Tire shop (discount tire) revealed impact bubble on front tire. They informed me they consider this evidence of bent rim. That's not impossible; I brought it in seeking wheel rebalance.

I am original owner, & I am still using OEM racing harts. Can anyone suggest a replacement that is closest to 2005 OEM Racing Hart wheels?

Can anyone share their tire preference? I've been using varying Toyo models since 2005. I recall that the original Toyo Proxes were much maligned by this forum circa 2005. Understanding that reality, can anyone recommend something they enjoy? I actually enjoyed the Proxes, (especially the tread appearance) but I don't take my car to the track. It just get me around town, but I would prefer a performance tire.

When I bought my 2004 MSM last year, I noticed two bent rims as well.  The Racing Harts seem to be prone to that, however, not knowing enough to jump to the 15" wheels, I had them straightened and they have been fine since then.  There is probably a good wheel shop in town that will straighten them for about $75 each.
