Straighten 356A steel wheel

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Model: 356A; Year: 59; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 1600S; Total Mileage: 145,000;

I bought a used "A" wheel to use as a spare, 4 1/2 inches, painted. The inside rim has a deformed area at the rim O.D. from a hard hit at some time. The bead area side wall is bent outward from the normal position. The bead area diameter is acceptable as is. Other than a mallet, what type of tools do you suggest I use to beat the rim back into decent shape?
