If you plan on fixing it later, just fix it now.

On the other hand, if you plan on selling the car next year, ride it out but be prepared.

Some are saying that a tool of some sort could have caused this and not some pothole. I'm taking it up with the dealer that sold me the car.

It's definately not from a wheel clamp and the only "tool" that can do that kind of damage might be from a bead breaker. Having said that, the tech had to be a real moron to continue with the breaker on the wheel like that, since it doesn't happen instantaneously.

Still could've come from a pothole though, although the way it's bent does look odd.

My guess is that the dealer will say you've already had it for xxx time and you'll have to deal with it on your own.
