move the bike in a different spot, just make sure there wasn't anything under one of the stand wheels? Never know. And no...the stand wasn't near the pivot points..:p

All is well. Turns out, it was the garage floor being unlevel. I couldn't see it, but when I moved the bike and stand to a different place, everything was fine. Sorry it took me a few years to reply.
