Hit pothole. Flat tire. Need advice.

Travelling on a highway at about 55-60mph, I hit a very large and very deep pot hole.

The front left tire deflated slowly as the car steered itself to the left so I pulled over to a nearby parking lot. The extent of the damage is largely unknown. There is no visual damage to the rim, no cracks, and the tire has no cut or protrusion. This is a Continental DWS (not run-flat). Luckily my brother came and swapped in my winter tire.

My question: do you think the tire is repairable without buying a new one? I'm sure the rim is bent, and needs repair, but I hope the tire can be saved.
