I have bent 3 OEM rims from my 2007 Focus Seadan SES in about 14 months since I bought brand new! These roads are horrible in Chicago and these people think they can bring the olympics here! Anyways I was wondering if changing tire size might help since I have to replace the tires im about to hit 30k miles on the perellis and snow fall is coming soon! I was thinking of going with 215/50/16 would this help? I want a wider tire so the lip of the rims are better protected? What do you guys suggest? Replacing OEM rims is expensive and the way things are going 3 rims a year is just to much!
