Anyone else having issues bending wheels? I know NYC streets are terrible but this is ridiculous. I'm bending wheels every week. Not on huge potholes either. driving 2021 accord touring. keep my tires at 36PSI. I already had a blow out with a bent wheel twice and 2 bent wheels with one cracked and one bent wheel. Good thing i have tire and wheel warranty, that already paid for itself. But this is crazy!

Unfortunately w/the design of the wheel/tire combo they are susceptible to being bent when hitting pot holes, also easily damaged due to curb rash. 馃槱

Probably the only resolve you have is to go w/a smaller wheel to give you more sidewall on tire to absorb the impact of the potholes... and that may not be a "sure" fix depending on how bad the potholes are.

Like the dood said. Less sidewall from low profile tires is part of the downside. You could also try going up a size. Not sure what's on it but usually but for example let's say it's a 225/40/19 stock. Try looking for a 225/45/19 or 225/50/19. But you 100 peec did the right thing with the wheel tire warranty. Its usually the only add on with it and it usually covers any wheels and tires on the vehicle.
