Yup, and a "2010" should be "fly by wire" so the pedal vibration could only be a harmonic vibration caused by something else.....

The "cupped tires" certainly COULD be the actual issue, as they are likely to vibrate quite a bit!

When the alignment gets done, suspension joints, wheel bearings & brakes should be checked at the same time. Anything worn & loose could contribute to the problem - without knowing the mileage it's impossible to guess how likely that would be, but such a check for loose components is normal before wasting time trying to align something too loose to accurately align!
