My Ride: 2005 BMW 325I
Flat tire

So I get in my car this morning... jump on the highway, cruzin' at 130km and all of a sudden get a wicked shake out of the car... I pull over right away... my rear DS tire is flat.

Filled my tire back up with air ... always packing my air compressor... notice a screw in the tire, very close to the side wall.

Once I had filled my tire with air I started to drive again, and my car is still shaking???

Wondering if I damaged my rim somehow... didn't hit anything??? or is it simply that my sidewall on my tires is wrecked?

riding on 19"s with a 235x35 R19

any insight is much appreciated... thanks

it is probably just the tire tbh.. but the rim is also a possibility. i would just get a new tire and take it from there.
