Even my nice aluminum wheels are only $100. I'll keep driving [slow] in order to pull off somewhere. Not going to risk my life, or my family, for a $100 wheel.
In addition, it takes a lot to render a wheel unusable. Driving slow and careful, you can probably make it to the next exit/pull-off before you damage the wheel so much you can't use it. I only say this in case you need to reuse the wheel... until you have time to replace it.
