PGV Posted March 29, 2006 Share Posted March 29, 2006 I live in upstate New York (about an hour or so north of the city). I have an 06 LGT MT and I really love the car. I went to a concert the other night (Coldplay in Nassau County, Long Island) and did not take my prized new car. Why you ask? It's because I knew that I'd hit some massive pothole and end up denting one, two, three or all four of my rims. I took my beater 1990 CRX Si instead and sure enough I hit some big ass pot holes. It's pretty sad that you'd have to worry about damaging your car driving down in the city or anywhere for that matter. Especially since you have to pay $4.50 each way to cross over into Long Island on the Whitestone bridge. You'd think the roads would be like glass for those kind of tolls. What's my point? I don't really have one other then to complain about the condition of our roads. I'm sure the northeast is not the only place in the country with crappy roads. I'm noticing a bunch of posters on this forum that have dented wheels and bubbled tires. Not sure if there is any solution except to watch out for the big pot holes or get a tire with a bigger sidewall. Be safe out there. By the way....Coldplay puts on one hell of a show!!
