Potholes Potholes

Hi all,

I was driving my 2000 Accord in Queens NY, going 30 mph local road in a rainy Sunday night and suddenly I hit a pothole going home. The next morning, going to work, my ride feels the bumpy and the steering wheel vibrates. I looked at the rim from the outside, it doesnt look it has a dent. I'll go to the mechanics to check it out if my rims are dented. My rims are 215/50-17.

If my rim was dented, can I get the city to pay for my replacement rims? If not my fault that there was potholes and it's a road hazzard too. What do you guys think? Is it the rims got dented or something else. And can the city pay the replacement rims?

a friend of mine had to have his tire replaced from hitting a pothole on the parkway, he had to pay out of his pocket first, but he was reimbursed by thier insurance co.

If the parts are covered, what about the inspection cost? Do they cover that also?

Oh...Boy, I'm getting worried now.
I pruchase some 18's and I'm ready to buy some tires.
The tires that I want cost $129 a piece. I'm thinking about trying to sell them
and buy 17's instead so I can get a little more side wall.
