Re: Suspension Woes Redux--> Bent rims, should I migrate to steel ones?

In a message dated 97-06-25 05:41:10 EDT, you write:

<< I have a set of 15" steel wheels from a Corrado G60 snowtire package, 
 With 185/55/15 snows, a couple of them actually bent on some of the 
 harder bumps!
 I'll make this recomendation again and again. I have 16x7.5" ATS type 10 
 wheels with 225/40/16 Dunlop 8000 tires mounted on my VR6 Corrado. I 
 cannot bend these things! I have hit some huge holes, nothing! I've 
 driven rally style over severly potholed dirt roads (50 - 60mph), not 
 even a flinch. THE strongest wheel I've had to date. 

Ok, here is my dumber than dirt question of the day.  How the hell did you
fit 4x100 Corrado rims on a 5x112 Corrado VR6?  And why would you buy 55
series snows?  That would seem to be a little too low profile....counter
productive, if you ask me.  As for me, I stick with my Larger than life
175-80-13's on the GTI during the snow time!
