Your pics show .17mm difference? That’s .0066” which isn’t great, but isn’t a total show stopper either.

Test it again by removing your blade, raising the blade height as high as it will go and tilting the arbor over to 45 degrees. Then rig your indicator to read directly on the arbor flange (raising and tilting makes it easier). You should be at .05mm total runout MAX.

You may be able to see and/or feel what’s binding if anything. My Unisaw does this just from the belts taking a set. A few minutes of running and warming up the belts makes it turn smoothly.

Edit to add pic for reference:
