What would you do?

So pulling my //M in the garage from the horrid weather, I inspected the rims and tyers simply because I hit a few ditches(potholes). So I notice a bend in the rim and small bubble in the same area. I go to belle tire to ask how long can I drive in that condition and how dangerous. Guy tells me I'll be on ok for just a short time, WATCH THE BUBBLE. So winter is technically over so they can't order any winter tyres and won't fix the rim they say. This is Michigan and early spring is late winter here because it's so unpredictable. I still have the OEM 19 wheels with a Conti on them not really sure if it's summer or all season as they have been stored at tire shop. I'm worried about traction and the low temps when they get put on. What would you do? It's very cost effective for the OEM to go back on but will safety be a issue?

Put the OEM wheels and tires back on. Drive slower to compensate for the summer compound.

I rolled my ankle, just wondering if I should see a doctor?
