which wheels r better than oem bmw's wheels

I have 18's with rfts... switched to nokian hakapalitas this winter with the same wheels....now putting back the runflats I noticed that one rim was bent
so the Question is about the 18 or 19"wheels that wont bend, (harder wheels)considering lot of rough roads where I live
Thanks

18's are less susceptible to damages because there's more rubber. Quality after market wheels are about the same strength as OEM wheels so it's not to say that stock wheels are simply stronger. All wheels are subjected to road hazards and they will bend or crack if the impact is strong enough. There's just no way around it unfortunately.

+1. There are no wheels that will not bend. More expensive wheels are usually forged, making it lighter and stronger than cast wheels, which are the cheaper ones. However that doesn't mean they will not bend, just a tad bit more unlikely to.
