If you want, I have a rim, and complete front right suspension you can have. The rim has a huge dent just like yours, and the suspension parts will make your car drive in circles just like yours. But you can have em'.
I was unlucky enough to hit a cinder block that someone left in the middle of the road. I blew up the tire and almost drove into oncoming cars.
^haha nah I got it taken care of.
My car is done and I'm picking it up tomorrow. Total cost was about $730.
Today my brother went around a corner with ice and his back end slid out and his left rear wheel hit a curb and went over it. Now when he drives it, it makes a whining noise and its a little bumpy. He has a 2007 honda accord btw. Any ideas on whats wrong?
Yeah definitely get it checked out, the wheel assembly could be very loose now. If you had to drive it, i could go very slow in low traffic areas.

There's some suspension damage there that will probably require some parts to be replaced. Expect around $400.

Alright thanks ill let my bro know.
The wheel is resting on bearings and pressed races for those bearings. When a large impact occurs, the bearing can crash the race and get substantial damage. This is often times what happens in a situation like that. Also, the seals that hold the grease often get damaged. Sometimes the alignment of the wheel in relation to the breaks can be compromised. And that is if there is no suspension or bend axle problems. A quick check out would be a good thing. I have seen bearings come apart later on and create things like wheels falling off or locking up completely. Just check it out before something really bad happens.
I hit a curb pretty bad when it snowed 9 years ago in my BMW, I bent the wheel into a football shape and the squeeling noise was the inside wheel rubbing on the brake caliper bracket. Good luck. Try putting the spair on and seeing if that maybe fixes the problem
