What do you mean by destroy?

rim rash or some scratches?
From what I recall, roads around Harvard Square aren't too bad.

Man, that sux! That's why I won't go any bigger than 17" here in MO/KS..............

I destroyed a 17" 2 weeks ago. We are pot hole and railroad track central here. Local leaders want to give $Millions to the owners of the sports teams (billionaires) to rennovate 2 of the prettiest stadiums around and I say FIX THE DAMN ROADS!

Hope you have better luck in the future!

Harvard Square...

Try Comm ave its abotu the worst it can get. Crossing the T tracks is a death sentance for your rims and bottoming out. Fortunately they are fixing the tracks this week convincing me further to get the 19s.
