I have read many say (including Woody) the problem with the Behr rims is that they are too wide for any off-road tire to protect. Better for the street but obviously not for off road.

Did you bend it along the edge (minor dinging) or did you bend the F outa it? Pics? Bottomed out makes me guess you bent the whole F'er. Some did say they thought that particular model of Behr was too soft. The Excels and Suns have a great reputation; who knows if they are always better than all Behr models.

I thought the Aussie's enjoyed a recall on the Behr's but that might have been a dream I had once or some internet bull. Check with the Aussie 640a riders.
