Thanks guys...I'm glad to say the only problem seems to be that trim under the bumper. She still drives in a strait line, brakes fine, trans shifts fine, starts fine etc, and there is no body damage. I just went out and bought 4 new tires (the other 3 aren't any better then the one that blew) so I should have it back late this afternoon. Cost $87.99/tire CDN on sale for 225 60R16'*. I had to tap into my savings so I have to pay that back now.

The trim is pretty messed up, pics will come when I get it back. I should be able to bend the foglights back right, and I should be able to get the orange blinker cover at the wrecker/on ebay. That peice of trim (if I can't get it back in shape) I guess I will have to try and find one, but it will be pretty hard. I'm hoping I can make it looks semi-decent without replacing it.

The Bonneville is a real trooper.

Someone actually had something like that out for awhile a few years back. They sold a special 2-piece rim that took two narrow motorcycle sized tires, it looked exactly like a dually setup, except very low profile(rims for our car would have to be 18" or larger to keep the sidwall flex on the narrow tires down), and with the proper offset built in. I don't know if they ever sold any, but it was a neat idea.
Some is also working on bring out a tire with no sidewalls. It uses a spoke-like suspension system intead of air pressure to hold the tire up. It even fits a normal wheel.

Glad you're OK, Cap'n.
