Exclamation Car pulls and steering wheel shakes/vibrates?

I don't know if you guys read my flat tire thread, but basically i drove on a flat tire for about 5 miles and had all 4 tires replaced because I was afraid of damaging the differential.

Well after this incident, I now feel a decent vibration in the steering wheel and the car wants to pull to the right. I do have 1 bent wheel and its in the rear passenger side. However, this wheel was bent before the flat tire incident and I didn't feel any vibration in the steering wheel before.

Is it possible that I bent another wheel while driving on the flat and I am feeling the effects of that? Could bent wheels pull a car towards one direction and cause vibration in the steering wheel? Are there any components that I should take a look at just in case? Any input appreciated!!

Have your alignment checked and tires balanced. You may need to replace your bent rim if the tire shop recommends.
