No, unfortunately, I didn't know anything about getting a four wheel alignment -- I had never even heard of it before now ): And yes, I swapped off the mismatched tire for one of the same exact size and similar tread pattern.

Also, I feel the vibration at idol and my steering vibrates when I am driving as well -- I tried switching into neutral while I was driving to see if it still vibrates on neutral and it indeed does the same as if it is in drive (i'm mentioning this because someone told me to test it this way, although now I can't remember what it means if it still vibrates in neutral).

And yes, there is a good chance I have a bent wheel, but the last place I had the tires balanced and rotated said that the wheels weren't bent.
