since that brand is uncommon, your best bet is to have the bend fixed or maybe get 2 different wheels if you don't care that they don't match. Good luck

If you still have your OEM wheels I'd run those for the time being, you'll just have to scour ebay and craigslists adds and hope you get lucky. Either that or find a place that can fix the bend but that might cost more than the wheel itself.

or maybe get 2 different wheels if you don't care that they don't match.
worst advice ever :laugh:

Def go with the repair. Most will cost $100-150 and that isn't a bad solution.

I highly advise against having two different wheels. That's just ghetto.

according to discount tire they can not bend it back because its aluminum. so either i find somewhere to buy one, or i buy 4 cheapie rims

Just google it or yelp it. Then call up the wheel shop and tell them about your situation. Doesn't hurt to ask.

I just finished buying aluminum wheels and the lips were bent and curbed and even had a little chunk missing on the lip. I paid 100 per rim and I'm going to be getting them back tomorrow so I'm pretty sure they can be repaired
