Front Shocks Blew OUt

Hey I was driving home and just heard a pop on the passenger side of my car. It sounded like my tire blew out. Got out of my car to see if i had a flat and everything seemed fine. So i drove off and started to notice the front right tire making noise like it was rubbin against my fender. Has anyone experienced the same thing? Im bringing it in to service tomorrow morning?

Before you try to drive it anymore, pop the hood and check the mount and make sure it's still in solid. When you think it's a blown shock and it's really the shock coming out of the mount... things get really ugly.

If you made it home though, it's probably solid.

On the other hand, I've never blown a shock and had the spring compress enough to actually rub. I've never blown a shock without a much harder aftermarket spring either, but good luck.

Doesn't sound like a "blown shock". You can take the shock out and your spring won't compress, nor should you have any rubbing with no shock. Its hard to tell from your description. Shocks and tires don't just "blow out" driving down the road. You heard some kind of poping or explosion kind of sound? Or was it the bottoming out kind of sound (typical on AWD BMWs).
