Dardas,

Hopefully who ever sold you the new tires would not let you mount them on bent rims. If your rims are bent replace them, the cheapest way would be to find some used stock rims.

What you need to do is to go to a front end specialist that can drive over 60. Tell him you are not paying him to replace ball joints, struts or anything else. What you are paying is for him to solve the problem. Sometimes I hire a mechanic to replace a part or to perform a service. Other times I hire them to diagnose and solve an issue. Sure a professional will want a fee to diagnose and prepare a quote and that is fair. Shop around for a good front end specialist

Since your car is ten years old and you do not know how it was maintained for the first eight, it maybe that most of your front end components are/were shot. Since you do not have the knowledge to determine if a part needs replacing, find a pro that can.
