Kelvin,

You might as well at least try to plead your case to city hall. You might not be the only one.
When I lived in delta, I lived down a street that didn't have sidewalks. Where the road and grass/gravel met, a pot hole appeared after one winter. When I was driving by, a kid ran out of his drive way onto the street so I swerved to the right. My whole wheel went into the hole and I cracked part of the bumper. I went to city hall and when they saw my car, they said since it's lowered more than an average car I'm not covered and they won't pay for the damages. A week after that, they paved the hole.

@hchang... Good one!! *thumbsup*

Thanks for all the kind words and support, appreciating every bit of advice given. I figure I will let city hall know of this idiotic design, but I will not pursue compensation from the city. I fully understand had I looked more closely at the intersection(instead of the motorbike coming by) and if I didnt have such a bitch of a car the damage probably wouldn't of been as severe.

But like I said, I will let city hall know of this situation, hoping to prevent anyone else from repeating the same mishap as me.

I got a BBK in the front so no spare or steelie, I think it might be crazy dangerous and low too if I used anything but a 17.

The spare on a 6 speed tl is a 17 to clear the brembos. I think it is the same bolt pattern too. 5x 114.3, maybe a different offset though.

Could you have moved a wheel from the back and put your spare on the rear?

Shit. I was there today too and was gonna pull over infront of the place. Curb scared the shit out of me, but I luckily dodged it.

Best of luck repairing your car. Remember seeing this at the spring meet and i was over how sick it looked

Thanks for the spare ideas. I'll look into that but I have a plan for now. Hopefully by tomorrow I will be notified if the wheel is repairable or not. It looks so unhealthy for the car to sit gangster sideways lol

Hey Kev thanks. The wheels are now awaiting pickup from Nubrite
Haha I asked someone if they knew who you were today but they didn't know. I saw your name on the am kitchen duties or something. I'll be there tomorrow for like a half day before going back to 007. That was a quick repair though...

So apparently it was sent to Panthers instead, they've been working on it for a few hours and it doesnt look good, they decided to give it a deadline till tomorrow noon and I'll know my damage, if it ain't repairable then... time for another set, my 6th...
