No, you check a wheel bearing by grabbing the top and bottom of the tyre and try and rock in and out looking for play. Worn bearing also make a noise when you drive, a whine or a drone. Normal cause of wobble is balance weights falling off, or a bent rim. On my Lexus, I had a slight wobble in the steering wheel and it turned out the alloy rim was out of true.
wobbling from the rear end can be from worn suspension rubbers in the control arms. Normally it is from belt separation in the tyres and bulges in the side walls
I take it that it is a front wheel drive with no diff action at the rear.
another point may be that the rear brakes are grabbing ( out of round drums or warped discs) that is causing the vehicle to react as if the rear is loose.
Front wheel to rear wheel alignment needs to be checked. Both in same vertical plane and both on same centerline. (you can use an 8'flouresent bulb for this. Takes two people. Also check spokes in the back wheel. Hope this helps.
Not sure about the Ford Focus issue?? If your motorized bicycle has wire spokes, they should be adjustable. Just tightening the spokes will pull the rim to that side. The opposite when loosening them etc. If your wheels are of the mag type like a car, then maybe a bike shop can straighten out the wobble without more damage.
Hi, Immanuel and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non-standard equipment on the front end such as heavy radio receivers extra lighting equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tires or improper front-rear tire combination.
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. The shock absorber is not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts. Torque to recommended specifications.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing end play.
9. Improperly vehicle alignment.
10. Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires are out-of-round or eccentric with the hub.
13. Rims and tires are out-of-true sideways.
14. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
15. Worn engine stabilizer links.
16. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
17. Swing arm pivot shaft improperly tightened or assembled.

I assume that the wobble is side to side and not up and down. The most benign cause of wheel wobble is a bent tire rim; but since you've tried another wheel and still get the wobble, the cause could be a bent housing, bad bearing, a number of things. In any case, if you don't get it fixed, a castastrophic failure is likely to happen. The rear axle is semi-floating; the axle and wheel are held on only by the pressed-on bearing and a small circlip. See a mechanic ASAP.
sounds like your rear wheel bearing has collapsed, which in summery is a very bad thing i would not get your male friend to replace this as it is a very big job witch requires specialty tool eg. 10 tone press. also if the bearing is replaced wrong it can course feather problems at the worst i will loss the rear wheel at the best the abs may stop working. your best bet is to have the car towed to a ford dealer our to a differential specialist the latter may be a cheaper option.
full credit to you for jacking up your car and checking it that is more then most people do these days
