I hit the curb really hard while i was making a turn and...?

landed completely on top of the sidewalk i think my alignment went off. My car isn't drifting to the right or the left but my steering wheel is no longer aligned with my wheels. the car still goes straight even if im not holding on to the steering wheels. But, when i drive straight the steering wheel is tilted about 5-10 degrees to the right. I know i messed up my front-right tire because there is a tear on it, either way it needs to be replaced because it has the creases on the sides.

How much do you think it will cost to re-align my steering wheel.

I'm driving a Acura CL 2.3 1999

I feel blessed that i missed all the signs and that no one who was with me got hurt.

    First thing is change that tire. If you cannot afford a new one, at least throw it on the back. When it blows out (which it will if it is torn and has creases) you may be able to control the car better than losing a front tire.

    Hopefully you did not bend an arm on the steering rack, and a simple realignment will take care of it. You will need to have two good matching tires on the front for a proper alignment to be performed. Should cost about $60-80 for the alignment if no parts required.
