    Didn't make it to work. Tire and wheel are dead. Suspension mounts were busted. Many $$bucks to fix everything. And I'm back onto my all-seasons with a freeze expected after today's rain.

    Pot chasm more like it.

    In the middle of the road. Tow truck driver told me his company had about 40-50 calls yesterday over the stretch of road I hit, and they probably got 25% or less of the total calls. And more than that today.

    We had a rapid thaw followed by flooding rains, washed out some loose sections of the roads.

    Mini Cooper.

    That was a winter run flat. Right now I'm looking at the wheel and 4 tires. Possibly 4 wheels since these are out of production.

    I was planning on going to 17" for my summer set, but now I have 7 16" and my "good" set is only 3.

    I'm mostly just pissed I'm out the money, and this is probably going to end up being closer to 2 grand all-said. All because of a bad road I took because I was late for work and the surface streets tend to be a little faster than the freeway at 7am.

    I dont know how it works up there but the State is responsible for damages to a vehicle caused by bad road condition. Document it with pics of the car and the road, then file a claim with repair bills.

    +1 on that one.....also call the insurance company quick. I know as an example here if a dump truck has rocks falling off and it hits your windshield, insurance covers that by me. Rather than hit the dealer for a windshield that costs almost 2k to replace....FREE.
