I have Ronal R-38s in 17x8 et 35 with Nokian NRWs in 225/45/17. My SO
bent one rim. I think they are reasonably strong wheels. I am amazed
that you have bent multiple 16 inchers with 55 series tires; you must
have some bad roads. I bought the Ronals specifically because I
thought they would be strong wheels, and I think they are compared to
many others. The OEM Avus may be a little bit stronger. FWIW, I
think the 35 offset makes the car look great as they seem to fit flush
with the side of the car. And I can't say enough about how much I have
enjoyed the Nokians ( the NRW is now the WR.)
