I wouldn't worry about the scratches, it's the cracking. There is no accurate "test" to see how wheels fare with real-world potholes.

I didn't know that I figured they must be uncrackable. I was just thinking it would suck to get these bad boys scratched or curbed for cosmetic reasons.

I'd actually think that considering they are much heavier than i expected they should be bomb proof.

well considering that Michelin specs on their Pilot Supersports 295/30/19 say a weight of 28lbs a tire it's safe to say without tire.

i knew my old 295/30/19 tires were heavy, just not that heavy.
