There is really no way of knowing how much damage was caused without looking at it. Suggest having it towed to a shop.
Answer #2 | 23/12 2013 03:41
if a wheel damage is seen then its better to contact the service centre or a mechanic immediately. do not try to drive the car with a damaged wheel, u will just increase the repair costs.

$500 if you have $500 deductible collision insurance. If you had to pay for it yourself, worst case, it could be several thousand.
Answer #4 | 23/12 2013 03:46
10 degrees is significant as you mentioned. Telephone a few local garages for advice.

depending on how fast you hit the curb you may have just knocked it out of alignment or you bent a control arm or other components of the steering/suspension system. only way to tell for sure is have it inspected. CAR MAY NOT BE SAFE TO DRIVE.

$200 to $3,000. There's not really much point in wild guesses.

Not possible to tell exactly without seeing, but your diagnosis is probably on the money. Could have bent just a steering arm or track rod, could have bent a wishbone or even a subframe - costs will vary depending on what it is. The car is probably unsafe to drive - it needs to be towed to a repair centre.
