Wheels wobble while driving, can feel it in steering wheel.

If you are lucky, you only bent a wheel. Repair or replacement of the bent rim will correct this issue. Unfortunately, you may have hit hard enough to bend the lower control arm or possibly a tie rod. In some cases the bending may be visible to the naked eye. However, in most cases only a service center, using an alignment rack, will be able to determine the damaged component(s).

I hit a curb on the back driver side and now the wheel is bent what parts would i have to repair

It may be that you'll luck out with just a wheel change. Depends on how hard you hit the curb. If it got hit hard enough it can damage more, but the way to tell is to mount a straight wheel (pick one up at a wrecking yard for 1/2 the price of a new one). Then mount your tire on the wheel, put it on the lugs with the tire still in the air, give it a good spin and watch the tracking. Chances should be pretty good that you'll only need the wheel..

best advice at this time is to jack up both front wheels and support vehicle on stands! then remove wheels and check/compare damage with the undamaged side as to what damage has been done? then either come back with info ? for advice or have a competant mechanic localy? advise you ? i do appreciate you wish to save $$$$s in diy and you feel confident and wish to do the repair/s saving on garage labour costs but when job is done you will need to have steering tracking etc recheck hope this helps and wish you luck !

The ignition is locked and the car wont start.

Try Penetrating Oil Such as (PB Blaster) In the LOCK first . It is Hard for me to Connect the Accident to The Lock not Working It Really Had to have Hit it Hard , Unless The Front Wheel on that side Was Hit This Would Effect the Steering Hence the Ignition. Lock. Try the Penetrating Oil on it Its Obvious you Understand the Connection between Steering Wheel & Ignition Lock If this Fails The Ignition Lock Should Be Replaced. I hope you Have Luck with The Lube Fix As It Is SO Much LESS EXPENSIVE Than Replacing the Lock, Good Luck
