I was driving to the store from my aunts house tonight and having a little cornering fun in the process, and I cut a corner a little tight and their was this pothole on the edge of the road then bang. I took like 2 more corners then notice I was pulling to the right real bad so I pull over and the r/f tire is flat shit, the I drive back the the house and get here to find the r/r tire has lost a ton of air so now I need to pull quite a bit of money out of my ass and buy some wheels and tires this is lame. The wheels that are on the car are cheap borbet 15's with michelin x-ice's on them which is what came on the car when I bought it. Now I'm getting my summer wheels way tooo early as it is the middle of winter here. How's everybody else doing tonight.

P.S. this is after last sunday when my buddy backed into my car ruining the hood and grill. My car is getting all kinds of new treats lately, RS4 grill, cf hood, now wheels and tires

During this raining season, I like to drive over puddles of water on the road and make big splashes. In one parking lot, i got owned because it was a huge ass pothole under that water, I clunked the bottom of my front pretty hard. [down]

on wed. i was driving my a4, lost a little traction on a turn and my front right tire went off the road, and i guess the edge of the pavement was ruff and cut my tire open..

..that night i was driving my new jeep with the hemi, and got another flat

I just drove back to the spot where i bent my wheel(def. 1in. bend in the wheel) and the white line on the edge of the road just disappears into a 6 inch deep hole on the side of the road damn that sucks. I was thinking rs4 reps. you can get them for $136 a wheel at discount tire but I'm gonna go in and try to get a better deal because my shop buy's wheels and tires from them pretty frequently, thanks for chiming in guys at least I'm not the only one with this luck lately

i took my friend up to nova to pick up a new (to him) s4 last sunday. we took it for a test drive and 100 yards into it, he hit a corner pretty fast, on the other side there was a railroad crossing.... before he even fully paid for it he broke off the bottom half of the front bumper.

sounds like most of you need to realize public roads are not race tracks and are not maintained as such. every story in here could have not happened if a little more thought was present.

I just enjoy having 40,000 warranty on my tires. If anything happens, nail, gash, blowout... new tire the same day. Buy damn so i hate pot holes too. Even worse in my GF car

Ya you can't always avoid these things the road I was on is traveled by trucks pretty frequently now days and was made a long long time ago. New pot holes pop up on that road every day its very lame.

That pic posted wouldnt even be described as a pot hole over here, more like a smooth road imperfection
