Last Time I Use A Car Wash

So today I was lazy and decided to go to a car wash instead of hand washing my car. I went to one of those car washes where it pulls your car through, I was a little worried my rims were going to be too wide for the tracks rails. As I pulled up I asked the guy to see if my rims would fit between the rails and he said I had about an inch from the face of the wheel.

These picture I took after I exit the car wash tell the story...

It put curb race on both driver side rims

all they want is your money......

This happened to several of my friends. The good thing is that it's basically curb rash so it can be fixed to look new easily. The bad news is that...you're from Akron, your Cavs don't have #23 anymore.

LOL just had to throw it in there.

Damn that sucks bro...same thing happened to me. I learned the hard way too. Cost me $200 to repair my wheel because I had to get the lip repaired and re-chromed.
