    Unhappy bent 2 of my van wheels tonight!!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    driving home in my van tonight and hit a HUGE pothole, pulled over straight away an got out to hear my front passenger side tyre hissing.

    had to get my mate out of bed to give me a 40mile round trip back to mines to get spare to change.
    so changed the front 2 then checked pressure to notice the back passenger had gone down too, so swapped that with front drivers wheel.

    both wheels have quite big dents on the inner rim

    am now running two speedline alessio's on the front with the 18's on the back.

    can i claim money/new alloys from the council for this, im sure ive heard of being able to get compensation for damage caused by potholes..

    bit pissed off the wheels are only a couple of months old


    think im going to go and buy 18" compomotive MO6's for it now.

    what profile were u running? 215/35's ? Cos these are killers for 18s which Ive found out myself after just a few months.
    I'm not so sure how u would stand with the council issue but it may be worth a stab. Good luck if u do go ahead and let us know how u go on.

    get photos of the pothole, it's location and the damage then put in a claim.
