A wheel or a tire? The wheel should be fine and you should know what'll happen to the tire.

Wheels are good till you smoke a fixed object, then it can be a prob, but you can cook a tyre off a rim with no wheel damage whatsoever

if anything, the tire will blow out or spin on the rim before the wheel is damaged. I dont know how your cush drive like burnouts though.

Pain in the a$$ to clean... speaking from experience.

Riding is a pathway to many abilities, some considered to be unnatural
Always leave 'em wanting more
