I ran into a curb

I ran into a curb today and bent my front passenger side rim. I've bent rims before so it isn't a big deal but my steering wheel points to the right when I am driving in a straight line. I went by the dealership and the service advisor told me it would cost $40 to diagnose the problem so I left. Does anyone have any thoughts on why my steering wheel points to the right? Does anyone have any recommendations on where to get a new wheel?

Sucks man..tirerack.com sells SVT rims or you can probably have it fix if there is a shop in your area for about $80.

Thanks. They're at Tirerack for $162.29 (shipping included). I spoke to a reliable source and he said that something could be bent or it may just need an alignment. The service advisor said that he was going to charge me for an alignment even though I was just getting it diagnosed so I'm thinking that I'll order the Wheel and take to the dealership for an alignment.

I was driving too fast around a corner. My car took the corner better than I thought it would. The cost for an alignment & remounting was $69.99. The total cost was $232.28. I took it to Pep Boys. They left the SVT thing in my cupholder.
