Has anyone here any experience of claiming for damage to car wheels, tyres etc after hitting a pothole in the road. Strumpet managed to hit a pothole yesterday resulting in a ruined tyre and cosmetically damaged alloy wheel. She's been out today to measure and photograph the pothole. Apparently it's about 4' x 2' and 6" deep at its deepest point. It appears that the council / highways dept are already aware as there are paint marks on the road around it. She has spoken to someone at the council today who didn't seem particularly helpful. Send your claim in and at some point we'll forward it to our insurers who at some point will decide whether to pay out or not. Not verbatim as I didn't witness the conversation. Any advice gratefully accepted.
