Trashed the OEM Steelies!

Hey, I just blew out my two driver side steelies on a waterfilled pothole...Time to cash in on some rims.

I was doing 15 in a parking lot, and hit a pothole that was roughly as big wide, and my car is long. Not to mention about 5 inches deep, the rims didnt stand a chance.

Now time to contact the property owner to get a settlement check!
Will post pics of damage, as soon as I get them out of my phone.

That sucks but then again thats cool cause I bet the OEM wheels from a dealer are up there. Looks like you might come out ahead on this one. Was there any damage to the tires??? Might wanna put those down too.

tires blew on impact, blew the seal on them, no visable damage to the tread itself

the city pays for that here in Toledo, you may have a similar program, you should check
most of the time they pay for aftermarket wheels because they are cheeper than OE wheels... and since you drive an 07, you can bitch up a storm to get what ever you want realy.... well you can here in Toledo

Things in Florida, we dont have state taxes, its all county based tax.
I think I would have heard of some program or something, couldnt hurt to check.

Checked with the realtor of the property, they are getting me the information on the owner and how to contact them.

Finally got those photos in.

Enjoy the inhumanity, Also took photos of the Pothole...the object in the photos is a Bud Select Bottle...About 7inches in length...just to scale the size of the hole. The first couple are of the Front-Drivers side rim, which took a lot more damage than the rear, the rear only took enough beyond repair. The following are of the hole and depth.

That parking lot looks like a Homeland Security Training Ground.
