man that bites, the roads in the UP must not be even as close to as bad as the roads in the mainland MI. Ill tell you what though, Illinois has by far the worst roads ever, especially right now with all the construction, seems like you need an offroad suspension to get around on those roads.

I grew up in Ohio, and I've been all over the country, MI roads are the worst I have ever seen.

Specifically the Detroit metro area is TERRIBLE.

LOL.... it's so true too. I grew up right on the border and we were always back and forth. You can tell when you cross the border with your eyes closed.

Yes. Our roads are awful. It wasn't bad on the stock suspension. It wasn't TOO bad when i had the roush suspension. But i just put my coilovers on, less than 3 days and i find myself weaving through potholes because i dont want my car getting wrecked.

The roads in the UP are pretty good, the roads in the LP, definitely some of the worst in the country especially around Detroit. I have to say most of South Louisiana's roads are just as bad.

Any recomendations for rim repair in the Metro Detroit area? I have one with just a "little" bend and I want to get it fixed before I get new tires.

I am SOO happy about this. I live in flint half the year (Kettering). trying to get most places while avoiding Miller is a pain.

I went to Kettering too. Flint roads suck. I broke a spring on my Escort, but it had 150k miles on it. Going down Chevrolet Ave. before they repaved it was rediculous.
