Default Pothole Woes

So I'd like to open this thread with a big thank you to PennDOT and their lovely preservation of Pennsylvanian roads. /rant

Anywho, on my way to work on an exit ramp off 76 towards King of Prissia I hit a massive pothole which among other things blew my front passenger tire which resulted in this:

So since I needed to get towed to work, I had the tow company drop my car off at Sears Auto (trust me, I know). So I happened to have a spare set of tires and had Sears mount and balance them.

I finally got some free time today so I decided to take of the front passenger wheel and inspect for damage and I found this.

Now they were able to mount the tire, although there are a good amount of wheel weights on it and it doesn't seem to be loosing air, but is that safe? My inquiring mind wants to know what NASIOC thinks.

There's places that could possibly straighten that but for the amount it'd cost you'd be better off snagging a junkyard wheel or two. Also looks like your tire was about to go soon anyways.
