sand all the paint off the dropouts. Make sure all locknuts are tight before installing the wheel. Are you tightening enough?

When the river runs red, take the dirt road instead.

Make sure your wheels are true and centered and your spokes are tight, but not too tight. If you're trying to center your wheels to your frame/forks and your wheels are raked to one side or the other, this will cause a problem...as your hubs will not be sitting square to your frame. I've seen this a bunch of times and 75% of the time, it comes to this. Not to speak against you, but a lot of kids don't know how to build, tighten and true wheels, nowadays. The only reason I learned was because I was poor as fuck growing up and making shit last was key. This works better with your tire off, but what I do for a quick check is:

1. Look at your wheel from top side down. It's better if your bike is upside down and stationary.
2. Now, close one eye and line up the top of one side of your tire with the opposite side, paying attention to the distance between the lined up sides of your tire and the inside of the flange on your hub.
3. Now, go to the other side, still closing one eye and do the same. Most flanges are centred on the hub in BMX, so it's a good starting point.
5. Go back and forth between the 2 sides, spinning your wheel in small increments, until you can see a difference on each side or none at all.
6. If there is a substantial difference in distances, your wheel is shit kicked to one side and you need to true it. If not, then pray to the BMX gods that your frame isn't bent.

It's hard to fully explain it to you how to do this in text, but hopefully this helps. I use this method for building and truing wheels and have never owned a truing stand. I just use a pencil to mark my rim while my wheel is in place and some patience....beer helps, too. But, I've built wheels and kept them true with this method (within a 1\16th of an inch). Go from there, let me know how it pans out.
