Hit a curb a few years back, blew out my tire. Repair place said rim was bent, but not too bad. Nothing that I can see from looking at it anyway. Been driving on it since then, nothing too noticeable, slight shimmy at higher speeds. Now, it's time to get new tires. Don't want to put a new tire on the bent rim so I get a used rim from an auto parts dealer from same year/make/model. I get this used rim and see a slight bend on the outer lip. Otherwise, besides normal wear the rim looks fine. Again, this is just a slight bend in the lip, hard to notice unless you're really looking. Should this rim be okay for a new tire? Or am I replacing a bent rim with another bent rim? Help would be appreciated! JD

A little dent is acceptable and the tire shop should be able to let you know if it is usable as you would need to balance the tires and this would provide the required answer.

Tire shop can tell you if the wheel is bent bad enough to worry about.
