I have a Raleigh chain ring and I've noticed that it has a slight wobble to it. Not enough to look horrible, but just enough to notice. Could I assume that in time that would wear the bearings out in the Sturmey Archer hub and possibly the bottom bracket?

NO.

If you wish you can straighten the chainwheel, either with a home-adapted tool or a purpose-made one such as the Lajeunesse from Biocycle Research Products of Concord California.

tip - when straightening a c/w try to make your adjustments from as close to the centre (down low) as possible, save for the case of deformed dentition.
