Carbon Wheel Truing

(closed)
I t-boned a car yesterday going about 25mph as they were making a last second turn on a yellow light. Now my front wheel is bent and wondering if this can be fixed some how. Will the wheel be okay if it can be?

But then again... People have weird ways to expressing how it looks... Take a picture for us to see.

Plus... It's carbon...

I don't think I can really capture what I see through a picture. To better describe it, the wheel wobbles when I spin it. I'm going to take it to a shop today to see if it's something that can be fixed. Really don't want to go the mismatched wheel route.

if its just a light wobble you should be okay. but whoever trues it.. should know when too much tension is applied.. if thats the case.. not safe
