Persisting vibration-'09 Extra Cab

Afternoon, folks....

I have an '09 Extra Cab, 4.0 Sohc 2WD...

I have had a persisting vibration (starting at about 40-45mph) I hit a dog at about 60 mph (worst night of my life) and its been an issue ever since. I have replaced the wheels with aftermarket as at least 2 of them were bent. I had to drive on the bent wheels for a while, so I guess my question is...Is it possible that I have messed up the front hub and/or rear axle by driving on the bent wheels for a while? The vibration continues, even after replacing the wheels. I'm going to have them re-balanced at next oil change, but I'm wondering if the problem isn't deeper than that. Thanks in advance for all feedback and help

Can you pinpoint where the vibration is come from? My guess would be a tire balance and/or alignment issue.

Well, the vibration can be felt in steering wheel and in seat right now. Steering wheel is worse at the moment. Like I was saying, going to have tires balanced at next oil change, but this is something that was present with old wheels and tires also. Alignment was done when I had new tires mounted, but who knows?

It could be uneven wear on the tires. No alignment or balances going to correct badly or uneven tires. If you messed up the axles or hubs you would probably hear some grinding noise of some sort.
