Wear your full face shield and Carharrt or equivalent jacket for reshaping. Not a problem if there are no cracks other than the chip. I do realize that there are many with strong risk aversion verging on panic, often without the common sense to back it up. Risk tolerance, after assessing the actual problem and checking as suggested above is something you need to decide. I would personally have no issues reshaping after determining there were no through cracks. Removing the wheel if it’s a cheapie is a very good suggestion though.
