Dam Potholes

FYI to you people out there thinking about getting 18"s. I was driving home yesterday and hit a damn pothole that went 3 layers deep. Bent the shit out of one of my rim's and slightly bent a 2nd, so I must buy a new one (maybe 2). Watch how low of a profile tire you get on your 18"s or you may end up getting screwed too.

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much damn space!

i bent my stock 16 inch rim on a pothole! i took the opportunity to order the 18s i wanted but ill be more careful now. im still waiting on them to come in. but no matter how careful you are, its still hard to avoid them. discount tire offeres a warrenty on all their tires so if something happens, they will replace it. im not sure if it goes for the rims or not but since the tires support the rims, they should replace it. ill be sure to get that when i get my new wheels.
