my damaged Motegi TrakLite rim [xx(] These are forged which is why there are no cracks, just bent. These are hard to come by in this size and 4x108 so was hoping to have it professionally straightened. Just from this pic, any opinions about fixing it [dunno]

Most tire shops farm it out and triple the price. I pay $40-60 per wheel for straightening, tire shops use the same guy and charge $150.

how do i find the actual wheel straightening shop?? Redding is less than 100 thousand and even combined with Chico and suburbs is less than 200K.

That's one of the advantages of forged wheels. Light weight and still strong, but also very ductile. It will bend quite a bit before cracking even when cold (comparably).
