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.

Okay buddy, the human race survives because of people like me. I keep your fuckin lights on and your air clean.
