What do I do with my old rims?

I have some 17" momo x1's that came on my car. One is bent. What do I do with the rims? It will cost $300 to replace the bent one in chrome. I'm thinking that I can replace it in silver for $200, and no one will notice. But then again, I don't want to roll around on 17's. The wheels added 2,000 to the car when I bought it, so I'm really torn about parting with them. What do you think? I can't see saving them for another car. Chances are that 17's will be too small for anything coming out in the future. Also, if I am going to replace it, I need to do it now. The wheels are next to impossible to find.

1 rim/tire cheaper than 4 rims/tires;

get the 1, drive it around... save money to be able to wait for the upgrade to whatever you want.

Oh, I've been on 18's for a few years. These 17's have been taking up space. I can't sell a set with a bent rim. I'm thinking instead of the $300 replacement, I can buy a couple of 19's.

Just wondering, "someone" has been complaining about my junk in the garage. You know how it is.
