All those cars were headed this way for the Gold Rush Rally... pretty sweet to see, sorry bout the tire problems.. that sux
I'm an hour outside of Phoenix coming from California
and I hit a patch of pavement that's being repaired the sign
read "bump". NOTHING about the sharp edges!!
While sitting here waiting for the highway patrol; I've seen a new 991 Porsche cabrio, a Maserati cabrio, a Lamborghini muerciliago and a Bugatti Veron drive by..... Nice eye candy
So I waited for a Highway Patrolman to show up. He said "yeah that happens to people with low profile tires. He said that they don't write a report unless it's $1000. He said the wheel looked ok; I told him it was actually slightly bent. He got silent when I told him the wheel cost $900. I should have added that the tire is about 300 to 400. He kept on that the State won't cover it. I was thinking; why is it ok for them to alter the highway and damage my property. As a matter of fact he just got through helping a Mk5 GTI with Huffs that got a flat tire from the same thing. sucks.
Saw a Mclaren too..... Ran into the Bugatti again in Phoenix. It had a Michigan Manufacture plate on it.

I came back from California yesterday afternoon on the I-10 in the Tiguan with its' big fat tires and was glad that I wasn't in something with low-profile tires. Sorry to hear about your misfortune Henry!
This is my worst nightmare right here. No spare in the R32 and I have zigzagged the country a few times and am driving from PHX to the north east in a few weeks. Lots of stretches of road where I have no cell phone signal for miles, driving through the night. How would you even handle a situation like that? Got two flats once rolling over a pot hole that formed under a rail road crossing. Thankfully a cop was along shortly after. ugh. Makes me sick just thinking about it.
