    If I'm looking at a pothole dent in the rim, it can possibly be saved with some skilled hammer, or bending work. But if the rim is actually out of true beyond rideability, there's not much to do except make a mobile for above baby's crib.

    I see you're on the Island, if you want a shot at saving it, see Will P. at Road Worx in Syosset.
