You have possibly run your tyres at too low pressure..Cure..Wheel alignment and new tyres with plenty tyre pressure... 28/34 front..

Check suspension ball/steering joints as well other wise you are wasting money and dangerous!!!

I assume you mean the wheel rim its self not the tyre?? If so, yes there are places around that can repair the damaged wheel, ofcourse this depends on where you are located and if any wheel shops have the tools.
