Well I wouldn't be looking for new rim straight away, but I would see if that buckle could be straightened first.

The problem with sealant is that the bead in the tyre might not be seated properly. If it decides to lift out of the rim while you are going at speed.... you get the idea, not a pleasant thought. Also could affect the way the tyre wears if its a bad buckle so might cost you in the long run.

This. A small bend on the outer rim can be repaired but if it's losing air, then time for a new one.

Re: Tyre leakage

Sounds like it’s the bead, break the seal and then refit and refill the tyre, try that first as it may sort it.
