knackered alloy - replacement?

Just hit one of Dundee Council's very best pot holes and knackered one of my rims (and tyre) Wheel rim seems to have bent out slightly .

Any ideas whether this sort of injury can be repaired? or am I looking at another expensive trip to the dealer

I would say a new wheel is in order.....

This may be a silly question but how about claiming against the council...!?
is it worth asking your insurance company....!?

Re: knackered alloy - replacement?

thanks for the advice. I've contacted the council and taken lots of pictures of the pot hole and surrounding area - fingers crossed this helps in a claim. Meanwhile, off the kwik-fit for a new tyre!!
