Q: My friend went over a curb, how damaging is this to the car?

asked by on January 25, 2016

When parallel parking my friend drove onto the curb, is this bad for the wheels or suspension?

Running into or on curbs can never be a good thing. If you feel that the wheel or suspension was damaged in any way then I would recommend you having it inspected by a mechanic to ensure your safety.
