And my tire pretty much immediately blew up. So, now I'm at Les Schwab so they can put another one of their sh---y tires back on. I have been here over 5 times in the 8 months I've had these tires, lame! Does everybody else have trouble with tires frequently?

On the plus side (I guess,) got new brakes and rotors the other day.

No, but I dont frequently run over curbs either. Good luck.

My youngest did the same thing yesterday and bent the rear rim all to hell. It took me over and hour with the sledge to straighten the rim. Re-inflated the tire and took her out for a high speed cruise and she doesn't shake or waddle. Only time will tell if it will hold air. Meanwhile I'll be on the lookout for a 15" 4 lug Cobalt steelie.

Lol! Hey now! I haven't done it before. A nail attacked it the last time ;)

Oooh, that's not good... I am lucky that it didn't bend the rim. I was meeting a guy to sell him my aquarium and luckily he helped me put a spare on immediately.

Yeah curbs and Cobalts don't seem to mix very well.

I thought it was the tires. They are kinda cheap... I was not expecting catching a curb a little would totally rip the thing apart. Oh but it did cause a long dent on the underside too, so that must have been a hardcore curb, lol.

I slammed a curb being an idiot with my 5.0 stang and never blew up a tire. The cheapness of your tires probably doesn't help

^^^^^^This guy right hurr.

I don't understand why people are always hitting curbs. Unless you're driving a 5.0.. Then you should be running into everything. It's the Civic of the domestic muscle car world. lol

300whp and I wasn't ready for it to go sideways like it did. I'll fess up and tell you it was driver inexperience. But I needed to get experience somehow :)

My car was screaming towards it full throttle at roughly five miles an hour, haha! I was just pulling into a spot at the end of the lot at a normal pace, but some lady was in my way so I was paying more attention to her dumb ass, and turned too wide into the spot.

Seriously must have just been a messed up, old curb. Of course I have driven over partial parts of other curbs once in awhile, but I had absolutely no problem whatsoever before...

Les Schwab fixed it for free, but was punctured/ripped in a spot about an inch long. So I guess it didn't really blow up, lol, but was pretty bad
