For future reference, should anyone ask, if you hit a curb in your car, there is a chance that you can do a little bit of damage.
That’s right gang, I pulled the king-of-the-idiots stunt today by driving right up and over a curb at a speed faster enough to put me up and over the curb. Now, when that happens many a thing can go wrong with your vehicle. If you have bullet-proof wheels like I do, then the bulk of the bone-jarring force is absorbed into the tires. And, as was my case, it can do bad things. Like split the sidewall.
Luckily, I buy my tires from Discount/America’s Tire with the extra road-side damage warranty. In short, the good lads were able to replace my tire (although, not with the same, but that’s another post) For around $35 (taxes and fees on the tire installed). Not only was it cheap, but they are always nice, usually pretty fast and they run a very clean shop. It’s where I get all my tires and you should too.
