Crap, i hit a curb today and my rim is bent, but is not hissing or anything, seems like it is holding air for now. Damn snow causing me to hit it.

just be happy you didnt do this








That was 10-15mph so I would definitely recommend you get it checked out for bent stuff. my wheel came out mostly okay for how much everything else was bent up





if its holding air the wheel should be fine.



for the record i was not driving when that happened, and snow had nothing to do with it.

trust me man...bent rims suck!

my old set of rims i slid and hit a curb...the rim was bent beyond repair and i lucked out i guess becuase the rim was discontinued about a month before i bent mine so i couldn't find another one :(

HAHAHAHAHA so much for your Tiger Paw Tourings being rated well for snow
like i said the snow had NOTHING to do with it

my wife drove straight into a 10" tall curb not paying attention

and theyre Winterforce tires, I have yet to slide or get stuck in anything, even one time i tried driving into a 2 foot drift and drove out


way to be an ass [poke]

I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to the OP who personally brought out a verbal attack when I told him that Uniroyal tires were complete crap.

It is more like the curb was hidden IN the snow, after my wheels locked up

Update: Alignment needs to be done, New rim will be ordered ASAP via Ebay. Think the bent one could serve a new life as a spare tire?
