I've had alloy wheels straighten. 100-150 buck or more. Those might be a lot more. They been powder coated black. Mine were polish aluminum. Straighten and polished out. Any auto dealer, can advise you a wheel service. They can even fix the repair, at you home, or work.
We had one damage, just like yours. Went to smart madness, bought a used take off replacement, from them. Same cost.

Slightly bent wheel: advice?
I noticed a slight flaw on one of my rear wheels. No wobble at any speed. I've heard stories about repairing a bent wheel by whacking it back into shape. I am not terribly concerned, as long as it isnt a ticking time bomb of death. I got a spare in the back. I am inclined to just leave it as-is. Any advice out there?
