Can Bent Wheels Cause Vibrations At 80MPH?

Hello,

So one of my front AG M590 wheels are bent at the lip and I get slight vibrations at the wheel at 80-90mph. I tried to re balance two times. Even road force balancing. My control arms are brand new so it can't be that. Can it be the bent wheel even though it's balanced?

Absolutely. You're spinning a non-round object at high speed. Sometimes you can balance out a slight bend, sometimes the bend is too big to balance it. Either see if you can get a refinishing shop to straighten it back out, or replace the wheel.

Take a fidget spinner and put a bend on one end of it.. then spin it. You will feel vibration.

Now apply this on a car and the distance x force will induce a vibration a certain speeds.

I also just found out I have a bent rim in the rear as well. Could I just replace the front wheel now and not feel the vibrations anymore or do I have to do the rear as well?

Usually you feel a bent front wheel in the steering wheel, and a rear one in the seats. Rears usually make the whole car vibrate.
