I'm still confused about what happened. How did you bend the rims if your tires were fully inflated and you never hit any bumps and you never bottomed out the suspension? There must have been a precipitating event otherwise your bike would have just continued to melt into a puddle on your garage floor, right?

Put a zip tie on your front fork to check for suspension bottoming when you get your tires back. I mean no offense by asking, but are you a very large guy? Something has to explain this. Could the rims have been like that since you picked it up and you never noticed?
