I'd rather save some money and not have to replace it, but it may come to that.
Wouldn't your insurance cover it? My wife jumped a curb crossing 50 from Rossyln to the Iwo Jima memorial and the insurance covered her two bent rims and flat tires. It might be easier to just replace rather than repair, because repairing it might result in a weaker wheel more prone to bending again in the future.
With that said, I saw a mobile wheel repair shop in the metro area where they come to your house or business and repair the wheel on the spot.
