I hit a freaking POT hole about 4 weeks about…. Dented 2 of my rims on the passenger sided, Anyhow I had them shipped to Montreal where they were able to fix one, but the other one they cracked.. In the long run I' end up replaced one rim (most expensive pot hole I ever hit) I just had my winter tire put on the car the other day and I noticed that when ever I turn left or right the passenger wheel, makes a howling noise, Now when you are driving in a straight line is makes a little howling noise and in turns it sounds like its rubbing or something,. My question is.. Does this sound like I fuwked the bearing or could it be something else ??

Rid`n on Tokicos struts and Eibachs pro sport springs....

your front-end may be out of alignment. look for worn spots on your tires.
now that i think about it , it might not be your alignment (you would feel it pull to one side)
it may be a bearing but i would have to drive it or hear it to tell.

It looks like I knocked a inside pad lose from the caliper and it jiggles around... I´m still to lazy to look as it is waaay to cold.

That´s one bastard of a pothole to crack the rim. I got lucky - I only blew the left front strut. Rather replace a strut (good excuse for an upgrade anyways) than buy a new rim. Sorry dude.

Finally had my wheel bearing replaced $32.00 dollar for the bearing
and $112 labor installed.

All in all ... One freaking Expan$ive pot hole .. $350 dollar for a new rim $85 dollars to Repair one of the bent rims..... any how works out to be $600 dollars in all.

Remember kids stay away from pot holes a extreme SPEED
