Thanks Ovekvam! So would you say the force it took on this fall over was less than it would get if it was on a car and banged into a kerb? Rekon the tyres will be fine also from having such a force on the sidewalls only?

It just concerned me as these wheels are reasonably heavy when off the vehicle. Im probably worrying about nothing here tho, im just a novice on wheel damage thats all: and was soo annoyed at myself when it happened !!
