Ice caused me to hit a curb

i hit a curb, the tire is sticking out and turned a little bit.the steering wheel is turned when it is suppose to be straight and when i go over bumps the car swerves to the left a little bit.What do you think could be the problem. im going to take it in to the dealer as soon as i get some extra money

Alignment and balance are probably totally off it you hit a curb at speed, the wheel could be dented and out of round.

Dealer or Sears.
I go to Sears for alignment.
Insurance may cover any parts that are broken.
It happens glad to hear you are safe, sorry to hear about the car.

Sounds like something might be bent, tie rod, control arm maybe. Get it checked soon before it ruins that tire. Good luck

IMO do not wait to get it fixed....Either way you will have to get it fixed and driving a car with issues like yours could be dangerous, besides being really annoying...you will be pissed off each time you drive your car til it's fixed....why put yourself through that...Have BMW look at it and give you an estimate.
