Is it losing air at all? I have a small bend in my front rim, but I had someone look at it and they said it's okay. This doesn't look any worse than mine though. May be worth having someone look at it though for piece of mind.

Doesn't look that bad. I wouldn't mess with it; just monitor your air pressure for changes, but it should be fine.

Nah it doesn't seem to be losing air, as long as it's not going to kill me it doesn't bother me but a new rim is like 800 dollars..... also the bend looks like it's more in the lip than the actually rim but I'm no mechanic..... thanks for your posts though, I appreciate it for real

You can have it repaired too for about $100. Having said that I would not bother.

I think Will's Wheel Repair is actually a little less than that! Totally worth fixing.
