The car makes a noise and my uncle says it is a bent rod, but it still runs. Should I buy 4 new tires to get this car on the road or is it a gonner.

As a mechanic I can tell you rods dont bend the bearing on the crank end can be worn causing a rapping sound if crank has not been scored by a spun bearing and assuming the rod end is still " round" you can replace the bearing but it could also be the other end of the rod which contains the wristpin connecting to the piston !
