There is nothing wrong with you that reincarnation wont cure.

How big are you going?

Usually when you upsize a wheel, to keep same diameter, people put smaller side walls. Small side walls in off road would be more prone to damage. But this very vague

Without knowing the detail of how much you want to upsize and what your sidewall is, hard to say

I have 285s with 75 sidewall, meaning 75% of 285mm is my sidewall, and the wheels are protected very nicely and ride is cushy

I have another vehicle running 285/35/19, if I take that offroad, it will bend and destroy the wheels at the first large “obstacle”

So give us more info please 🙂
