    Unhappy Ouch!

    I have a 2006 DTS, which now has about 300 miles on it. I had the misfortune of hitting a decent sized pothole tonight with the left front tire.

    It made an awful sound, but when I pulled over and checked the tire and rim, they looked fine. You can see where the sidewall was scuffed, but there is no bubble in the tire or mark on the rim. The car appears to drive straight and does not pull or vibrate.

    I know there are Cadillac enthusiasts and techs that read this forum - anything I should be worried about? There are no warning lights on the dash, and the tire pressure in the left front stayed at 31 lbs.

    Thanks in advance - I love the car, but NYC roads are chewing it up already.

    :-(

    A sidewall scuff is usually harmless. As long as you dont have a leaky rim, you'll be fine.

    so far, so good. The tire is doing fine - I think the steering wheel is slightly off center now, but I will get an alignment with my first oil change in a few months.

    If your wheel is off center, I'd get an alignment ASAP! There could be a suspension part bent, and you could wear that tire out real quick, or worse.
