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
Since I never drew Unemployment, never licked a food stamp, never spent a dollar of welfare, did my time in the military, and voted in every election since I've been old enough....I COMPLETELY REJECT THE PREMISE OF "WHITE PRIVILEGE"
