rim bent a little, bad to leave it alone?

my rear passenger side rim has a bend on the inside lip from a pothole... It looks like the tire pushed the energy outward and slightly bent the outter lip which is barely noticible. There are no bends on the inside of the wheel at all, and the tire isn't losing any air. Would it cause any damage if I decided to leave it alone? So far, I've had no vibrations at speed up to 90mph...

Just wanted some input.

Also, the guy at sears auto center checked it out when I had an alignment done and he said the worst thing that could happen is that it isn't balanced 100% and might vibrate, but it doesn't so there doesn't seem like any reason to spend $125 to have the rim heated up and repaired.

Ok here are the pics





























the red lines match up to about where the bends are... as you can see, nothing in there is affected by it

if ur car dosent vibrate leave it alone. worst case is it vibrates a lil at high speeds or might have a small leak.

iv had a 1/2" crack and 2 bends in 2 of my front rims on my last car. it vibrated a lil but nothing too noticable. but the 1/2 inch cracks made it leak air on bot my rims. i filled it 3 times a day for a month with a portable air pump until i got sick of doing that n bought rays wheels lol.

I'm **** and would replace the rim.
