I installed brand new (from advanced auto parts) front axles in my optima, now when I go from drive to reverse or reverse to drive it jumps or skips and it seems to have a slight wobble when I drive it, the transmission shifts fine when I drive it and I don't hear any strange noises, I torqued everything to spec, it did have a slight shimmy before the work and I was told I have a bent rim

The wobble is most likely the wheel that you said.

The jumping or skipping, did you do anything under the hood to create this? Under the car should not effect this repair.

Ok, go over all your bolts to be sure you did not tighten everything
