Yup. I curbed another wheel. This is the third one. Back to the dealer to have his "wheel guy" fix it so it looks like new again. Another $150 bucks down the drain. This car is a money pit!

Trek, the real question is how and why do you keep hitting the curb?

Do you mind me asking what wheel you have? I'm guessing 22" if it's an S?

My 20" Venoms seem well protected by the extra tire rubber but I still get nervous every time I park next to a curb...

Seriously, you have an S, so I assume maybe the 360 degree cameras? When I am uncertain about curbs while parking, I activate the side camera, it points down at the front wheel, easy to get right up next to the concrete without a rub. If you are hitting curbs while cornering, perhaps get a couple of those flags on fiberglass poles and affix them to the corners of the FPace.

I don't believe the car being a money pit is your problem....nuff said...;)

I would have purchases some type of warranty post-buy, especially after the 3rd time. Someone needs to take their drivers test again ;)

Just kidding, I have 20in wheels and went around the corner to quick and the right rear side of the car flew up in the air (a little dramatic) none the less I have a pretty nice scuff mark. Happens to the best of us.

I wasn't parking. I was rac... er, uh driving. I always use the 360 to park. The 22 inch Pirelli P-Zero summer tires that came with the car do have a little rubber overhang to protect the wheels. However, the Continental ExtremeContact All-Seasons still on my car do not have that protection. I"m getting the summers put back on this Friday. I'll get my wheel redone a week from this Thursday. The bad news is the restoration will likely remove the Ceramic Pro from the wheel. Dang Nabbit!

I'm inclined to think the result of hitting a curb at speed would be more dramatic than a scuffed wheel.

Im not sure either, I was driving at like 20 mph so the scuff is pretty evident so maybe thats what he means by rac-er driving..? haha

Sounds to me like you need to take a geezer defensive driving course :)

I have a small scuff on my front right wheel. That's one downside of the 22s, the curbs are all much taller than the sidewall. :( And everywhere I drive there are curbs looking to jump out and bite the wheel.

You live in TX where there are no curbs. ;)

Any time I park in the city it's typically a parallel park where there's a curb you need to try to get close to without hitting.

I live in Austin and there are plenty of curbs, not sure what part of Texas you've been to that has no curbs, but it wouldn't matter; one curb or many, if you don't know where your car is in relation to the curb you need more practice.
