Bent Rims? Gas Pedal Pulsating/Vibrating

2004 325xi (E46) with 25,000 miles.

When driving above 30mph, the gas pedal is vibrating/pulsating quite noticeably. Initially thought that I had a flat tire, but the tire pressures were all normal.

Took it to dealer, and they did a half-ass job of checking it. Told me that there werent sure why. They said it could be bent rims, bad tires, or lastly the axles.

Anyone else have similar issues in the past or know what is the most likely cause?

I am about to buy 4 rims w/ tires from craigslist but wanted to ask the forum experts if they had any ideas.

Figured out the cause for the gas pedal pulsating/vibrating.
In case anyone is also wondering, the reason for the gas pedal pulsating/vibrating is because my left front and left rear rims are bent (pictures attached).

Can someone tell me if it possible (and recommended) to repair these?
