My 2013 Honda civic had a vibration last spring and I was sure it was a bent wheel or bad tire on the right rear. So I jacked the car and took a paint can and a straightedge on it and spun the wheel and notice the wheel touches the straight edge in one specific location but no where else. So I said to myself it's a bent wheel,so I removed my winter steel wheels and tires and installed my summer tires and the vibration was gone. So I went out and bought a new steel rim on clearance so I would have it for next winter. Now winter comes and I went to Costco to get my winter tires installed, I needed new tires as well this year and noticed they didn't install my new rim even though I told them to. So I talked to the tire guy and he says there's no need for your new rim, the old one is fine. So can my old rim actually be fine if it touches the straightedge while spinning it? Maybe my wheel is still bent but he got it balanced? If I don't feel a vibration with my new winter tires, will a balanced bent wheel affect the tire? Or a balanced bent wheel is impossible? I drove the car and it seems fine but I would like to drive in another vehicle beside this one to see how that wheel acts going down the road.
