Pot Hole Damage

Hit a deep pot hole the other day. Now my front wheels seem to "wobble" slighty with some noise. Not constantly but enough to be a concern. The steering wheel also wobbles a bit now.

I know the hole put me out of alignment (which i plan on taking care of soon). But I wonder if there may be more damage (tie rod, axle, etc.)

Please respond if you've had this prob and how much were repairs

I think that's obvious based on what you describe.

Turns out to be a dent in my rim. Don't know how the tire didn't blow. No other damage. This is the first time since buying my G6 that I'm happy to have steel rims w/ hubcaps rather than chrome or aluminum.
