Ew, for what it would cost to fix that, i would just buy a brand new one, pay a little more, knowing it's 100% factory and not 95%. . . GL

tires can have 20psi in them and not look 'low'

MOST bent wheels are due to too little pressure in the tire

and if that rim is bent like that, that tire is dead too

Find out the cost of the wheel vs the cost to fix. Usually it would cost about $150 to fix your wheel, now how much would a new one cost?

Figure he might spend $200 for a used one. I would spend $200 on a used rim before spending $150 to repair a rim.

You might try some of the used parts sites on the web, or even eBay.

WTF did you hit to do that?
