The wheel looks fine. I'm guessing they used a block of wood and a hammer to bend it back into shape. I couldn't find any tooling marks on it, and can't find where it was bent. Not sure what the price on a new one would've been. No idea on cost savings as I haven't looked up the price of a wheel/tire combo, and I'm going ahead with the fullsize spare plan anyway (at $150+shipping) When I get the fullsize spare, that previously unbent wheel will go on the front, and the previously bent one will be used as the spare.
