Bent alloy wheel repair

Anyone know of anyone in the Albuquerque area that knows what they are doing in repairing a bent alloy wheel. My son's mid 90s rather cool Mustang has Koenig Villains that were exclusively made for Maximum Motorsports, they stopped production on them several years ago. They are silver in color, aluminum alloy, and they are quite rare. He had some tires mounted at the Big O in Los Lunas and they bent the shit out of one of the rims on the backside and now they are refusing to do anything about it. Since these wheels aren't something you see running down the street everyday he needs someone GOOD to fix it.

Thanks.

Go to the area with the most blacks and start looking in the rim shops..When you find a large group of people buying 24s and whatnot the rim shops usually have a place the send the bent ones to..
One of the guys at my job gets his 22" ashanti's fixed and welded all the time.Ive seen my forman get a 20" wheel welded up trued up about ten times before he took them off..As long as its a forged alloy wheel they can fix it.I have yet to be so unlucky as when i drive my van i know its got a 300 dollar tire and 700 dollar wheel at each corner..So i drive accordingly.
There are quite a few around here that do it..You just need a local place.
