Here are a few quick facts to consider about new wheels:

— OEM wheels are significantly stronger than most aftermarket products – in terms of long-term pothole resistance as well as the paint finish, etc.

— Much slimmer tire sizes, especially on luxury or sports cars, make even the strongest wheels susceptible to damage on the roads. A bent wheel is the most un-diagnosed car problem, but one that will drive you nuts once it starts making the car glide lump-ily down a smooth road.

— Most aftermarket wheels are designed to be cheap to buy and produce, with perhaps one tenth an OEM forged alloy;s strength.  So there you are, a year later, with another bent pair of rims.
