I figured someone would sneak that in there.

It surprised me though how the wheel that got hit was bent, but the wheel that took most of the car weight, force, and dragged broke off..

We get what we pay for I guess.

I probably would have gone the same way though to be honest. $2000+ for a set of wheels is a lot of money to me. I'm gonna take my cheap ass outside now and clean up my factory wheels.
