the best part about having black wheels - a sharpie pen will cure what ails you

(curbed the front right w/in 2 weeks of getting the new wheels - @#$#@ spacers haha)

i am so meticulous with my car and i got curb rash on one of my rims. i still to this day can't believe i let that happen. was at a stop sign in a shopping center and took a right and the damn curb was way to high or close w/e you want to call it and it gave me a little rash. it's inevitable even for the careful drivers.

I have had 4 separate wheels curbed by car wash tracks (with the attendant driving of course). I will never bring a car with low profile tires to a car wash with tracks again.... I can't think of a time that I have personally curbed a wheel. It will probably happen today because I said that.

My only curb rashn the M3 was getting run into a low curb by a Prius that changed lanes nearly right into me (decided better the wheel than the driver's door), but I have managed to curb alloy wheels in the past.

I personally blame it on Kaiser ignoring my 35 degree strabismus when I was a child. Lack of depth perception can be accomodated for longer distances (ie. I can hit a curve ball if I can time the arm), but not closer distances where you are left trying to determine inches from several feet away.

Get a grip It's a car. Inanimate. Made of metal and plastic.
Okay buddy, the human race survives because of people like me. I keep your fuckin lights on and your air clean.
