    MY CONCERN IS THAT IN 2 WEEKS IM DRIVING TO FLORIDA, FROM NEW YORK, AND I DONT WANT TO DAMAGE THE RIMS IF I HIT A POTHOLE OR SOMETHING. I HAD A SET OF 255/35 AND IT LOOKS LIKE IF I HIT A POT HOLE, I WOULD DEFINITLY BEND A RIM.

    well at high speeds(highway) no matter what tire you have on it, your going to bend the rim regardless. gotta pay attention and avoid em
