Depends on how bad it's bent, but anywhere from $75 to $125.00.

Let me drag up an old thread here, I hit a of a pothole this morning and bent the lip on both wheels. I don't think the rear is salvageable but there are plenty of used ones around. The front I can't seem to find used and they are about 700 new. The front doesn't look too bad and still holds air. Patrick, is this something you guys do or do you just know someone that does it?

just keep in mind once they reheat the wheel to fix it, the wheel itself became softer, it will have less chance to crack but easier to be bent

The place I use does not use heat.
Bring it by and I can give you my best opinion if it's repairable.

good post I have an extra one that has a very minor almost not noticeable bend. And I didn't have any idea that they could straighten them out. Maybe I should have it checked out before I get it powder coated.
