    Got a flat on my 08 WRX

    OK i was going to school, and i think i hit a curb while taking a turn, and all of a sudden i hear this sssss noise coming from my tire, then i get out and see to my horror that it was a flat tire. The question is what do i do now, i think the hole is pretty big. I was actually going to my auto tech class when this happened, should i call the Subaru road side assistance, or what?

    You could either call roadside or change it yourself. Make sure your in a safe place to change it.

    ???? i'm assuming you got were you were going? that or your taking the time to post this question on the side of the road? i'd change to the spare and go to a tire shop asap to replace your almost certainly ruined tire. check your wheel too and see if you put a serious dent in it too as it will be out of balance or could even be so severly bent air will leak out between the bead and the lip making the wheel useless too. i doubt that happened though. how had did you hit this thing?

    yeap i only have this car for a year i have been driving it for 3 weeks, and i love it, i have driven many cars, in our family of 3 we have 4 cars, my moms 08 BMW 550i is fun but my WRX is waaaaay better.

    the WRX will be my dads after one year, since i have enlisted in USMC, and my boot date is aug 09, but ill enjoy it.

    ill post some pics of the car with the crappy spare tire if yall wanna laugh at me.

    the only mods i have is tinted windows, 4% in the back 70% in the front. I want to get an SPT exhaust but cant affford it and want some ASA rims, but cant afford it with my ****ty job, the good thing is that my dad agreed to pay for the tire.
