F***ing potholes! Help w/ Bent Rim

As you know, we have horrible potholes from the long winter. I've seem to hit everyone of them in the area! Just had my car into the dealer to have my control module replaced and they told me that my left inner part of the rim is bent and my right tire has a bubble in it. I just order the Hankook V12's, but need to get the rim fixed.

Can anyone recommend a reasonable company in the area that can fix bent rims? Thanks in advance.

I had a bent from a major pot hole on 66 near fairfax and honestly bmw of sterling sold me a new one for like 276 so it was just easier to buy a new rim for me. The rim repair service wanted more to fix it.

I wish you would have checked with me! I have an additional front rim that is slightly used in great shape. I'm going to be putting it up for sale soon. At least I see them doing some repaving now.

Excellent results from the Richmond franchisee for these guys: http://www.awrswheelrepair.com/

Straightened a bent rim on the 335 ($125), and refinished a wheel on the Z4MC ($100)--flawless work on both jobs, and my guy picks up and drops off at the house. Anyone have experience with the NoVa franchisee?
