It seems like at least once a year I end up with a bent rim. Before going out of town, I had the wheels balanced and rotated. The currently bent wheel has two bends, and was already repaired twice over the last few years. I've read this is relatively common with Mercedes from mid 2000's-early 2010's. I deliberately avoid recessed manhole covers and potholes to the point of not being able to sit back and relax, but it just happens anyway. Is there any recourse for this? I find it unacceptable that such things would happen on Mercedes.
