Just throw the rim on the rear. You should see my euros, I have like six ounces of weight on one, and in the rear you don't feel a thing. Chicago potholes destroy wheels.

I just bought a set of these for a little more, so I'd say, awesome deal even with bent one.

Then buy a new wheel.

I just had my recently bent SVT wheel straightened today, it wasn't half as bad as your's. VERY noticeable difference driving to the shop vs. driving back.

It wasn't a big vibration like when the balance weights fall off a wheel, more like the difference between driving on a nicely paved road compared to chewed up freeway with bad grooves and a rough surface.

$131 + shipping at Tirerack

It might be hard to find a used single in 6-spoke, but if you are in no big hurry then you may get lucky keeping your eyes open and checking classifieds. Smoking deal on the other 3 wheels though!

What color you going to paint them?

Thats what I was thinking too. "Smoking deal on the other 3 wheels though''. Just buy a new one & use that as a spare only. Thats what I use, just beat out the spare well a little.

Yeah, the shop across the street from where I use to work did all those goofy 24-30'' wheels for cheap. A regular size like that is about 50-65.
