Saw this at my bmw dealership yesterday.

Poor guy messed up his m3. The other side of the wheel was riding on pure rim. He drove into the bmw dealership like this. Personally I would have called a tow truck...

nope, no runflats. Wonder what caused him to have two rear tire blowouts? It's pretty crazy to drive on them since that's where all the power is being delivered. Must've had wheel insurance

It was just the rear right tire.

ah... I read the "other side of the wheel" as the other side of the car. Still though, no driving on blown out competition wheels thanks.

Haha, that's for sure. you can see the damage already on the wheel well, where the rubber was rubbing.
