    997 alignment

    Last weekend I hit a piece of concrete in the road driving my 997 S Fortunately only the right rear tire was involved, however it was bad enough to slice the sidewall of a near new Michelin, also the wheel involved has a very slight scuff mark near the location of the impact.I replaced the tire and was able to polish out most of the mark on the wheel. The wheel ballanced out fine and holds air fine.
    My question is in light of the fact that the impact was quite loud what should I be doing in the way of alignment to the car. It does now drive like nothing happened even at speed. Any recomendations?
    By the way the bottle of goop and air pump included instead of a spare is useless!

    Re: 997 alignment

    Sorry to hear about your incident. I guess I'd have it checked out, if not now, then at the time you get your oil and filter changed. You probably watch closely for tire wear. Also, you might want to call your dealer and find out what an alignment costs. If it's cheaper than a new tire, you may want to get it done.

    Regarding the "goop and pump," I think that it is only meant for temporarily repairing flats that are caused by penetration of the tread. If your description is accurate about the sidewall being damaged, I don't think the goop will ever work to give you temporary use of a tire damaged that way.

    You may get lucky and discover, like I did, that the local VW dealer can do a 997 alignment - for half the price.

    Yes, we need spare tires! How can a company that was prepared enough to win LeMans again and again let us drive around without a spare?
