yea... just my luck!!

the problem is, the rims are soft, 19" and pretty airy (there's one 5 little spokes) and they are on a runflat, low-pro tire, which is like driving on a hockey puck... the combination of the big rims and shitty low-pros are not suitable for our craptacular GTA roads...

...and no, no... I've HIT potholes, just not any recently... which is really weird. I must have stressed the rim and the thing just gave eventually... regardless of how good I (we) are at slaloming the streets, you just cant avoid them at times... fail.
