Hit a pothole a few weeks ago.....well "crater" would more accurately describe what this friggin thing was. Going prob, ehh 25-30 ish, was gonna park at Circuit City (closeout sale ftw) about 1 min away when it happened. pulled in the spot and noticed my steering felt mushy. Looked at the front right tire and of course, an un-fixable 1" gash in the sidewall of my 16 week old michelin x-ice. lovely. Ended up getting 4 new general exclaim's (it was about time for it anyway) and keeping the 3 winter tires

I hit a hole on i95 going about 85mph!. KABOOOOI! She drove like a champ considering, I thought I was going to loose control and start tumbleing but she drove nice and straight, pulled over and fixed it.

Next time was also on 95, going about 75, rear tire blew out, I heard it and pulled over just as it went flat. Did not have a spare that time and called geico for a tow to the shop.

2 weeks ago I hit a solid concrete block on Rt 88. Tried to miss it and kissed the edge with the tire sidewall. Gave me a big bulge. Must have broke a belt. Did not gash the outside of the tire or lose air. Made a hell of a shake though. Put my summer tires on the next morning. New snows next year...

while going about 60, i got cut off by a silver jetta on soldiers' field road and instead of letting her hit me, i tried to squeeze past, kissed the curb, slashed the LF tire's sidewall pretty good, but it held air, and slashed the LR tire wide open.

she got a bit loose going over the bridge, but i was able to drive into the boathouse parking lot and change over to the spare.

then i got new Eagle F1 GS-D3's!
