Rim help (not picking out a style)

Okay..I was just driving down the road, hit a pot hole and now my car is pulling to the left. I looked at my rim (18's) and it has a small crack on the inside of the rim. My tire is kinda, i don't know how to put it, not on the rim all the way. Should i just jack it up and try to get the tire lined up on the rim again? Is it safe to drive on with the small crack in the rim? I'm so mad. Any help is appreciated.

I wish i could get a pic but my digital camera is at my gf's house. Too dark to use the cell phone cam.

The crack is small. It's on the inside of the rim.

Doesnt sound like you should be driving with it if the tire is not completely on the rim. Better safe than dead.

I don't wanna go driving around or anything just like a mile down the road to my local discount tire to get it fixed. I'd rather avoid the tow truck if i can

1 mile isn't too far...you can drive to the tire shop and have them check it out. Just drive like a granny.

I drove home like a granny. I was scared to turn hard. It's not off the rim real bad but theres a spot where it's just not lined up and i don't wanna shred it.

yeah, take it to discount tire quick. The tire could come off the rim altogether.
