Q: Tire turned in

asked by on

I was driving and hit a curb. Now my tire is turned in.

You most likely bent the steering components like the inner tie rods and hub. Other components may have been damaged and would need to be inspected to see what got damaged. I recommend having a mechanic look over your vehicle to determine what repairs are needed.
