Hit a curb. Need advice.

Hey guys,
To say the least I hit a curb today while fooling around and blowing off steam. Passenger left wheel has cut in it and sideskirt is popped out about a inch. Jack point on the rear is almost all shaved off, front passenger rim is scratched. Alignment is completely off. So I limped it to NTB on Spring Creek and Coit. So I need some advice:

Has anyone gotten these tires?
Sumitomo Tour Plus LSH
Michelin Primacy MXV4
Yoko AS530.

Can I repair/realign the fender myself??

Dude not to upset you anymore but good luck and hopefully wasn't too bad. It happened to me a few weeks ago and to get my car back in alignment I had to replace strut, strut mount, and control arm.

But I used it as a good opportunity to get coilovers instead

Sucks regardless I know how it feels

Thanks for the replies guys. The rims is stock 16. Tire size is 205 55 16. NTB said all four tires are worn to the point of replacement. Damage:
Control Arm bent backwards.
Bent Hub and rotar
Front Strut bent backwards.
$2600 fix.

I guess everything is a learning experience. A very expensive one.

That's a good price, for all of that.
I had the same experience and the dealer replace the control arm and alignment for $600.

Yeah but the FINAL bill was 2.2k and they wheel weights they put on were to big so they kept hitting my caliper. Making a arc scratch all the way around the caliper. Other than that they did a pretty good job. Now I just need to get my fender realigned flush with my door. It got pushed out like an inch during the incident. Don't want a ghetto BMW. Haha
