Buckled Wheels

Hey guys. Does anyone know any good ways of getting buckles out of wheels? (Prefrably without dismanteling the wheel. But if it must be done so be it). Cause I have a couple of mountain bike rims and a couple of road bike rims with buckles in them. not really bad but enough to drain half your speed while riding, and I really dont want to pay $50 each for new rims or $80 for new wheels.

you don't have to pay $50 for new rims, you have to pay <$20us for a wheel true, which you can do yourself, but as you didn't seem to know that such a procedure existed perhaps the shop should deal with it.
