I bought the wheels used ~8 years ago, had to road force balance to get them drivable, then do a side to side swap during install on X to find the "best" direction of rotation. They were tweaked before I got them.

ARS did a spin balance (no road force) post repair, the wheels are vibration free at speeds over 100mph now.

I would bet NYC has a few good wheel repair shops, I'm surprised you aren't on a first name basis with a few, driving a 2.5 ton vehicle on 20s with small sidewall tires in NY.
Letís just say Iíve been pulled over a few times for looking like I was driving drunk. I was literally avoiding potholes Officer.

Yea I am going to call a few shops. See what they say. I have never had the wheel bend this way. Usually barrel bends, and those I know can be fixed. This is a bend at the hub. Shit. This one feels like it will sting.
