How to hit 2 potholes in 4 sec. video!

Yesterday evening i was driving thru the BQE in New York, im not familir with this Highway.
I was driving then suddenly i hear this freaking noise, i didn't even have time to

Look at the video! at the begging i added a map, with the exact location
These bad boys are located by the exit 21 on the BQE!

I hit a pothole a couple of months ago... luckily it didn't damage the rim/tire but it threw my alignment off. After getting the alignment done, everything is good.

Sorry dude, if it's too costly to repair, you can always use your insurance. It will fall under comprehensive.

That is so normal for the BQE all the way up to the Kosciuszko. On the Ed Koch bridge during morning rush hour they turn the Queens bound outer roadway into Manhattan bound. They cut up some huge square chunks of road for what reason why I don't know.

I hit a nasty pothole going interstate speeds in central Wisconsin that actually blew the sidewall on the front driver's side tire. The wheel was bent, but was fortunately repairable. I was able to limp to the nearest gas station about a mile away. My car had to be towed quite a distance.

It was a runflat tire, so it wasn't cheap to replace, but I do think it helped keep things stable at those speeds with the sudden loss of pressure.

Glad you're okay though! That kinda stuff always sucks

This is precisely why I bought rim and tire coverage upon the purchase of my car.

Exact reason I got the rim and tire protection package. Not 2 weeks into me having the car I blew out a tire and bent a rim on the Northern Sate. Shit sucks.

Contemplating getting a 2013 FX2. for all the terrible roads, and bad winters. I will still keep my E90. I get so angry when I hit one of those infamous NYC potholes.
