I ran over the curb today while backing up. It was not a very high speed somehow, but unfortunately you can see the damage on the rim. I am enclosing 2 videos + 2 photos. Can anyone tell me what it is? Is that a broken rim? Why does it move away from the rim when you press it?

Punch it up to 49psi
Put a drop of soapy water in that bead area
If theres a crack it will show
Else its the clear coat bubbling/peeling

I don't think your wheel is broken, but that impacted area (rim edge) is probably fractured and will need some significant repair. This will not be the typical cosmetic wheel repair that most people get for their wheel damage. Get a spare wheel/tire on that affected wheel pronto. You will probably experience loss of air pressure easily.
