I would say that it is difficult to tell from the photo, but I would imagine that if you have buckled the wheel you will get the tire deflating over time so I would check your pressures and keep an eye on it for the next few days. Another check would be to find some (if you are lucky) smooth flat road and drive along it at a steady speed. If you feel unusual vibration, or get more road noise than normal then I would say you have a problem. Either way if you are uncertain get a garage to have a look, it should give you peace of mind at least.

Why not jack the car up and spin the wheel, that should show if it's true or not.
