an impact with a pothole or obstruction occurs, at which point I would check for damaged suspension components as @Feathermerchant mentioned and I would also check the runout both laterally and longitudally on the inboard and outboard wheel bead surfaces.
Florida also has nice roads. It’s almost impossible to avoid potholes where I live. https://www.mlive.com/lansing-news/index.ssf/2015/07/michigan_city_roads_rank_among.html
I agree that components might, frequently, need to be replaced.

Yup, yup. Currently in The People’s Republik of Merryland with cluster bomb shelled roads that will positively not support 21s on an S nor 20s (has even less sidewall than the S 21s #ridiculous) on a M3 long-term.

Just had tire rotation done at Tesla Rockville Service Center recently. My tires were at 50 psi after the service. I'm not sure about the reason why they chose the max tire pressure. Maybe the mechanic is a racer? :)
That is a bit much! I find that to be a harsher ride. I would lower them to 42 when they are cold.
