Yeah, but I'm one of those guys where my eyes just go right at it. Like I can't look away. 😂

You can get a mobile wheel repair company to fix that for about $150. They will do a good job. Check with your local dealer, tire shop or used car lot for a recommendation. They all have to get wheels repaired from time to time.

The punishment is inversely proportional to the damage, the smaller the damage is, the more I curse.

The hard part is figuring out where the thresholds are at.

If you total the car, all you can do is laugh and walk away.

If you make a "mark" on it, but you can't swap out the part easily, or it takes $$$, and or down time....


Get the whip.....

Buy a new rim(s), that’s what I did and haven’t gone near any curbs since.

Yup. Also, I make a habit of backing in for fear of wiping out my front splitter, even then I’m cautious not to crush my Trackhawk tips.

This was the drive-thru with curbs on both sides and the sun glaring me in the face.

I’ve never done that but no doubt some of the drive-thru’s really have narrow access with curbs on both sides and a sharp turn or two!

In today's world, with bank lobbies closed, where you must go thru the drive thru, I take truck to bank, or will walk up thru a drive thru. Whoever decided on the drive thru width aught to be beat half to death.

Ha, Ha, and not funny. Learned very fast with the vettes. Can't sea over the hood uull lums. With the H/C same long hood duool lums. This past take ons was done with a tire and wheel 5 year guarantee and has paid for it self 5 times over. Sounds dumb at the time but after the # of times, worth it.

Buy two dozen curb feelers (at full price), or as an alternate punishment, learn to drive?

Go to the bank, get the cost of the repairs in fives or ones if necessary to punish yourself enough, then go pay the people in cash and count out each bill yourself as your penalty. Charge or cash card is too easy, the consequence is not as apparent.
