Bald tires in Oregon

Okay, It's not a bimmer story. My bud picked me up at the airport, and we are headed straight to the bar. It is raining in Portland, in combination with a set of bald sumitomos and the truck axle under his mustang...
He almost had it corrected, just a little too much. We spun around and hit the curb backwards about 40. It blew the back left tire, as well as totally destroying that rim. Scrapped the front left rim, scratched the bumper (see no-parking sigh) and busted a taillight. Gladly we did not collide with the adjacent horse, which the kind officer informed us cost $500,000. :-)
It was a fun visit. I got to use the public transportation system in Portland, which is quite good.

Wow, you guys owned that no parking sign.

Before you go back to Oregon, or perhaps before you leave, teach your friend to drive.

Glad no one got hurt.
