Advice on slightly bent wheel. Fixed or fine as is?

So I hit a massive pothole and it ruined one of my tires.... I took the wheel off the car and this is what I've found....

On the inside of the wheel, I see that there is a slight visible bend. Its barely visible.

I already ordered the replacement tire but I was wondering if I should have this bend repaired at a specialized shop before mounting the new tires on.

Any advice? I've done some research and its about $100 to repair. These wheels costed me $150 per wheel when new because they are just replicas but this model is discontinued. I would just get a replacement but can't find the same model.

Think of the Childre…
While you get the rim repair, you might want to get a re-alignment as well.

WOULD SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!
