I run 15x7 TSW Hockenheim R rims on my E30, one was bent a few months ago (pothole), I had my winter rims and tires on since then, If I get it fixed, will it be safe on the track for a driving school? No cracks, it is bent at the lip.
I wanted to upgrade to 16", but I still have a very good set of TOYOs to go with the 15".
Thanks.

bent rim may wear out wheel bearings faster is what Ive heard.

It'll only wear out the wheel bearing weird if it can't be balanced.
