unfortunately once a wheel is buckled theres not much you can do, any attempt to reshape to could just weaken the wheel

Yeah that was my thoughts, it's a weak point made yet weaker by further bending the metal.

Sorry to say but you would need to purchase a new alloy.

You wouldnt be able to fix it because your balance would be all over the place, and potentially you could do more damage.
