: Rim Repair 2012 6 Series. Am I First???

Friggin Pothole jumped out of the road and bit my driver's side front. Hard! Going bout 90mph. It was such a sick and jarring feeling. So, glad I didn't blow out but I did rash the wheel about an inch.

They checked the integrity of the wheel (I've got the wheel/tire insurance.) It was good.
They fixed it so you can't even see it.

Years ago I had a blow out, again going like 80 and it did all kinds of damage...:dunno::dunno::dunno:

I got a bubble from a pothole on day one of ownership, but if you really want to hide the rash, powder coat those wheels black heh heh heh

Today I knocked the wheel off of a 335i on the wet track. I was pretty impressed with my ability to do such a thing. Luckily a quick call over the radio got me a replacement 335i within 5 min. Sadly it put me out of the race.

Didn't mean to trivialize your thread - just thought I'd share :)
