Runflat tires are garbage. They ride like crap, they're expensive, and tend to wear extremely fast. Ditch them and move on. :thumbup:

Part # Translation, Please!

I was driving home on my lunch break Tuesday when I turned a curve and happened upon a rather large rock in the road. I could either hit the rock, hit a guardrail, or hit a Suburban head-on. I chose...

That last one was also a TYPO on my part: $23,675 rather than $26,675. I apologize. IF the adjuster shoots you a # that is particularly low, then its time to bring in an attorney. He should also ask...
