so I went to visit my wife's fam in NYC and wouldn't you know those are the devils roads out there lol..long story short I hit a pothole or a bump at night which made the car shake hard I get back to the house I have a bubble bout the size of a 50 cent piece on the sidewall! now here comes the vibrations that occur only at 60-65mph but above that it's smooth like it should be..my question is do u think the rim is bent or is it from the bubble on the sidewall..thanks
ps:they are the 19s sport wheels

vibration usually means bent wheel.

In the meantime, try to avoid driving freeway until you have that wheel checked out.

i think it can also be from the bubble hopefully the wheel isn't bent but If the wheel is bent what's the best solution? find a wheel repair shop or buy a new rim

And more importantly, replace the tire. You dont want that tire to go out unexpectedly. Better yet see if you car came with spare.

Cheers!
