Only did it once, but it was bad. I was parked at work in the parking garage. I was pretty close to a post that had a wide concrete base. I got in the car to leave, was on the phone and pulled out forgetting how close I was. The concrete base tore the **** out of my 5Zigen Fireballs lol.... luckily 5Zigen actually had a few left in stock (this was like 09 i think) so I was able to get a replacement.

I barely touched a curb in the Fit last spring.

Oh well.

Think I had a minor curb in my F150. Luckily it had a lot of tire so was barely noticeable.

Also got a little scuff on my winter set for the BMW from a pothole or something.

Clearly GDD is full of perfect drivers, should have known

Rockin' that 50 ratio sidewall so we don't trash our clearance (my car) and craigslist (her car) rims. No care if no pretty.

I slid straight into a curb in my old wagon once. Blew the front right. Drove the last block to work anyway. Somehow did not screw up the old 14" acura alloys I had. Does that count?

Its hard to curb my daily with 235/70/16 tires haha sometimes i turn into the drive way too soon and bump up the edge but its all tire.

the last time i curbed wheels, was over 10 years ago but i remember it vividly. They were volk se37k, cut the corner too sharp and hit the rear passenger side. Took a small nick from the rim, and large chunk from the curb.

I'm ultra careful. The last time I curb my 19" (and 45 profile) was a month ago. It even happen to the best of us. Was backing out, and forget I was in the last stall and there's a concrete curb on the side of me. Even with back up camera, I was focus on the back view and lost track of that side against the curb - couldn't see it also.

Back in winter 2014, slid my WRX into a curb on nasty black ice. Since it was my winter set, no huge worries, even if they are Prodrives, so it is some kind of sacrilege to Subaru guys. If it had been my Volks, then I would be pissed. Also bent a control arm, so that was an excuse to get STi type-C aluminum ones.

Don't think I have ever curbed wheels on accident. If I had a rented car I might of not gave a **** and did it but really can't think of anytime
