Was going 60-70km/h in bad weather conditions (snow) car hit curb front right tire damaged with axel or suspension damaged in the process. Roughly how much would it cost to fix?

My car has 62000 miles.

Hi there. Prior to knowing what it may cost to repair your vehicle the suspension will need to be fully inspected. Many of the parts may be broken or bent so they will all need to be assessed for safety.
