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.)
