Patience is a virtue
Whoa, wait a minute. You don't even have the car yet? Get the car and drive it and learn to drive it as it is special. Just remember you can get into trouble quickly with this car due to the power! I think you'll be happy with them. I'm not trying to be a jerk but if you are bending wheels and getting flats either the roads are really bad or you aren't looking out for them and driving over them incorrectly also known as too fast. I have a friend with a Mini Cooper with the same history as yours.
