I seemed to have bent my front right rim on a mean pot hole in the city of brotherly love. I noticed at high speeds I get a shake. I plan to but another rim very soon. The question is will the bent rim ruin the wheel bearing by having the wheel wobble?

I have not seen it cause a problem with the bearing, however, if you hit it that hard, I would have the alignment checked.

That is a good point. I Believe that steering is off just a tad.. I was a little hesitant about taking it for a alignment, I have read threads relating to the fact that they can't get it right after they try and align it. I will put the spare on to see if it totally smooths out. If the bearing is bad I will be able tell with the spare on...

Thanks
