Is this a safety hazard?

I will eventually replace them, but I'm getting anxious and want to get 'er back on the road once the bed is replaced, if possible. Does the damage to this wheel look like it could lead to tire damage, or unsafe in any way? I drive 500+ miles a week.

I'm not actually driving it at the moment - it's parked in the driveway - but was hoping to soon. I need to get the bed replaced first and was hoping I wouldn't have to wait until the wheel(s) replaced...

Oh well, thanks.

Why risk it? No one can say for sure if anything will happen, but it's definitely not good.
