I hate dc roads.. So f'ing bad. Busted, broken everywhere.
Today it cost me.
Driving to work in the morning, where newyork ave becomes rt50, ofcourse its littered with potholes and this is like a major road..Anyhow i hit it and hear a hissing noise and pull over and sure enough my wheel is bent to shit and my tires sidewall is busted. Thank god, its didnt completely explode and i made me loose control. After carefull backing up on the shoudler i get to an exit. Drive for a bit on the busted tire, luckely i spot an auto part shop and they help me put on a spare.. By the way, i dont carry a spare due to subwoofers taking up the spare tire space. Thankfully, a guy from work drove it down for me.
All in all I hate dc roads. The have already f'ed up my suspension. Not sure whats going on over there but its making a clunking noise over every bumb, I suspect worn out/busted mounts/bushings.

Anyone know where to get a wheel repaired. Only place i know is ye olde wheel shoppe, but thats in elkrigde, (i live in the district). any place closer. Its an enkei 17" rpf1.

Oh, and driving with the spare wheel on the back is funny.

yeah, i called up a friend who had a similar thing happen to his A4. (tranny got shredded).. He tried to get the county (montgomery) to pony up and they denied it. Im not sure if mine was in DC or PG county, either way, im sure im not gonna see a dime..
It just gonna cost me either way so it probably cheaper to fix the rim and buy a new tire.
Damn DC roads....jeez.
