I have to think something else is up with yours.
I ride the shit out of mine with no problems. ANY rim will bend if you hit a rock or ledge hard enough, with the air down in the tire. That's why I leave mine up the same as road pressure---and I would guess that's why BMW runs full pressure in them on the bikes in their off-road schools. Just my 2 cents
I speak English, and I'm over 60, so I probably don't know what the hell you're talking about
