If its the outside part of the rim, best to get a new one. They'll paint them and the paint comes off in less than a year. Also it is extremely difficult to get rid of the pushed down portion....seems to always be there. With the pushed in portion still there, the tire balances but still whobbles on the road. The side-to-side bend is easily straighten, however. Sounds like you have a M contour rim; classic BMW M3 problem with the 45 and 40 size tires. The forged rims seem to hold up better against potholes. In the states, we can get the Contours for $345ea or after markets for $170 ea.
