You could repair that yourself if you would like. You will need a big heavy rubber mallet or dead blow (rubber). It's best to break the tire bead off of the rim but it can be done without. Take a deep breath and have some water handy as you will give yourself a good workout. I have done this many times in the past with customers who did not want to pay to have a rim fixed at a wheel shop. Those rims are so freakin soft (hence all of the complaints that you hear about never being able to balance a wheel/tire combo or vibrations. One good pothole or something is all it takes) that you can shape them back. to a point. Lay the wheel flat on the ground and stand on the wheel/tire over the bend with your toes pointing towards the center of the rim. Then start whacking away. You want to hit the bottom of the lip. Yeah I know it's a small area to hit with a big hammer. You can do it ! Focus grasshoppa.
Also make sure to mark exactly where that wheel weight is just incase you knock it loose or move it.
