Hit a curb and damaged my wheels



Made a stupid mistake. Please don't educate me on hitting the gas earlier to drift it through. I know. I just got low at the time. Was not on my A game and let Jesus took the wheel.

I got off the car asap and found out the tire was leaking. I heard the noise. I managed to get home safely with tire pressure dropping from 36 psi to 30. I took off the damaged wheel/tire and put on my OEM one just to make sure I can drive around if needed.

The wheel is cracked and the tire sidewall is damaged. Basically they are done. I need new wheel and tire.

I made the same mistake 4 years ago. Hit both left front an rear wheels, but only curb rush no cracking. They were OEM wheels so maybe higher quality? I ended up doing an alignment. I am not sure if I need one this time.

I was hitting at 45 kph 4 years ago and 25 kph this time, but different impact angle. Really not sure what to do. Help.

Take it to the dealer/bodyshop and have them check the alignment and any suspension damage.

At least it's only a wheel, and not any suspension components. New wheel and tire and you will be good to go!

At least these are aftermarket rims not the OEM rims, +1 for BMW valve stems. We all make mistakes, getting exciting in the snow..

Is the tire is Nokian Hhakkapeliitta R3?

Yes it is Nokian. I didn't get excited. I got low. Some personal things.

$255 is not bad for the wheel but $203 for alignment is kind of steep imho.
