Bent lip

Got some free rims today and this one has a little damage on it but still holds air. Is there anyway to fix it or would it just make it weaker if fixed

Another bent lip thread?!?! Lol, I'm just breaking your balls.

Have you tried to tap it out yourself? Maybe you can use something curved like a big socket or a ball ping hammer and just gradually tap it. There's a chance that that bent piece of lip might just break off but any rim repair shop will tell you the same thing.
