Depending upon street parking space and traffic behaviors one must get close to curb unless the loss of mirror or a side swipe is not a concern. And yess driver inattention is a cause. The low profile wheels attract curbs. FYI: Murphy's Law says that after one boasts of how well they drive an epiphany occurs. My you remain ignorant.
Ignorant, eh? . . . . you may have defined one of my best features 🤣
When you drive a vehicle with lowered suspension, you quickly learn to be keenly aware of driveway angles and speed bumps. Adapt, or suffer more scars.
When driving a motorcycle you quickly learn to be keenly aware of other drivers' lack of vision and attention. Adapt, or suffer more scars.
When driving a vehicle with short sidewalls you quickly learn to . . . . . . . . . . Adapt, or suffer more scars?.
I agree that installing 20's with 45-series profile tires on the Passport is a poor decision by Honda; however by doing so it requires greater attentiveness by the driver to avoid rubbing against curbs . . . . . and if that were to happen, I won't blame the curb, the rim, the tire or Honda for that new scar.
I would consider it an epiphany about my parking & driving skills.
louierg, I never once boasted of my driving or parking skills . . . but I do adapt
