Ouch!!!!!!!

drivin home last night, and it felt like i hit an anvil doin about 70 on the highway, so i check it out when i get home, all seems fine. I check it again in the morning, still seems fine. It shook a little bit at about 60 on the way to work, so i figure whatever i hit threw off the balance on the tire. Drivin through the back roads lookin for a parkin spot (downtown newport parking sux when you work on the waterfront) the fuckin driver's front tire goes flat.
tried a little fix-a-flat to no avail. Had to change my two front tires (can't just change only one with different rims) at midnight on a hill. Got a nasty dent on the inner lip of the rim, hopefully it can be fixed. Anybody ever fixed a rim so it held air again?

Lip bending, or unbending as it were, is really not worth the money because it can never be perfect back to how it was.

the whole wheel could be out-of-true now. take it someplace that re-trues wheels and have them spin it and evaluate it.:(

It really isn't too too bad, it was barely to the point where it was letting air out, and it didn't let air out if the wheel wa sitting with the dent on the bottom. There's dents like this on two other of the wheels and they're fine, it's just that this one is a slight bit worse. I'll try and post pics soon
