i was going down i-85 to get to greensboro nc because i was late for a meeting. all of the sudden my tire blew out and i was scared as shit hoping that my car would get out of control and hit other car. i was blessed that nothing happened. but do you think i would have to get a new rim because that one was rolling on the asphault at 90 mph i was wondering if i needed to get a new set or just put the old rim back on?

Holy shit that must have been scary as hell. Luckily you didn't get hurt. Anyways it just depends. If the tire completly came off the I'd say yes get a new wheel but if not then Id take it to a wheel specalist and ask them if it's bent or damged.

Good thing you didn't panic.

1) is the wheel still round?
2) Will a new tire mount and balance on it safely?

If you answered yes to both questions, I say keep using it.

i just need a good excuse to put some nice rims on my car.


yeah it was really scarry. funny thing was, i thought back to when my friend was telling me that if a tire were to blow out not to slam on the brakes so i didn't and it worked.


the wheel was not completly off but i would like to get some 16's or 17's on my car so it will handle even better
