    Wheel frame? Do you mean the rim? If so, it can be repaired if the damage is not to extensive.

    Most likely can be fixed then, when spinning it on the bike how much movement do you see side to side? .5 inch.. 6 inches..

    Take it to a shop and see if they can true and dish it.. Also, check the dropouts, you may have the wheel mounted unsquare.
