Damn - you have a bent rim and do not know how it happened?
Are you the original owner?
If you are not the original owner than that could explain it.

Bending a rim is something you should be able to account for....either the bike was in an accident or someone was bouncing it around with a tire off.
I cannot imagine how a rim can bend without some serious impact that you would notice....like a low side into a curb, bike falling from a great distance, things like that. Plus your tire would go too. I could be wrong but I cannot think of how you could bend a rim and not notice it and keep the tire in tact.

I agree with Twiggy though - straightening a rim is pain and it is easier to just buy a new one.
