So I'm still trying to clear up the tickets I got back in October (Dec 15th I get to go talk to the Bexar County District Attorney). Currently Bexar County wants about 1500 bucks from me...

thursday morning I woke up to a flat tire...left rear had a 1x2" piece of metal stuck through the tread, couldn't be patched...so i bought a new tire and added roadside hazard warranty to all 4, total was 235.

Today I picked up a friend and was coming down 281 back into San Antonio in the rain, doing 75mph, and at the last second I saw this mammoth pothole. I tried to lightly swerve so I wouldn't lose control...too late. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad






So I put the spare on the back wheel, put the back wheel on the front and took her back home (about 15 miles) then turned around and drove back to my house, 36 miles. Crying or Very sad

I'll be putting the steelies back on for a while, I hope I can find a 20" Chrome JH8 to replace this one... Confused

Ouch man. That sucks. Situations like this are why I plan on getting at least 1 spare wheel whenever I finally find some wheels I like (and are in stock when I have the cash to buy them).

My friend had big chrome wheels on his Malibu, he hit a pothole on the highway and cracked both drivers side rims. Right after he paid $200 for a new tire that someone slit.

I'm staying away from any rims bigger than 18" for that reason of the potholes in Michigan.

wow man that sucks, I hope you find a replacement wheel for a good price soon. And as IffyG said you might get a spare wheel, just in case.

Well the 2 problems with getting a spare wheel are that the wheel is hard to find and that I have no where to put a spare wheel. I have my steelies at my brothers house in Austin (about a 2 hour drive) because I don't have a garage here at my parents house. And these wheels don't fit in my trunk because of the sub box

LOL!!

Yeah, I drove on it for about 5 miles because when I stopped at first I sat there for 10 minutes and it didn't lose any air. So I went to where I was going (very slowly) and when I got there you could hear air hissing out...lol

The whole trip up to her house (20 minutes) and the 1 hr 20 minutes back to my house, I could hear the air hissing out in the back seat lol
