I can't picture anyone bending the 'center' of a wheel and not either of the lips - Very strange!

In any case, it would be time to toss that wheel and replace it with a new one

I finally found a smart tire guy who took the tire off and pounded the wheel into a better shape. It's been 6 months and no air leakage!
