Buboy,

I disagree with you here. 2-piece or 3-piece wheels have a higher tendency of bending b/c they have a lip. 1-piece rims might bend on the inside but 2,3-piece rims bend on the inner and outer lip. Looks very ugly when a visible part of the wheel is bent.

Anyway so far ACS is my 1st choice so I'll keep u guys posted.

: Hey Tommy:

: With 20's, you may run a risk of bending them, but the folks at CEC told me that you should have no bending problems with a multi-piece 19".

: I would worry more about bending a one piece cast alloy than a 2 or 3 piece wheel.

: Think about it, if 3 piece wheels can withstand race conditions, you're telling me that they can't take the potholes of NYC. It's like this dude, if you really want a strong wheel, then you're ONLY option is a Hammann or ACS 3-piece racing wheel!
