Keep bending my wheels. ASA AR1
 
I have 18 inch ASA AR1 wheels. Staggered. 18 inch.
I keep bending them.
I bent 2 of them about a year ago. Now, I somehow bent the front ones. I have a feeling my back right one is bent too. If that is true, I will have bent 5 wheels since I got them 2 years ago.
The roads here are terrible.

These wheels must be fairly thin. Any suggestions on wheels that won't bend as easily? I don't want to keep throwing money at replacing bent wheels. It costs $150 to get them straightened, and $160 for a new wheel.

Stock ZHP?
Aftermarket CSL wheels?

Go back to Stock 17 inch style 68's?

Drive slower, and swerve around potholes even more than I do now?

I just bought brand new VMR718's for around 1000 bucks. They're CSL reps and they look amazing.
I have stock 68's as well and they don't look half bad for stocks.

VMR Specs:
19x8.5
19x9.5
Offsets are 33 and 35
Tires will be 235/35 all around

Roads are horrible everywhere man, not just where you are lol.

Here's a pic of my wheels.. (they're not on yet).

You could look into BBS LM's as well.
The cheaper the wheel, the more prone you are to having issues with them.
