I like to have fun with my car sometimes, and turn dsc stg II off when I feel comfortable taking the back out.

Tonight, as my car was sideways, I felt it keep sliding after I tried to get it straight and feared the worst. Got out and looked and saw my tire was off and rim was exposed. Flat road, no rocks/ dips/ potholes anywhere. No obvious damage from basic inspection but threw on a spare and just parked it at home for the night.

This should not be happening, were my tires installed incorrectly? Have any of you guys had experience with this? I want to do a full inspection by myself tomorrow of the suspension/ shocks and see if I can find anything wrong. No obvious damage and rim was not even bent. Opinions?

No bull$hitting either, I'd just like some advice. TIA :thumbsup:

Here's some advice. Stop driving like an a$$hole. If you do this there is less chance you'll lose another tire in this fashion.

You're <img src='http://forum.E46Fanatics.com/images/smilies/greddy.gif'>

But I know, let me make some of my own decisions bud, thanks.
No, your the g a y one for trying to drift in a little 4 door.

If you want to make your own decisions, then why did you ask us?

:facepalm:


The fact that you asked if your tires should be stretched or not shows how much you know about "drifting"

Good Luck OP, This is going to be a tough thread for you.

Noobs. :facepalm:

Automatic in tiptronic. Gives me like 25 extra horsepower, nbd.
You don't get +25hp for going into manual mode.
Your car is not a Porsche so there fore it does not have tiptronic transmission.
Class of '10
:facepalm:

Not denying that I'm a noob at all. I love having spirited fun, and any advice so that I can continue this safely would be greatly appreciated :)

The inherent problem in drifting with an open differential is that one wheel gets all of the power. You probably literally spun the rim fast enough to unseat the tire. This might because your tire pressure was low or the sidewall of your tire just collapsed because it wasn't designed to handle such high stress at that angle. These cars aren't drift machines, they're best at keeping all 4 wheels going in the right direction when the competition can't.

Thank you, I really appreciate this. Literally checked my tire pressure yesterday and it was at 45 psi. Are LSDs also available for auto's ?

I doubt he was able to spin one wheel fast enough to dis mount it with his open diff 184hp auto. :lmao:

ohhhh man yo what you doin?! hahahaha but no for an LSD you need to get an M 3.62 diff/subframe used and you can pop that in, or get a custom Quaife diff, etc. which u can use your current subframe as far as i know!

edit: but honestly it's not worth it with a 325 :(
