    BMW vs. Truck tire

    Last night I was coming home from my San Antonio office, following an armored truck on I-35. Without warning, one of the truck's rear tires completely detreaded and nailed my car. I immediately pulled over, called BMW Assist to let them know to get an officer out to report the incident, got out and surveyed the damage. BMW Assist operator asked if I was injured, to which I replied, "No." They sent out 2 police cars with lights and sirens blazing, 1 ambulance, and 1 fire truck. See damage pics below.

    Oh, not as bad as I thought. That looks repairable.
