Dented Wheel...Repair or Replace?

I have small dent on my 17in spoked Honda shadow front wheel (see pics). Do you know anywhere in the Houston area that can fix it?
Thanks, Will

i had them repair an aluminum cast wheel at Rollos Solutions, on Richmond.

i thought it was trash rim but they fixed it for pretty decent price vs buying a new rim.

If it is just the that is bent, place a piece of a 2x4 on it and whack it it with a good sized hammer. If the centerline section is bent, not much to do there. Is it out of true or wobbling you will have to true it by adjusting spokes.

That's a pretty decent dent fr a spoked wheel.
I'd be willing to bet it's pretty out of true.

Thanks for the fast replies!

It is only bent on the ride side and is not true, slight wobble. I'm a broke UH student, so Im trying to find the cheapest way to ride safe lol. I will definitely check those spots out.

My experience with fixing bent rims is that the spot repaired will be soft and much more prone to bending again when it hits another pothole. Never ever have I fixed a bent motorcycle rim (and on a front rim nonetheless), only passenger vehicle wheels.

You can find a cheap replacement in Pasadena... Houston Cycle Salvage on Red Bluff. Talk to Tigger.
