I'm still smiling about this past weekends show. Had a blast with the caravan of cars, all the Vw people in my circle. Good times.

Yeah I bent my front drivers side rim in 2 places. It's wall art now I think. I have empi drop spindles on the car. (It has a KCW type 1 link pin beam) seems the hole in the spindle is soft, the main pin. I'm going to stock spindles anyways now so it's ok.

Also blew up the wheel bearing too :-# :-#

Expensive weekend for me, but I'm smiling.. Can't cry over spilled milk.

Honestly the wheels are show car shit, they aren't meant to be driven at 80mph with rubber band tires.

Maybe Subaru parts could fix it?

On concrete interstate @ 90mph?

You know there are places that specialize in straitening alloy rims? My wife taco'd a porsche wheel is how I know. I sent the wheel out and it came back looking brand new. A place in Salt lake did it for $50 or something.

I'm gonna look into a few some options on the wheel, if my friends in higher places can pull strings...I'll owe them a dinner or 2! Wink Wink Wink O:)


we were boogying down the highway. No issues with the Subi swap part. I love it.

Very top and bottom of the rim. Kinda weird being 180 degrees apart.

Roll like a Mustang? What, getting sideways while showing off leaving a car show and running into something? (Curb, tree, fence, car or people?) [-(

I'm thinking it was such a big pothole that he bent one side of his rim at the bottom of the hole, and the other side on the edge coming out of the hole. :-k

Yeah, that was my first thought when I saw the pics. Those rubber band tires don't give much cushion/protection. Frown
911 operator: What is your emergency ? Me: Some asshole just pulled out in front of me & totaled my car! 911: Are you injured? Me: No. 911: Is the other driver injured ? Me: Not yet....but you should probably send an ambulance.
