Just found this site...

While looking for a replacement tire for my CLS550. Hit a pothole this morning on Hwy 101 near San Francisco Int. airport,Bang! Ouch!
No use filing a claim with Cal Trans for a bad road/damage as the states broke and they will just round file it.
Good thing I have not yealded to the urge to put nice aftermerket wheels on my car! The factory wheel has a small scuff but anything else would have had to be replaced. Been,there and got the t-shirt for that!

Just found out things are worse than I though. My tire pressure warning light came on After I put the spare on the right front. I figured it was from the flat in the trunk? When I got home I noticed the right rear looked a little low. Checked it and it was down to 26 Lb. Checked the tire over and found a bulge and small split on the Inside-sidewall.
Looks like giving my brother-inlaw a ride to the airport turned into an $800 favor. Maybe next time he ask I'll just hire him a Limo! Could be cheaper?
