I have seen before/after photos of wheels - crunched wheels - mangled 
wheels - which have been repaired which I would have absolutely sworn were 
unrepairable.  Don't give up on repairing the damaged wheel just yet.

Try contacting Ye Olde Wheel Shoppe, Glen Bernie, MD, near Baltimore.  It's 
just south of town and close to Rt. 1.  I'm sure you will find them through 
a Google search or through one of the telephone database lookup 
services.  I'd talk to them before I just totally gave up.  Perhaps someone 
from that area might provide a phone number and/or a better address.
