Style 162 Wheels Bent

This post goes to people who own Style 162 wheels, or even other OEM "sport" wheels:

My wheels are bent, all 4 of them. I have them balanced regularly but they get out of balance and get bent soon after. I live in Florida where roads are much better and I drive very carefully when it comes to taking care of them. I have non-sport suspension and Michelin PSS's.

For example, I got the rear wheels balanced 3 months/5K miles ago, and they are already out of balance according to the machine.

Are these wheels that delicate? I am trying to decide wether to replace these or get them repaired..

I've had two bent. I had the first repaired, but I've left the second one still bent (it's not affecting balance). And I'm driving around in cratered moonscapes of a road system. Still, there are definitely tougher (and lighter!) aftermarket solutions. Hell, my winter wheels are lighter and stronger.
