I replaced bridgestones with sumi's (due to a blown rear tire). After leaving the shop that mounted/balanced them, I returned about 4 weeks later with 4 bent rims. No off-roading, just MD/DC driving - same as when I had the bridgestones.

Can't say what caused the bent rims, but they weren't bent when the Bridgestones were on, and they weren't bent when the Sumi's were put on.

I decided to move to 17" wheels for more tire selections. Went with michelin sport a/s plus. I pick up the car tomorrow and will post after I drive it.

Good luck!
