I've looked up in all the archived posts and such but none of them really addressed my question specifically. A friend of mine had 18" Velox Rims on his Celica and 3 out of 4 rims became bent and ruined just from driving around and i guess hitting the occational pothole and speedbump and such. I'm buying new rims right now but i'm abit timid to get 18"s because of what happened to his. I'm just wondering if that has happened to anyone else, and if i got 17"s do you think the extra tire under there would help prevent that from happening? Thanks I appreciate it!
