    If you have spokes, check the adjustment on them. Also check your swing-by on your fork, neck bearings.

    "Bearings seem to be tight" is not a good indicator.
    You need a dial indicator to check for run out. Check the manual for max deflection.

    The same applies to tires. A dial indicator will show if a tire is out of round or if the sidewalls are distorted.

    Tire weights were already mentioned

    Check the end caps on the front fork that holds the front axle. Check the manual for correct torque.

    Check the neck bearings for clunks or noise when turning
