Any good refurb place can do it, expect to pay 50-60 per wheel for a decent job.

You could have a wheel repair specialist fix it for you. Shouldn't be too expensive, and some are mobile.

If the wheel isn't completely thrashed by the curb, it probably won't cost you more than about $60 or $70. I'm sure you could find a wheel repair specialist in your area.
