You're better off checking local junk yards for used wheels. Some have their inventories online, others you'd have to call.

I would never try repairing bent rims...you're only asking for trouble (and very rapid tire wear).

That must've been some pothole!!

eBay and Craig's list are always a possibility.

You don't say where you are or what year, car or what rims you need. Sometimes when forum members upgrade, they sell the OE wheels so you might check out all the forums too.

I have one very mildly bent wheel that should be an easy fix. No refinish or painting required and the inner lip was not affected either. But when checking wheel repair shops they quoted me $130-$140/wheel. My rims were only a little under $200 ea. new. Since its not causing any problems I decided to leave well enough alone for now.
