I have not searched for this simply because I don't know what to search for. In fact, I am not sure I know how to describe it either.<p>Many times, when my car goes over a puddle or almost any type of relatively big bump, if I am going fast enough, the impact is quite significant and it feels as if it went as far as hitting the wheel. The first times this happened to me, I actually got out of the car, afraid I had bent the wheel or damaged the tire. Now, I just try and ignore it, but it really bothers me and I can't help but feel I am damaging something.<p>I am assuming that, since this is such a low-profile tire, this is exactly what's happening in these cases: that the wheel is getting impacted as it is very close to the ground.<p>Am I right? And if so, doesn't this damage the wheel and also the tire? Any way to avoid this?<p>By the way, I usually keep my tires inflated at around 40-41 psi.
