Look what my dumbass did. Long story, but my E34 is motionless. Needless to say, I need a new wheel.

Naah, stuff a little chewing gum in there and that tire will bead right back up. ;)

Looks like you nailed it pretty good, did you run over an 'island' during a left-hand turn or something?

Slid into a curb (raining) while turning right. Better the curb (island) then the black S600 with AMG package on the other side. The ABS didn't not work, wheels locked up. :confused:

Like DSC, ABS is easy to defeat with weight transfer. Also, ABS doesn't work in very low traction situations. The tires have to have a certain amount of grip before ABS can work.
