The nuclear wobbling motion in the Lu region is studied by the microscopic cranked mean-field plus RFA method. The Woods-Saxon potential is used as a mean-field with a new parameterization which gives reliable description of rapidly rotating nuclei. The prescription of symmetry-preserving residual interaction makes the calculation of the RPA step parameter-free, and we find the wobbling-like RPA solution if the triaxial deformation of the mean-field is suitably chosen. It is shown that the calculated out-of-band B(E2) of the wobbling-like solution depends on the triaxial deformation in the same way as in the macroscopic rotor model, and can be used to probe the triaxiality of the nuclear mean-field.
