I've managed to avoid most of them so far, but some of the potholes around here would swallow some of the low profile tires that some have on their 17" rims. I do drive it almost every day.  I was going to put the OE's back on for the winter, but it caught me by surprise and never stopped. Next year. Wife drives the Impala.

Thanks, they're Firestone Affinity.  My mechanic has a long relationship with that brand.  5k mi. so far, including a trip to Colorado, no problems.  The car does ride somewhat firmer than with the 15" wheels.
