I recently bought a set of 17" centerlines[used] with about 20% tread on 245-40-17".My car pulled me around so much that my girlfreind got scared when she was in it.Its alot worse than your typical camber pull, or just having bald tires. So Im thinking my main problem is the 40 series rubber,or bent rims...can anyone help me out.

Bald 40 series tires are the cause. The tread depth will cause it alone, combine it with the width that will aggravate any steering play you already have and there is your problem.
Bent rims would shake like a mofo, not cause the concerns you are claiming.
