Small blades are tricky, but certainly not impossible.
Place a pointer near the crown of each wheel so you can see if there is any shifting of the apparent crown or excessive runout as you spin the wheel by hand (no blade installed).

If it appears the crown “moves around”, sanding the tire will let you restore the crown.

Also consider the possibility of failing bearings. Given you had tracking by hand then lost it when you applied power could indicate the wheel(s) shift a bit when under power, Simply trying to shift the wheels by hand at 9 & 3 o’clock should let you know.
