    What fork are you running? Some are pretty flexy and can cause the wheel to move over under hard braking.

    Should this happen if the rotor is centered?

    When my front brake grabs the rotor I can visibly see the whole wheel move to the side with the braking.
    Everything is tight and I have J3s. Is the rotor not centered?

    The total lateral force on an off centered shouldn't be anything compared to the braking load which should be pretty much the same in either case so it can't be caused by off center rotor. Perhaps you can describe it in a little more detail
    - Setup - hub, lacing pattern
    - Motion - sliding or tilting

    The top of the wheel tilts to the side the rotor is on

    How about the easy answer: loose hub bearings...

    I was leaning towards sanjuro's conclusion too. Are you sure everything is tight?

    Sounds very much like loose hub bearings...can't think of anything else it could be, unless the through axle is loose in the fork.

    happy trails...
