Back when I was using ATV style tires (Maxxis CERROS and Maxxis Bighorns ) I was having problems with a lot of flat tires, cutting tire on rocks and mesquite thorns puncturing tires.
I damaged one of my OMF 15 inch rims when I got a flat. I called OMF and they said they could repair damaged rims. When I got the rim back you could not tell where it was damaged.
I later sent them some 12 inch rims that where cracked from the lug holes to lightning holes on the mounting surface for the rim. They cut out the mounting surface out and left 0.5 inch lip on the rim around the outer diameter of the mounting surface and made a 0.25 inch thick plate with the lug holes that bolts to the 0.5 inch lip on the rim. A friend of mine has been using these 12 inch rims for 2 years with no problems.
OMF does good work. OMF Performance Products | Skid Plates, Beadlocks, Brackets, & Rims (http://www.omfperformance.com/)
Below are pictures of the damaged 15 inch rim

I change to BF Goodrich All-Terain TA tires. I have no flats for 3 years. These tires get much better traction on hard pack ground than ATV style of tires.
