Wow, that must have been some pothole. Hope you reported that to the authorities so they can hurry up and not ever fix it.

Ouch. At least insurance will cover something like that. Not really your fault at all.

Those are not the OE rims are they? Judging from the universdal bolt pattern I dont think they are a aleast.

How big was the **** pot hole?

Looks like you might need an alignment after that kind of hit. was that on the front or the rear?

Yeah!! I agree with Sweet Tooth, It's not your fault to damage the rim, you can hold some insurance facility. Potholes are the biggest issue every traveller faces in their pathways. The problems with pothole are increasing day by day, which lead to damage cars, tires and are the reasons for road accidents. If the pothole has been there for long periods, then in this case, the area in charge officer should contact to professional Pothole repair like Asphalt Paving Pasadena MD: - capitalpavingconstruction.com/ from their website and should get a permanent solution over pothole problem.

That better not be an OEM rim. That's ridiculous for it to split like that. I would expect a bend, like a complete split If that is an oem rim I would sue
