Honda tech says vibration in steering wheel and generally unsmooth ride is due to 3 bent rims. I drive 40k miles a year on bad roads and hit potholes every other week, so I don't doubt him. OEM rims are over $200 apiece. I see rims on TireRack for about $100 apiece.
My question is are $100 rims just as stable/reliable/safe as $200 rims?
My original rims are alloy so I understand I should stick with alloy and I understand I need to get the same size. I don't care about look, speed, weight, coolness or anything like that. I care about spending as little money as possible to get the vibration out of my steering wheel and get my smooth ride back.
