If it's that bad, I would consider removing/drilling out the rivets and replacing with bolts/nuts/washers to get me home.

The wobbling wheel has been corrected. These are not normal rivets, these things are 3/4" in diameter. I called them rivets because I did not know what they are called. The brake pads are fine.
