If it's a fairly cheap rim, piss it off and get another one. They're hard to fix and it's not worth the hassle to get the tyre out in 8 mths time and find it flat.

There are some specialised wheel shops around melborne that can reroll the rim to fix your problem,call a couple up to find out prices,shouldn't cost more
than $100, I had some Momo extremes that i sraped bad and they came
back like new.
