Even after this, it is still a better option to buy a new rim. I went through someone similar with some old LM reps I had. Most places heat and hammer out the wheel, but only a few shops are capable of doing cold rolling. Contact American Racing for cold rolling repair services.
Thank you for the advice. I'm a sucker for fast solutions and quick results so I just did this. Hope I don't regret it later.
