I know it is not the worst bent wheel, but the tire is bubbled on the other side.
So, do I definatley need a new tire? And is this un-safe whether I leave the tire on or get a new tire?
Should I get it fixed? If so, where? or do I get a new wheel? or do I leave it and get a new tire and hope it seals?
Thanks

if the bead is not bent as well then you don't need to fix the wehel...but an egg in the tire means get a new tire

usually, if the bead is bent you won't be able to hold pressure in tire or you will have a sloww leak.
