Am I more or less likey to bend a 19in rim with a huge lip or a normal lip?

Huge lip = bent
Normal lip = straight

mm first time peepin here....

its hard to say. depends on constructin. 1 piece wheels are a complete cast or forged wheel including the lip. so if thats the case, it is more than likely the force of an impact will be harsh on the lip because the force isnt dissipated. 3 piece wheels aare obviously constructed differently. the rim lips are usually cast where as the centers are forged. this difference in hardness of metal allows better dissipation of force during an impact, thus the softer cast lip will absorb the impact more.

This is just from my understanding of wheel construction and a lil physics. but i could be wrong.
