Re: Buckled Wheel.......
That's the problem with nice stiff alloys and low sidewalls. We didn't have this probelm with steel wheels!
But think yourself lucky. I have quite a few examples of wheels and tyres that survived a sharp pot hole but deformed the chassis (well, enough to require a repair). We go looking after the on board recorder shows it's had an impact.
The councils have a budget for vehicle damage. They'll pay out especially with some photo evidence (even better if you can do 2 shots to show no attempt has been made to repair long term faults)
