Default Wheel Wooble

I have a jaco foams on my Pro 2 and the rear wheels wooble somewhat. Is this due to hitting the boards sideways?

Are dsh wheels less prone to bending permantly?
Do you guys reccomend stiffer wheels or less stiffer wheels?

Default Wheel Wobble

Super Steve;

Don't take this wrong but, If your hitting the Boards enough to BEND Rims/Wheels, you will BREAK Wheels made out of stiffer materials (I have MUCH experience in this matter)

I actually think that Dish Wheels have less reinforcing ribs on the inside, than most Mesh Wheels and therefore will bend or Break easier if slapped on the boards. A Bent wheel will finish the race. A BROKEN Wheel will not. Something to consider.
