but "will they bend"
due to that lack of rubber

You will bend them when you run low profile tires to compensate and fit in your wheelwells and slam over or into any bump or dip or pot-hole.

Less rubber between the road and it's inconsistancies and your prized Dubbs means less protection and contributes to the wheel bending when hit.

Not to mention the taller final drive and slower off the line acceleration that you I'm sure won't be satisfied with.

Looks are nice and show cars are fun but, Not always fun as a daily driver, Just as driving a Pure Spec Racer daily would become a pain in the a55 after awhile.

I think everyone knows what I'd say,

but, the choice is yours...

Good luck,
