Major puncture minor rim damage - Suggestions?
Monday evening I hit something going over the Longfellow bridge that put a half inch tear through the stock rear tire and tube on my new swift. The tire is shot. While slowing down the rim received minor dings to the top edge of one side of the rim (sorry for lack of pictures). The damage does not extend across the thickness of the rim lip.
Question: if the dings do not have rough/sharp edges, does the continued use of the rim pose a risk to the replacement tire?
