Tires you can obviously get done anywhere. Go to tireracks website and get a nice pair of pirellis or michelins for less than 800.

The oil filter housing gasket is a doable job if you have the time and the tools. Need to take off the belt tensioner, alternater and power steering reservoir. The part itself is 5 dollars so you can see the cost is all labor.

Not a common problem to have a bent control arm. Did you hit a curb or anything that would make you suspect a problem? Any peculiar tire wear? Seems a little odd.
