Bent wheels? - come here

So i'm riding the XX down the street and my neighbor stops me and gives me the 411 that his neighbor has been calling the cops on kids riding their little pocket rockets and stuff up and down the street and just as a warning, he'd let me know. When I got ready to leave, he said the other day when I rode off my right rear wheel was wobbling. Knowing that me and the XX went tumbling a little over a month ago I went home to check it out. This is what I found...

The inside of the right rear had about a 6" flat spot in it!!!!! The left rear was bent on the inside as well! The right rear was bent so much that at full sag, it would rub the A arm. It also looks like something got in the way of the mud scraper as its bent up and theres a huge dent on the inside of the wheel. Now i'm not a genius by any means, but I know how much force it takes to bend a wheel, and I'm pretty certain I haven't done that! So I have NO IDEA how the insides of both rear wheels have gotten out of round! I have taken the wheels off and verified nothing is messed up in the hubs, they're fine, its just the wheels.

I'm not quite sure what to do at the moment, if anyone has some rear wheels (or a full set) that they would like to sell, please let me know.

Here's a video of the action: (This was after we beat the hell out of the inside of the wheel so it wouldn't rub the A arm anymore.)

Dude that sucks..and I was complaining about my outside of the wheels being beat all to pieces.....I dunno what I'd do...probably buy 4 new aftermarket rims or atleast two new back ones....bead-locks would be awesome! Maybe that is why Honda went with the 11 inch rear, that way when you warp the @#($& outta it, it doesn't hit the swing arm! lmao

They are bad. We have 2 700xx's and so far it's been 13 rims altogether. The fronts are bending just from wheelies and go egg shaped after a few. The rears all it takes is not landing flat and they go oblong. Honda won't do anything about it. They say we ride too aggressive.

Wait and see what your fronts look like at 60mph, with the same wobble you have on your rears.

This could be a safety issue could it not be?! I'm scared to look at the fronts now!

If they actually cracked I'd say yes. It's BS though. Honda wants over $400.00 for each rim here in Canada. I've been lucky on finding the 11" rears online.
