Breyton Quality?

How are the quality of Breyton wheels? I hear the metal they use is "soft"? I am thinking about 19" Breyton Magic Racing, but am afraid they will bend easily. I do not drive very carefully (as to avoid every bump & pothole).

IMHO, my recommendation for you would be to stay away from any 19 inch wheels regardless of the brand. The larger the wheel you move to, the lower the profile tire you will have to use to maintain the same ride height.

It would be neat for someone to start a poll regarding rim size and damage.

Breytons are fine to ride on but if your rockin 19's you have to drive careful to some degree or its a waste of money for you.

Couldn't agree with you more.

19's are just too much of a big wheel for me specially if the roads are not good from where you are. I had my share of damage wheels. But 19's sure looks very nice on the car.

I forgot where I heard that the Breyton Magic's 19's are easy to bend. Easier than other wheels from Hamann or Hartge. I have 18" Hartge & do not have to worry at all, the wheels are very strong. Do all wheels have the same strength?

There isn't enough of a difference

between the 18 and 19 tire sidewalls, not to get the 19. check out the link:

that's why i went with 19's.
