Spun out and hit a curb...

So due to the weather yesterday and all the rain my car spun out at hit a curb )=. Luckily I am okay but my rear left wheel was hit by the curb. I checked out the damage and for some reason that was the only damage I could physically tell. No scratches on the bottom or nothing. I took my car to check the alignment and the only thing out of alignment was the front left side which they said had some toe in but I was really surprised that the alignment on the actually wheel that was hit was fine. I am going to take it to another shop to check alignment for accuracy and see if they notice anything in alignment but what do you guys think I should also check? When driving back I also never noticed my car shifting to the side which I was expecting some. Thanks everyone!

If the alignment checks out and it's just that wheel, you are all set. Time to save up for some aftermarket rims

Ouch that's a nasty curb rash. But yeah, like the poster above me said, if the car doesn't pull to one side on a flat road, and there's no strange "noise" coming from turning or the car moving, you're all good to go.

@kALMIGHTY @suaveflooder Yea I haven't noticed anything different with my car just for the fact that I hit a curb so I'm still trying to figure out if I noticed anything different with my car. Like you guys said though as long as alignment checks out I shouldn't worry about my wheel being bent or anything? Sorry I am particularly new to cars.

watch it for the next couple days and make sure it's holding air. It honestly just looks like nasty curb rash and that's it. You can bend these rims but it would take a pretty damn good hit. You can also take it to a tire shop and they can pull it off and check to make sure it's straight and weighted properly still.

No worries. We were all new to cars at some point.
If your front left has some toe in it, it's probably not because of hitting your rear left on the curb. That toe must have always been there so nothing to worry about other than saving up money for some new sexy wheels!

I'd say not a big deal. Just replace with some after market wheels, or buy used Stock ones from Member Classifieds section. Also as others said, no reason to get second alignment inspection if car drives fine.

Wow...sounds like the tires are giving out early.

But look on the bright side...it gives you an excuse to get new rims and tires !

@N1rve Lol true I mean the tires are still perfectly fine I just hope later on they don't form an air bubble on them with the impact they had.

Sorry to be the [second] jerk, but the weather didn't do shit. You spun out, probably messing around or just driving carelessly.

With that said, I'm glad there is no real damage and that you are alright. Aside from checking the wheel's face, did you check the inside? I'm not sure of how likely this is, but you could also check the studs.
