Potholes Suck!

Was trippin' to Sears Saturday (Detailing Day!) to pick up some parts for the Shop-Vac when I hit a bad pothole and cut the side wall on the front right tire! The hit had to cause the tire to roll over on the rim to do it! Stock rims and BF Goodrich rollers. Cost me $125 to replace and the worst is that the old tire didn't even have 5000 miles on it yet! thumbsdown


For some folks, "Gaseous Cranial Explosions" are just a way of life!!

hey, complain to your city hall. if there have been complaint from other people who hit the same pothole its considered the city's fault for not fixing it. you might be able to get compensated. try it. wave
