so apparently what happened was i ran over 3" tall concrete island in the town my parents live in while i was there for xmas.

it was xmas eve, so they shut all the street lights off becuase everything is closed on xmas. so i drove under part of a mall in town which opens to that little island, which cuts off the left lane (there is no sign or anything other than an arrow painted on the ground, i suppose had the lights been on you could probably see the island). anyway the tunnel was unlit, and so were all the street lights because of the holiday.

so the tire shop today took a closer look at it today when the replacement potenza s001 came. AND... well lets just say this was the worst xmas ever. i bent both rims, and also ruined my other runflat. so they ordered me two new rims, and another tires... total cost $1800!


given all that , and having had anything remotely happen like this before . make you almost want to buy tire and wheel insurance. almost.
