Alloy wheel repair help needed

Hi, everyone. I'm a new 914 owner from Maumee, Ohio (which is a suburb of Toledo...you know, that suburb of Detroit). I just buought a set of 5.5x15" ATS alloys for my '74 2.0 and wouldn't you know it, 3 of them were in good to great shape, only needing paint. The fourth wheel looks like it was hit by a train! Well, maybe not that terrible, but definitely bent. Can any of you recommend a good source for straightening/truing alloys? Also, any members out there in my area?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Dave

Check the classifieds in Autoweek or any other car mag they always list one or two. Problem is it is often cheaper to buy a new wheel if it is an aftermarket wheel.
