Pram - buckled wheel

We have a Phil & Teds sport model pram which is now out of warranty. It's been in the boot of the car the last week in 40+C temperatures. I took it out today and one of the rear wheels has warped! It's unusable. Spoke to P&T and they said it's not a manufacturers fault, the heat has caused it to warp and I will have to buy a new one. Does anyone know if these wheels can be repaired or heat treated and bent back into shape?? It's a bit disappointing that leaving your pram in the car boot in hot weather can result in this kind of damage. I don't suppose I have any recourse though.

Look on ebay, sometimes people sell parts. Try Carlisles in Syd, they repair prams.
Perhaps P and T have a website to order parts from, I know Mountain Buggy do. I can't imagine a wheel will be too expensive.
