So I Hit a Pothole...

I hit a pot hole tonight which i wouldnt normally worry but it was right at the bottom of one of the pavement bumps they have when they are repaving roads. so when i got home i noticed that both my left steel wheels had a bend in em i was wondering if it was part of just the lip and the bead wasnt broken could i just bend it back myself or do i need a new wheel? The front needs to be replaced i just done wanna buy 2 new wheels if i dont have too.

If its just the lip, yes, you can hammer it back in to place. If tire doesn't shake your good. When have a chance to check it on a balancer, do so to see if you will need to replace them.
