tire bubble / bent rim

i have the 20" wheels and have some questions.

is it possible to bend a rim without getting a tire bubble?

how can you tell if you have a bent rim if the rim doesnt look bent?

how do dealers check for bent rims?

if i suspect a bent rim would the dealer check same free of charge?

are alignments necessary after getting a tire bubble? how about after getting a bent rim?

and, if necessary, does the bmw protection wheel and tire insurance plan cover alignments?

thank you mean m3.

so one more question.

if the average tire bubble / bent rim does not necessitate an alignment, what type of impact would?

thanks again.
