Does the vibration now seem DIFFERENT in any way than the vibration before the wheels/tires?

Possibility: there was a vibration caused by the bent wheel. Now that's gone...but a new vibration due to new wheels. Common with aftermarket wheels, they usually are no longer hub-centric (centered by the hub) and are only lug-centric now. Aftermarket wheel companys will make the inner bore of the wheel larger so that it can be used on more vehicles. So what happens is your wheel can be slightly off center and cause a "vibration" while at speed. I am currently experiencing this with my new wheels. Every time I take my wheels off to do maintenance and put them back on, the vibration is coming from a new spot. Because sometimes I luck out and the wheel snugs up centered, and sometimes it doesn't.
