Sell it for scrap. It would never be the same if it could be/was repaired.

Bolt it to the outside wall next to the water spigot.
Use it to keep the hose off the ground.
Ta-da!

Does your car have a full size spare? Have it repaired and use it for your spare.
I've had wheels fixed before and they were fine.

Depends on the level of damage. But I would recommend re-purposing it or scrapping it if you are at all unsure.

@jsimsace: Not so. There are specialty firms that can MIG weld, true & balance car & motorcycle wheels. Generally speaking, if it's an Aston Martin or a Bentley, that would be an option as the wheels are so expensive. Most normal cars, though, it's cheaper to scrap it & start over.
But it can be repaired, just not inexpensively.

we used them as charcoal pits for grilling on the beach

Glue sparkly plastic gems to it and sell it on etsy as art.

Or, use it as a hose holder, like the suggestion above.

@gidgaf: That is a great idea-and it's an alloy that's rust-free! If it faces the neighbor's house, hope they're 'car guys'.

Sell for scrap, I had three 17" rims I got $25 each for them at the local scrap yard.
