Having wheel trouble-question

Recently I slipped on some ice taking a turn and ended up sliding into a probably 6inch curb covered in mainly snow going probably 15-20mph and heard a knock. Thought I hit it somewhere on the front bumper, but got out and saw nothing on any of the body (or anywhere else, nothing on the wheels). Started driving and noticed nothing wrong with steering or the wheel. Once I got on the highway and started going around 40-50mph I felt a very strong vibration in the wheel and in the steering wheel. No noise but just a shaking, and gets worse with acceleration. So I must have hit the wheel somewhere. Any comments, or can tell me exactly what I would be dealing with?

Bent rim, probably at the hub which would make it shake like hell and get worse as speed increases. Probably need a new wheel.

first make sure the bolts are torqued properly. Then try and take the wheel to a shop to be balanced. They will tell you if it can be balanced or if the rim is too damaged.

The trailing arms are made to give/bend in an impact.

Put the car on a lift and check it out; esp if you just crashed it into a curb, no?
