Angry Bent Rim [Replacement Choices?]

Hello All.

A bit of background:
I got my PT Cruiser 2003 GT Turbo about 8 months ago as my very first car but sadly I hit a snow bank pretty hard last winter and my rear passenger side rim is completely bent. I took it to my local mech and he said it was behind repairable but to try my luck at his best reference Silver Touch Repair. I went there just last week and sadly they removed the bad rim and tested it and in about 5 minutes told me that it is truly not repairable.

My issue:

I would like to drive back to my hometown in NJ but the drive is around 6 hours from my current location in Rochester, NY. The bent rim makes the car a bit shaky after 50 mphs. Also, because of the odd shape the bent rim is in, it has destroyed my tire's track but all my tires are so worn out as well.

My Question:

Does anyone know what I can do? I am looking to just replace all 4X tires and if it is in the same ball park to replace all the rims as well.

I have tried to check craigslist: rochester, NY jobs, apartments, personals, for sale, services, community, and events with the search "17" 5x100 rim" as well as "5x100 rim"

Why are there two of these posts now?
Don't put off until tomorrow what you might be able to put off indefinitely.

Ignorance can be cured with knowledge, but Stupid is forever.
