I think what he means is that they do not look good.

There would be impact on FE only if you go for wide performance tyres. FE would not be affected with normal radial tyres. Comfort tyres like Michelin XM1 claim to give a better mileage.

Yes, if your rims are bent. Infact you ( and tyre dealer also) will be not able to notice minor waviness or changes in the profile of older rim.This will cause air to escape very frequently.
I had to face this problem for about 33000 kms with my previous set of tubeless (155/70R12 fitted on 53000 km old rims)

Now my zen is running on new rims ( & new set of tyres) for 10000 km.
The tyre air pressure remains mostly unaltered (even after 15-20 days interval between check-ups)

I recommend new steel rims for tubeless, if you want best out of them!
