Unhappy newbie...tire/wheel help?

Hi,
Not familiar with forums in general and this one in particular, but I AM an owner of a slightly used 2013 elantra limited. Live in the northeast (danbury, ct area) and the recent spate of weather has been rough. Just found out that one of the numerous potholes that I've been somewhat unsuccessfully trying to dodge left some lovely damage on my beloved car. Front tire has 2 sidewall bubbles and a crack in the rim. OUCH!!! Going to need to be replaced and was wondering where you guys might recommend i go for this. Tried ebay and amazon, but have had no luck matching factory tire and rims (continental p21545r17 87h). Was hoping not to order directly from Hyundai as their prices seem pretty high. Any help would be appreciated...

You may want to go through your insurance if you're trying to match factory. You'll have to pay your deductable, but if thats not too high it might be the best route.

Good suggestion.

And if that doesn't pan out, contact a salvage yard about a used wheel.
The new tire doesn't have to match exactly....tread pattern, that is.

If this was me, I would take the opportunity to get a whole new set of better tires and eliminate some of the terrible road noise from OEM tires.
Of course, that's going to be kind of expensive.

Wink Payment Protection

It is not easy paying for your monthly debts especially if you have a lot of credits. You will feel stressed out if you will not be able to pay your debts on time. Any person who has or is going to open a credit card account sometime in the future may get provided payment protection. On the face, it seems like advisable, but actually, it's a shell game that's dangerous for one's wallet. It could cost you a cash advance to pay for the protection plan. It is very important to have an insurance to help you with your future expenses.So avail an insurance plan right away. You will surely feel relieved if you have something to help you with your finances.
