Angry falt tire and 60 mph wind.

so the about a week and a half ago i slid on some ice and was heading straight for another car..well i tried to turn and when i caught traction i went up over a curb..which i am very thankful for because the other car had a little girl in the front seat...any way after i hit the curb i pulled over and saw that my camber is off by about 3 degrees and there is a bulge on the side of the tire...no bent rim!!..i new i had to get it fixed soon but i had no money and i wouldn't until after valentines day...so Wednesday night after work i went out to my car got in and started to drive away and i noticed the car felt funny (still in the parking lot) i pulled over and sure enough the pass angers tire was flat...I'm a pretty calm guy so i didn't get upset...I got out the spare tire and jack and that when all the freaking power went out in the parking lot (the wind was ridiculous) so i had to call one of my friends to come over so he could shine his headlights on the car so i could see...so after finally getting the car up (lowered car and flat tire sucks to jack up)...i got the first two lug nuts of with little trouble but that last two were practically welded on..even my friend could get the off and hes a pretty big guy...so after about 20 minutes of that we finally get them off i put the doughnut on and put everything away and the stupid power comes back on...but on the bright side i really like the black on black look with my car..lol..so that was my Wednesday night..it all took about 45 minutes to do.

I've had that happen to me also (minus running a curb). It seems that when one thing goes wrong, everything goes wrong. I noticed that if I ever had a place use air guns to take my wheels off and put them back on that they always used WAY too much torque. I always took them off and set them correctly afterwards.
