So this happened last weekend. Hit a horrible pothole and found a bend in my track wheels:

Fixing the wheel at a repair shop would be easy enough to correct the damage. However, since this set is primarily used for tracking, should I just replace the wheel? Wouldn't want to track a wheel that has had its structural integrity jeopardized. FWIW, it looks like the damage is just on the lip on the rim. The bent wheel holds air just fine (drove on it for 2 days until I swapped them out for the stockers).
