I just got my rims mounted and balanced two days ago, and lastnight I hit a bigass pothole in the center of the road, Boom!flop flop, my front tire blew out, and now my rims bent, I am so pissed, I was only go'n 35mph,
I am going to file a police report today, and try and get the city to pay for this, but I know there probly gunna just dick me around
what should I do, I didn't even have the rims on for a couple of days, the stickers still on the tire? the tire's side wall has a deep gash in it? I can't believe this

Hate to break it to you, but the city wont pay for it, and if they were low profile tires then you cant even take them back and get a replacement. Cus most places dont warranty low profile side walls. Its happened to me many times. Livin in MI you just gotta expect that shit.

You could always just go and sue the city for the cost of repair / replacement of your tire & rim. Then you should also let them know that you would be willing to drop the suit if they just paid for your damages and promised to fix the street within a week or something.

It would cost them more to litigate against you in that lawsuit, then it would be for them to just pay for a new rim & tire and fixing the pothole ;)
