Question:

what can bent the axle?

I have 205#92;60 r16 on my optima. Stock tires are 205#92;55 r16. 3.2% bigger than Original Diameter. Any chance it can bent the axle?

Answer:

Tires can't bend the axle. You have no axle really, just 4 independent small axles. The 205/60 tires have more tire underneath than the 205/55 tires. The '60' means there's 60% of the width (205mm) as a sidewall, from the ground to the rim instead of just 55%. 60% of 205mm123mm ---more tire under the car 50% of 205mm102mm

If you bent your axle then you hit something REALLY hard If you have a bent axle then you have other bent suspension parts like lower control arm strut tie rods. Kinda hard to bend just an axle.
