of course that **** happens the day before you roll to SoWo
tire blew out 40 miles away. not sure if i cracked the barrel and it just slowly lost pressure or if the tire just got soo hot that the sidewall split in half...either way the tire split in half..both beads are still on the wheels too.
the barrel cracked in 2 places so i think it happened from the sidewall splitting and the barrel smacking the ground.
after we got the wheel off we had the stock ****ty jack under the car and a big ass truck drove by and the stock jack blew over and knocked the ass end of my car into the guard rail.
not really sure where to go from here..sell my wheels and get bags on the blades or just get the barrel fixed, buy one nankang to put on the blades and just save up and buy 512s..might go with 215/45 512s and hopefully my tires don't rub as much as now.
anyone want pictures? lol
Damn dude that sucks. At least the damage is minor and you werent hurt. Enjoy SOWO, it looks to be another year Im missing out.

This was a weekend from hell. My car has so many new dents scratches and all now its not even funny. Not really sure what im going to do..might just sell my car, sell both wheels and just be done with it all.
On the way home my friend was driving and hit a piece of tire in the road..****ed the front bumper up, broke the fog light completely, lost my grille, and made a dent in the pass side lower door. Prob about 1500$ worth of damage. Don't feel like selling my Gottis just to get my car back to the stage it was at before i went to ****ing SOWO.
As of now i need to buy 1 nankang for the blades, get the wheels welded, new front bumper, new fog, new fog grille, new grille next to fog, need like 4 dents popped out.
Not really sure wtf im going to do..
Damn sounds ****ty. It's probably not as bad as you think. Pics of the cracked barrels? I could probably weld them for you. I know a guy who can straighten it back out too if it's bent. Tires like what? 90 bucks? 85 to straighten, 250ish for paintless dent removal. Fogs and grill is cheap and your bumper can be returned. I bet you can fix it back up for under 1k

Itll all work out man, you know if you sell your car youll regret the hell out of it. Id sell the wheels to fix all of the body damage and run the blades. Maybe have the blades coated a different color to stand out.
I got 99 problems, and my b5 be all of em.
