If you hit a pot hole hard enough to damage a tire it's likely you damaged a bearing. My bearing made a hide and seek vibration for nearly 3 years. The best way to determine when it is so subtle is to pull the axle out to remove CV axle and dif from equation and spin the wheel with a mechanic stethoscope.. a dying CV axle can also cause the symptoms.

The reason I mention bearing is that BMW has a Bulletin advising shops to replace bearing of any wheel impacted in an accident and that I've replaced at least 2-3 bearings that didn't wear out but were damaged from impact.
