So I took a day off of work to go get my spoiler and grill installed from a bodyshop that was painting it. Of all things.. i decided to put my chrome back on since we had bout two weeks of good weather in NYC. I wake up to what... SNOW! I was soo pissed!
To top that all off.. I hit the mother of all pothole cruizin down the Belt Pkwy! That did a double whammie on me... #1 I bubbled my brand new front left tire ! (fu'ck!) #2 It jammed my CD player and now I got no tunes! To top THAT off... The dumba$$es in the bodyshop didnt paint my spoiler or grill yet. So talk about having a bad day and fu'cked up luck. I guess instead of being all decked out for the NY/NJ/CT meet on saturday... I now have a bubbled tire and only FM radio!! Im thinkin of sueing the city for damages to my rim and tires. What a waste of a day

Oh man sorry to hear that. I pick up my car this saturday, and I was so confident about getting the 17 inch wheels...thinking the worst is over..and what happens..SNOW...I was so mad this morning. I hope this is the very last. Just have this bad feeling that we may get dumped on again. As for potholes, I sure don't look foward to them. I will be on the belt mostly and the JACKED up van wyke. So I expect I will eventually end up in the same situation.

Rich-

Me and you had a few words a while back about the Belt. THAT $HIT SUCKS! I have been staying away from it, it's clearly the worst road in America. I went through 6 tires and 3 bent rims this season. I feel for ya bro.

I look at it like this to ease the pain...

We are in NYC and we got the potholes that country w/out potholes?

I think I'll take the potholes.

Don't even bother trying to sue the city man. My front wheel fell in an open man hole some time ago on the Major Deegan and that went no where. Sorry to hear though, hope things turn up for you.

Sorry to hear about that...the roads in North Jersey aren't any better. You can try to file a case against the state, but have your documentation ready! It's an uphill battle, but it can be won...I did it once!!!

My friend put a claim in for a pothole he hit and bent his 18's. He took a pic with the car in the pothole and sent them a bill. It was a goddamn moon crator. You people who live in the south have no idea how lucky you are when it comes to not having potholes!!!
