With those air pressure the rims should have held up. Try to pick a better line threw the rocks.

I had a 04 KTM 950 and a lot of people bent rims. I instaled stifer springs and fixed the forks almost right away. I sold it with 35K on it and never had any bent rims.

But I lowered the air one time on my 800 and glanced off a rock and have a dent like yours. But I don,t go lower anymore ( 23 PSI ) and haven,t gotten any new dents. Never got a dent on the rear.

But I might put on a new wheel for a summer trip . (TAT )

Now that you have the wheels off is a good time to stifen up the springs. !!!
