any shop with a spoke truing stand can give you a pretty good idea of the condition of the rim.

hmmm which part? the front rim or the rear rim? well either way you can use the stand and hook it up using swingarm spools then run it on gear one and you will be able to recognize the bended part on the rim. same goes for the front rim, just spin it and you'll recognize it.

Not always. I typically use a feeler gauge jig with the bike on stands to check run out on each side.
