Glad it wasn't worse. I know how you feel...reminds me of when that stupid piece of metal flew into my bumper.



All the more reason to try out a new look

Appreciate that. Ha. Wish I had hit Dave's truck tire thing .. *sigh*. Oh well. See what tomorrow brings ... guess I will 'browse' tire stores.

That sux, Ed! I've always found the best deals on tires at Tire Rack - even with shipping they beat my local dealers by $100 for a set of 4 Kumhos, including installation and alignment at one of their local Preferred Installers which is where I had them shipped direct. Amazing that the splitter looks untouched!

Yeah. I looked. Can get a complete set of Kunho ASX - front and rear, stock size for $449.38 shipped. I got a quote from a guy in Columbia for the Kumho ASX for $282 for fronts and $327 for the rears. This includes tax, balancing, disposal fee, valve stems,
and lifetime service. That totals $609 which is $159 less then the Tire Rack. That's all for the good .. have heard nothing but good about the Tire Rack so far.

Re: Splitter. It came out completly undamaged.

P.S. Well .. had some luck. Bad and Good.
The Bad was that the left front wheel is basically toast and won't hold air overnight. The tire is scored on the inside bad enough that I can see some white threads.
The Good is that a friend has a wheel/tire off of his Z that I can borrow until I can get it replaced. I'm looking but .. I swear .. so far the 'offers' I have got from wrecking yards is on par with some new rims.

I have a poss offer of a set of 19" wheels and tires for $1200. Will check that out Saturday when I go to pick up the loaner wheel and tire ... is from the same person. Maby he will have a beer too .. ha

P.P.S. CRAP!!! I just got back from a beer run .. and the left rear went flat. Pulled the wheel .. and great .. the left rear rim is also damaged. The heck with it tonight. I'm gonna drink beer and watch tv.

Ed, look on the bright side, it's a perfect excuse to get a new set of rims and a new bumper!
