Default Daily driving on SSR competitions

I'm picking up a set of SSR competitions this week because it was a damn good deal. I'd like to daily drive on these in the summer but have read some random hooplah about how they bent/break with a little more ease? Any thoughts?

That's just it, random hooplah. You need not worry.

OK buy Nates beans


do NOT try to 'stretch' any tire on that wheel....THAT is usually what bends them idiots doing idiot things

that and not using enough pressure in the tires.....think never less than 34psi

mine are still straight and true after 7 years and 100k+ miles
