Bent wheel need advice

Hi all,

Hit a chunk of concrete going 20 mph and it damaged my wheel. I don't see any cracks and not losing any air yet.

They don't make these Enkreuz wheels anymore unfortunately so I can't buy a new wheel.. Think I should send to a repair shop or just deal with it? Also is it dangerous to drive in the current condition?

Appreciate the help, thank you. Please excuse the dirty wheel, I'm giving them a nice wash this weekend.

I would probably get it repaired. I just recently had a small bend repaired on my Style 135s a few months back since my steering was shaking. My place charges more to repair a bend in the outer lip though, so heads up. Im assuming that's common in the industry.

They may have a standard 40 hole bolt pattern since they are custom. You may be able to find a replacement lip if a shop cannot repair it. A Replacement lip shouldn't run you more than 120-150
