Replacing Dented SVT Euro Wheel (Sell it?)

Got my tires rotated the other day and had been experiencing a pretty bad vibration around 60-75mph. Hoped it was tires not being balanced but the tech told me the inside of the wheel well was dented. Now the car shakes way worse with the new rotation of the tires :(

So I've bought a new wheel and am not sure what I can do with the old dented one ($150 w/free shipping at Summit). I have no idea yet the extent of the "dent" but is the wheel worth anything for someone to buy and try to fix themselves? Wouldn't mind making at least a few bucks back.

Most wont be interested in the bent rim that will not balance...Used wheels can be found for pretty cheap, generally less than what it would cost to fix a bend (assuming it can be fixed)

You can list it for sale, just be clear to tell everyone what you know about it. I sold a bent 5spoke cheaply to someone who said they could get it fixed (mine was still balanced though.) I have a cracked 5 spoke in my garage that i will eventually make something out of but for now its just collecting dust.

Ok, these replies are what I was expecting. I'll likely just trash it.

At the very least you can scrap it . wouldn't be a bad idea either to get a price on how much it would cost to fix it. spares are always nice to have.

So it turns out the my rims weren't really bent and the problem was my transmission mount and CV Axle's. Realized this AFTER replacing all four of my wheels. Spare me the lectures, I learned my lesson.

But I do now have a whole set of used SVT rims if anyone is interested in talking about buying them. I just took pictures and will post to CL (and the marketplace here too).
