Default Wheel Straightening

Anyone ever had a wheel straightened? Dented a rim on the Passat on Monday and would like to get it sorted, have given it a fair few whacks with a dead blow mallet but can't make it any better.

Be very careful whacking alloy as it has a tendancy to crack. Its not like steel.

48 inclusive, thankfully it still ran true and wasn't buckled. I phoned VW for a laugh, 386 a wheel!!!!! That was trade from TPS and not from the dealer. Could be worse, apparently the 18"+ Audi wheels start around the 800 Mark.
