    Well last week I had a dumbass VW Bug decide to stop in the middle of the interstate and when I came to a complete stop the dump truck behind me could not stop in time. The dump truck caused me to smash in to the bug infront of me. Police said that its the dump trucks fault and I got my insurance coming out tomorrow to look at the damage. No one was injured thank god.

    I was wondering if I should go ahead and put the stock wheels and tires back on since I heard the insurance companys will not pay much for them.

    I'm hoping the truck is not totaled but the bed of the truck actually came up and smashed into the cab. Think that warped the frame which will probably cause it to be totaled.

    If you have the stock wheels and tires I'd swap them out in a heartbeat.

    .
    Swap your wheels out before the insurance looks at it, if they total it, you can put your wheels on the new ride, glad you're ok

    The truck had to be going around 40-50 mph

    And yeah I plan on swapping them out tomorrow before the insurance guy comes out.

    So many accidents recently! Get your self checked out by a doctor too, you don't want to start having pains and discomforts too later on.

    Glad you're okay! These trucks really can take a hit...

    And is that the beetle's windows on the top of your truck? :rofl: your truck took out the beetle's rear end.

    My advise is try to leave wheels on till after insurance gives their 2 cents then take off b/4 they take the taco that way you get the most out of it and still keep your wheels.

    But I've heard that the insurance will not pay for aftermarket things.

    Jesus dude, were you taking a nap? I can't believe you can drive with the seats tilted so far back... Good thing the cop didn't see that... Glad everyone is ok though.

    Well the reason the seats broke is that I'm a big boy so when the truck got slammed I guess I broke the seats lol. It was rough driving back home with no back rest.
