Body Work, Mirrors Swap

So the week started off great, got home from college early for easter weekend to spend with the parents, got to come back to my truck cause she stayed home for a fifth wheel hitch. the hitch was beautiful and the wiring great(friend owns a shop, does great work), and today i was hauling a small 28' bumper pull travel trailer 100 miles, i get it there great, on the way back is when it happens, i blew the back drivers side tire, not too bad right, throw the spare on and cut the losses buy a new tire, but no thats not my luck, when the tire blew the tread peeled off and DESTROYED the wheel well, ripped the rear filler neck off bent the hell out of it, bent the bed up, tore all the new fifth wheel wiring out, absolutely bent everything on the quarter panel, it was awful, day ruined. On the other hand my mirrors, cab lights, and third brake light came in, install soon!

I have full coverage so i'm hoping so, i'm glad i wasn't loaded with the big fifth wheel we just got when it happened, just sucks to see all that damage, and now new tires,
any suggestions on new tires i want an aggresive looking street tire, something that can carry a big load, have a smooth ride and little road noise, the mud terrains are coming off this time

Something like this, not being a collision but a "road hazard" damage, _might_ be covered on your _comprehensive_ coverage. I got hit by a deer in my Saturn years ago, and the comprehensive covered it, which was good, since I didn't have collision.

I need to see the whole truck to determine if I recognize it or not.
