Bent wheels...worth anything?

Late last year, I bought a set of "design 90" wheels to hold my winter tires. Turns out, they range from 'bent' to 'less bent'. Thanks, ebay!

I was wondering if these are worth anything to anyone, or if I should just eat the bill and get them straightened? (Straightening all four is slightly cheaper than buying another used set of wheels, esp. with shipping.)

This begs another question: will I be happy with straightened wheels?

not unless they were straight..

ditch them and buy another set, or just replace the one...you should be able to find some cups with tires for $600 or less
