Front end

2006 VW Jetta GLI 10000 miles.4 cynlinder.

I recently hit a curb pretty good and busted 2 tires and cracked two rims. After replacing the tires and rims, my front passenger tire is now crooked. The top of the tire leans into the car. I am unable to take the car into the shop for a couple of weeks and am wondering if it is ok to drive short distances. Slowly. If I go over 45mph it pulls real bad and is making horrible noises when I hit speed bumps. Any ideas?

Thnx.

Hey christina
Sounds like ya definitely tweeked something in the front end. I would not recommend driving the vehicle more than 5-10 miles per day as that tire will wear out very, very quickly if you do and avoid highway speeds for the same reason!

Chris

p.S. I also recommend a 4 wheel alignment when you get the repairs done!
