If you're in the UK, go take a photo of the hole (or any hole that looks big enough if the original hole is too far away) and then send the bill for a new rim to the local council.
Dodgy.

waffled on about something:

I did that, they replied and i am just waiting so hopefuly it will go ok, but to the OP take some pics...quick, cos they filled the hole 2 days later where i hit mine...but i had plenty of pics.
But no you cant just hit it back, a garage heated mine, then bent it out, but they warned me it could crack and it did....

thanks all. found a place that uses a machine to fix it. thats right it cant be banged out.
how long did it take to crack ? my bend wasnt that deep, even if it cracks it wont be deep enough to affect the tire
