Default save your rims!

So while parking I got a little close to the curb and heard the dreaded grinding sound, I heard a similar sound last summer when I scraped one of my low profile tire rims...

Except when I inspected the wheels, I did not see any damage...

Because what I heard was a mud flap scraping, no damage done, yet another reason to install aftermarket flaps!

By the way, where I work the streets are like Brooklyn, narrow with lots of jagged and uneven curbs (due to tree roots pushing them out of the way), so it isn't all that easy to tuck the car up to the curb without risking a little scraping...
