Tire won't hold air

so i hit a tree with my front tire and now it wont hold air. i can hear the air is leaking out where the tire and rim meet. i guess i busted the bead. is there a way to fix this without taking the tire off the rim? i do kinda need new tires anyway but looking for a quick fix to let me ride this weekend. also should i get new front rims the one is pretty decent shape but the other has two nice dents?

Let all of the air out of the tire,find where the bead isn't fully seated,or against the wheels lip,get any dirt,rocks,grass,trees,bushes,etc. out from between the tire bead,and the rim lip,and then spray a 50/50 dishwashing soap/water mix in there,push the tire away from the rim lip with your hand if needed to get it in there..Reinflate the tire up to whatever the highest bead seating pressure printed on the tires sidewall says(wrapping a tie down strap around the tire usually helps if it is difficult to seat a bead)...
