The 17" RS4-style wheels from Audi collection are actually quite soft, they are standard on the '01.5 A4's with sport package, and quite a few people have bend them over potholes. Plus for that price (>$470 USD each you can get way better wheels).
BBS and OZ are generally very high quality wheels, but like you said, very expensive. How about some cheaper replica wheels (RS4, RS4-DTM...)? They look great and much cheaper, and quite strong too. And if you do bend them at least they won't be as $$$ to replace. check out Achtuning (www.achtuning.com) or Hartmann wheels (something like www.hartmannwheels.com).
Lastly, Ronal does make wheels for Audi.
