    You probably bent one or more suspension components. Without inspecting the damage, it's impossible to say what. At the very least, you moved things around and it'll need a new alignment.

    Take it a little slower when roads are icy. What kind of tires do you have on the car?

    Crashed into the curb on a snowy day...

    So i hit the curb and now my front right tire is rubbing against the back of the wheel well. I did hit it while sliding sidways so i didnt hit the curb going straight. My question is what could possibly be bent/damaged and about how much am I looking at to fix it?
    Also, would it hurt if I drove it short distances?

    You probably bent something in the suspension. The rubbing could wear through the tire and cause a blowout, so driving it any distance could be bad.

    Why are there so many posts lately of people crashing their cars in the snow? SLOW DOWN until you learn how to drive in snow...

    yea i know i was being an idiot doing donuts in a parking lot and it was just dumb. Whenever I drive on the roads I'm really slow and safe but I get stupid when trying to have fun so I'm not going to do that anymore.

    I dunno how accurate this was... But I read somewhere that AWD in snow is a bit more dangerous, because you still lack the handling, but you gain traction faster, so you can get to speed faster, but you still are lacking handling... The south FTW!!! tho i do wish we got some snow...

    ^ makes sense but as long as you know how to drive in the snow it's not really a problem.

    As my father always says: AWD will help you go, but it will do nothing to help you stop

    Anyway, I'm glad you're ok.

    ^ thanks
    I'm having difficulty on deciding where to take my ride in for repairs. I'm sure the dealership will charge A LOT and I don't want to spend my money out the ass for the repairs. Any ideas on where I could take my ride? (I live near the zip code of 84043 in UT.)

    Id rather take it in first and see about how much it will cost because I don't want my rates to rise.
    btw: I do have full coverage

    axels are hard to bend, you probably bent a control arm or the wheel its self. just throw the car on a jack and see if anything is bent on one side and no the other, take a close look.

    Now how did you hit the curb? Did you slam into it completely sideways or did you angle into it? If you ran into it at an angle its possible that side got setback and u probably just need to change ur alignment specs to offset for it...
