Bent another wheel C70 2007

Daughter called to tell me she had another flat. Dropped it by the house and sure enough, another bent wheel. Inner edge, barely bent but enough to leak air past the bead.

This is the third one in a year. (One was cracked and bent)

These are the 18" Mirzam wheels and are soft as cheese. Short of running 50psi I don't know what else to do.

Will the 17" wheel fit a C70 that the 18"s were an option for? Will a /45 cross section really make a difference over the /40 that the 18" wheels require?

I'd put steel wheels on this thing if I knew what would fit.

Quite frustrating.

Also looking forward to upper and lower radiator hose replacement and T-belt. T-belt is easy but the upper hose looks to be a PITA with its 4 outlets!

Longing for my old 855T.
