Good Day'
If she hit that hard I would recommend to get a wheel alignment do.
It's a good chance that it is now out, plus they well check all the components.

please let me know how you made out.

Cheers

Hit a curb and part of my rim is bent


Jack it up and spin the wheel, watch it to see if it is out of round, if there might be a bubble in the tire anywhere, (cords break inside the tire), or if the rim is bent. Use chalk as it spins to locate slight flaws. Compare wheel to tire while spinning. Check to see if the wheel is loose either at the hub, axle or lug nuts. Make sure your A frame or tie rods are not damaged. Use pry bars to see if everything is tight. Put a spare wheel on and see if it spins true and straight. If your wobble is only when braking it is probably a un-evenly worn brake rotor. Always chock (block) your wheels and apply emergency brake while jacking up a car. Take your time and be safe. Do not get distracted if you are running a jacked up car. Apply brake before moving shifter back to park to stop spinning wheel.

I ran off the road into a field to avoid hitting a deer. It was abrupt & bumpy. Now my front passenger tire is bent inward and steering wheel must be sideways for the truck to run straight. What are...


If the tire on the rim is still holding air and the rim isn't obviously bent it should be alright if you go nice and slow but would still be a better idea to put a spare on it if you got it. Slamming off the road though it's possible you just threw it out of alignment which would be great, but then again you could have bent part of your steering linkage.

WOBBLY WHEEL ON A HONDA


sound like you have tire out of balance or possibley a bent rim. i would jack the passenger side up grabbed the tire and see if it wobbles, if not then you have something wrong with the tire i would also turn the tire and look to see if you see any metal on the inside of the tire and feel for large knots. these factors will make the vehicle ride really rough let me know how this works out for you..

When driving my car the steering wheel shakes


If the steering wheel starts to shake between 55-65 MPH then you need to balance the wheels. If it shakes when you press the brakes, your brake rotors are warped and need to be cut or replaced. If the steering wheel shakes at low speeds then it's possible one of your rims is bent or one of your tires is out of round. Leaving a car parked for a long time in snowy and icy roads will damage your tires, causing them to warp. Depending on which situation is causing your steering wheel to shake, have it looked at.

I hit a curb on an icy road with my 92 s10. afterwards it seems like something is bent. what should i look at first?


Look at the tires and rims, look for any damages to the wheels and then check the steering and suspension parts. Any parts damaged or worn needs to be replaced and you may need the truck wheels checked for alignments. Good luck and keep me posted and make sure all you tires are at proper inflation of 32 PSI.

04 Nissan Quest Shaking while driving


Put on the spare tire and see if that helps. If it does, go to the tire store and use your hazard coverage for them to check your rim for being bent or your tire from having a bruised belt. The rim is your responsibility, the tire is the tire stores. An 04 should have spare rims in Salvage yards. You can go online for those if need be.

Loose steering tire wabbles


Unless your entire rack is loose, there's nothing you can tighten, but it sounds like you have a wheel problem, more than a steering problem. It's either out of balance or the rim is bent. Try putting your spare tire on that one, and see if the problem persists. Even if your steering is out of whack completely, it won't cause a vibration... just bad steering.
