Couple zip tiess. Zip em to the fork or the chain or seat stays and spin the wheel. If it gets closer to touching one side of a zip tie, it needs to be pulled the opposite way of the closer zip tie. Make them almost touch the rim and you will hear the high spots.

Oh...you mean a rim by itself, sorry... I was thinking youwere referring to the whole wheel.
