So last night I was coming home from school to work and disaster stuck....
I was behind a bigger chevy truck, and between a guardrail and another car..... well just cruising along and between the tires of the chevy I see a big pile of something in the road.... I had just enough time to grab the wheel tightly and holler "****"..... made an awful slam noise in the back.... car seemed to drive fine and everything so I kept on.... well about 5 miles later I get the "LOW TIRE PRESSURE" warning on the dash.... and about 2 more miles after that (2 miles from the next exit) I hear FAP FAP FAP FAP FAP FAP..... I pulled over and sure enough, tire is toasted.
Good think when I bought the car they didn't have the key for the locking lugs in the car so I needed a tow. Got towed, stayed the night at a hotel, and where it was towed didn't have another 225/40/18 tire so I limped home on the spare. Tire place that actually had that tire in stock said they couldn't do it, the rim was shot (pretty good bend in it). So now I'm looking at $300 to gt the rim fix (I cannot find the rim anywhere online to buy 1 new one) and another ~$250 for a tire ..... so like $550 for a 1 new rim and tire
Go to ebay and get 4 rims and tires for like $1000 shipped..... which is most likely what I'll do, just looking for suggestions on what rims might look nice on the car -- its so hard to picture them on a vehicle .
Here is the current car/rim setup
