Seriously, I m a bit worried about that, but I haven't heard anyone here complaining about the AR alloys being too sensitive. With a little care, and luck, I think they will survive.</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Two weeks ago I was driving on the same road I drive everyday and... arriving at a roundabout there was a big pothole that wasn't there the week before (this was monday) and I braked right before but couldn't avoid a big bang... I thought the alloy had been damaged as the bang was really hard. When arriving home I had the good surprise that everything was ok, including the tire, but, seriously, I doubt it would be ok if I had the 17".
Even with the extra care I always have... **** can happens on our moon roads. Btw, I think it was 4 months ago or so, I had a flat tire. Guess why... an insignificant pothole.
I wish you the best Jomor, as you know wink
