Hit a curb, wheel now hits fender Sign In

We had 17 degree weather on the beach tonight. Leaving the house I entered the highway from uphill to downhill, left hand turn. Nothing but a sheet of ice so I slid across the road and BAM! Right into the curb across the street.
The right front tire is now grinding against the rear side of the fender. (Like if the wheel was pushed back into the fender.)
Is that what's likely happened? Is this repairable? What do I need to look for tomorrow when examining the damage?
Thank you.
( yes, everyone's okay.)

Yes it's repairable but IDK if just a wheel bent front end damage so need it looked at if towed to a shop now may also need a tire or pair??

This is an accident not normal,

Yes, you have some bent suspension or steering components that have to be examined closely by a professional but short of a bent frame, anything can be repaired.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.
