I avoid potholes like the plague as well as any other road imperfection that might cause me/my wheels problems, but admittedly I have hit a few road imperfections that were jarring, but I would not expect the rims to have bent so easily if this is what caused it esp since there are no physical signs of impact to the tire or the wheel. I do not live/drive in the city, I'm in suburbia.
I will say Alufelgen stepped up to the plate and swapped out of one of my wheels, so from that standpoint the company backed their product.
Good info -- I was considering them. Glad they replaced your wheels. I would find it a hassle and waste of time to still go through all that trouble in the first place.
