Steering wheel shakes a little in highway

Hi all,
I have a 15 MDX AWD/Tech, so since last time I hit a pothole(big and deep) in highway at around 55mph, I replaced the rim b/c it was bend, and I replaced all 4 struts, both front start leaking, and both rear do not retract after compress, so I bought oem parts online and have them replaced at the store, also, I replaced both rear bar link, the car felt so more stable while making turn, but steering wheel also off center a little after replacement, after all these, I did the wheel balancing, a 4 wheel alignment.
Here is the problem after all, on highway, I felt my steering wheel start shaking when making slight turning at 40-60 mph, going straight seems fine, but sometimes, it also shakes, I tried to convince myself this was due to the highway road surface, but this week, I sent my car in the dealership to address a TBS, and they are missing part so they gave me a loaner, 19 RDX, when driving back home, I didn't notice any shaking on the steering wheel at all, so question, what else did the car break by the pothole damage? Is it possible they break something while replacing strut? I spoke to the body shop yesterday, and the guy said its because of the tire balancing, they will do it again, I will bring my car in after I got it back from the dealer.
Last but not least, STUPID POTHOLE.

When i bought my 12 TL all 4 rims were bent from pot holes, 1 was like a pancake on the inside.

In NJ you can straighten the rims for about 100-150 each, cheaper than buying new. and if they are not bent at least you know.

I'll be taking the wife's car to install new tires and check the rims at the same time

Mine was 19in wheel, and I got a used rim from salvage car part for $130, it's very good. The shop did offer me a option to fix the wheel, but costs over $100, so I decide to go with a perfect condition used wheel.

More than likely shake is from a bad tire. Not common, but even a brand new premium tire can be bad. Belt shift during construction does occur.
