I've also never experienced what I thought was that much wiggle. My
tires are 26 x 2.35 Schwalbe Big Apple, on Sun Rhyno Lite rims, and if
you grab them, you can sort of put a little wiggle on them, but it
takes a lot of force. There's a tremendous spreading force on the rim
I don't notice much difference between 40 and 60 pounds in the tires,
except that I'm a little slower at 40psi.
Is it possible that the wiggle comes from the tread, instead? When I
have snow tires, the little studs pick up every irregularity in the
road, and it can feel rather fiddly.
