I was on my way to pick up my brother to go take a tour of the Nissan Assembly plant here in Tennessee ( how ironic that i wrecked my Toyota on way to this place) , well stupid me was behind a bunch of cars on a three lane street .This Chevy Sonoma had stopped to turn left and i was three cars behind him. The other cars in front of me wasnt looking and then at the last minute they all locked up their brakes and all i see is a bunch of car-ass's going up in the air , but they managed to stop without hitting the Sonoma. Well , i started to lock it up but then knew i was going to rear-end them , so i go around them all in the center lane to avoid them (i would have took the sidewalk but their were telephone poles). Well i almost got thru but the Sonoma started to turn left and he struck my passenger side rear wheel with his front bumper ! CRASH! We hit hard! Thank God the only damge i got was a sliced tire and a scratcehd rim! I couldnt beleive that my right side inner axle didnt get bent! Didnt even bend my rim! It tore his entire front bumper off down to the frame! I really thought it was the end to my Taco! But then i get the incident taken care of and then go hunt for a new tire and i coudnt believ it ,,,,,, The damn Toyota dealer here had the cheapest price on BF Goodrich's! i still have stock 16" tires , but they were even cheaper than Walmart!Walmart wanted $124 and Toyota had them for $98. So , bad luck and a little good luck .just thought i'd talk about how good the Taco's are in a traffic crash!.
