Why now.............


I was driving home and the front tire blew up, sounded like a shotgun.

But the thing was i was going round a sharpish corner.....



Can you guess what happened next....

Rearend wanted to go go to the right so i steered left so it spun like mad to the left........ The front wheel got stopped by the curb, but the back got stopped by the wall.........






:( Drove the rest of the way home cursing myself..... :disappointed:

Would that be expensive to fix???

Ouch! mate thats wayy harsh ...gutted for ya

id reckon the minimum is a check of the front suspension by someone who knows what they are looking at or for in terms of any damage and an estimate for body shop work.

i'd hesitate to put this through the insurence as id expect them to go

"ooh expensive sir, we'll write it off sir, and give you a very small amount of money sir...ohh"

put up a picture of the whole side of the car with the damge ...someone on here must be able to help out

That doesnt look too bad to be honest mate. Some one good in a body shop will sort that out for you in no time. Not sure on the wheels, depends if they're buckled or not! Hope you sort it out anyway.

The wheel should be alright as the tyre protected the rim... dont know how..... Need to take it off, can be arsed yet...... Dont care about them anyway.............
Just hope it wont cost loads to fix......

New bodykit been ordered..... so hopefully just a case off pushing back and stick the kit on.... :)

Knight Racer or any body, do you have a ruff estimate on how much it would cost to push back..

Jesus mate, just read this glad you're ok. As to the car, I would say if you can find a good bodyshop that should be do-able. Still as I found out when summat goes wrong, it gives you the excuse to upgrade. What type of body kit are you going for? Hope you manage to get everything sorted. Keep us posted. Good luck with the work fella.
