Re: hey guys i need help !! with my rims

What kinda wheels u got? How'd u bend two of em?


Here's what you do.. FIRST Take pictures of the pot hole and wheels.. email the D.o.t. And let them know it damaged your wheels and you want them to pay for repairs. They will get someone to inspect it and if it's bad enough to where they have to repair the pothole.. They are SUPPOSED to pay you. U better take pics before they go patch it up and will be like what pothole?

We need pics to see how bad it is to determine if u should repair or replace them

I did not know that you could do that. Lima Ohios D.O.T. owes me for 4 new wheels...

Good Luck with that guys, You will be the 20,000,000,000 complaint about bent rims on a pot hole. You'd be better off presenting Medical bills showing how you broke your tailbone in the pothole.

Re: hey guys i need help !! with my rims

^they bought me a new wheel on my 4th gen..

U can't just email them and wait.. U gotta bug the s#it outta of them until they realize ur not going away.. They want u to give up..

I pay taxes.. Taxes are supposed to go towards making and REPAIRING roads.. So the neglected pothole is their fault..

It might depend on the area (street) and city or state but.... I got paid
