Ya i dont want that, i saw how much is sucked for you and how easy it happend, i will see if i can maybe get a tire with a slightly stiffer side wall (maybe a runflat?) and they will also have to have the curb protector (extra rubber sticking out to help agains curb rash)

keep in mind that these cars usually read about 1mph or 2mph FAST anyway. Both my cars read 75 when it is 73 . verified with a GPS. HUD was only 1mph faster.

Well if u were reading the topic (j/k) we were discussing tire sizes on "18'* and know that either peter needs to go w/a harder sidewall or taller sidewall so when he hits a "car sized pothole" above doen't happen to his!!
