some1 tried to explainn to me why there is an increae probability of bending a rim due to low profile tyres...but i still dont get it??
with a bigger tire, you have more material between the road and your wheel. there is more there that can absorb the bumps and potholes of the roads.
if you hit a really big pothole...
and you had a 50 or 55 series tire, it would absorb all of the bump and the wheel would be fine.
or, if you had a 25 or 30 (lo pro) tire and you hit that same bump, the tire would absorb some of the shock, but the rest would be dispersed onto the wheel, and therfore bend it.
