Dug the rocks out of my tires from my crazy spinout, all I did was jack up the car until the tire still touched the ground so it wouldnt spin at all, let out about 25 pounds of air and took a small flat tip screw driver and popped each stone out one at a time, worked perfect. pumped the tire back up and let the car down and it looks like nothing ever happened.. that made me feel good about myself. Then straightened out the black plastic the tow truck driver destroyed towing me out still looks like crap I might just take it off of there.. Also found some new rust holes inside my trunk on that right side wheel well which i cant patch up. Decently productive day I guess overall.

when I had my new shocks and struts put on my car did the same thing, your tires will scream around corners and it will cause bad wear if you dont get it taken care of right away. but it is driveable
