Shopping List for my BMX

So I recently decided to pull my old bike out of the garage after a few years of non-use. It is a '99 Redline RL380. So far, I've replaced the rear tire with an Animal GLH. The rear rim (Sun zx25) is bent (is fixing it an option?), it needs a better front tire (I'll probably get another Animal), new handle grips, and I want to add a set of brakes to the front wheel (probably a cheap caliper set). In all, I'm looking to spend about $80-100. Any advice on what to get for a new rim, or anything else I should do to make this bike decent? I only do small jumps (2-3 feet) and would like to learn some flatland tricks, so that is the style i want to have this bike geared towards.

grips: odi longnecks
i ride the alenation delinquent but you can pick upp a cheep dubble wall rim for anywhere between $30-$40 thats all you realy need , and if thats a single wall rim that you have on there you might have to get new spokes.
then you ll have a perty good starter set up
oh good job on the tire, im going to get the same one when my odysseys wear out

and are those screw on pegs?

I checked, the rim that's on there is only single walled, so i guess ill need new spokes. Here's the rim I'm looking at based on your suggestion, will it work? The pegs are not threaded, I put the bolt on the inside of the pegs.
Thanks for the replies.
