getting a double walled rim should fix it lol
in my experience, single walled rims get bent into a shape and are pretty hard to fix

Cut 2 pieces of wood atleast 1in thick to sandwich the rim perfectly without anything hanging off. Clamp it down into a table vice with the rim sandwiched inbetween the pieces of wood. Go around the rim with a torch and then clamp the vice down harder. Torch it a few more times over the course of a few hours and then leave it be for atleast over night. This will probably weaken the rim (it may strengthen it tbh. Idk.)

Or just pick up a cheap double wall like a Nitrous Ring for $20
