Front wheel lip bent
I slighty bent my front wheel after hitting a big tree branch who was laying on the road, couldn't dodge it as it was night time with a terrible visibility.
Anyway, I'm torn between 2 solutions :
getting the wheel fixed by a shop (straightened back and repainting it) for $350cad or getting a new one from Triumph for $900cad (ouch)
I'm getting 500 dollars deductible from my insurance, but I wonder if fixing the wheel is a long term risk or not. People told me to get a new one, others told me to ride the bide and not worry about it, others said to fix it at a special shop.
I don't have any air leak.
what do you guys think ?
