i have currently a bent front rim on my 2002 gt, brand new front tires, about 3000-4000 miles on them, have driven all those miles with the rim bent, so i have been experiencing alot of steering wheel vibration, I am getting new rims in a couple weeks and was wondering should i replace my front tires?

I just had this same damn problem. Except the rim was cracked. Are you loosing any tire pressure? If so I would look at the tire and see if any rubber is missing or anything. But if the tire is fine, hell keep it.

When you bend a rim it throws the balance off !

I'd keep the tires on the new rims and just havem rotated and balanced when the rims are put on.
