I've had my 2004 330xi for about a year now, and have already bent 2 rims and had to replace 2 tires simply by driving in and around New York. Does anyone know if there are any problems with the 330xi rims and/or Goodyear 205/50R17 tires?

These are the same rims and tires that came with the car.

this happens. i do not think this is particular to goodyear. supposedly the lower profile tire the more sensitive sidewall to damage, 50 not that low, but...

try running 37psi front and back..., i am runnning 39psi all corners, no damage yet. although this WILL give you uneven and quicker tire wear.
