just hit a huge pothole.

and now I feel like the car pulls to the right. Tire didn't get messed up and I don't know about the rim. There was no shimy at 80.
Do u guys think I just need an alignment?

If no shimmy at all and just pulling to the right I would assume just an alignment, also how fast were you going?

I'd get it checked out to make sure your suspension components are good and then get an alignment.

I would have your wheels checked for damage just to be safe. Years back I had 16" wheels on 50 series tires on an Accord, hit a pothole, and both front and rear wheels were bent. Werid thing was that there was no tire damage. Just wheels were bent.

Doesn't sound like you have damage though, because you'd probably have a shimmy at speed. And plus you weren't going that fast. But then again, it wouldn't hurt just to have them checked.

me too,,,

yup i did the same coming from my moms house and heading back to chicago! damnit it sucked! as soon as i hit it, i knew the tire was gone and to confirm that and i let go of the steering wheel and the car pulled to the left The story continues----> Being a new m3 owner (6 days new) and always having a Honda product! I pulled into the gas station to check my wheel/tire. No *damage* to the wheel but the tire was blown. I went into the trunk to get the "spare", opened the flap and was greeted by an air box. I was like WTF is this.... Thinking maybe its under this airbox I continued to search for my spare. Kept looking for some button that may open a compartment like if i had the batmobile LOL I grabbed my manuel and started to seach for "spare tire"...nothing.. WTF WTF,,, I called road side and asked the agent, where is my spare tire? She replied, your car doesnt have a spare..... HAHAH its only 5 below zero and Im only 60 miles from Chicago...... So yeah, that was my intro to the BIMMER world.... Car was towed back to chicago and 3 days later, they told me I needed a new rim as well bent the inside of the wheel! Thank GOD I have wheel protection!

Do yourself a favor and read about the M Mobility System in your owners manual.
