    On my drive to work it hit a rather large pothole, causing the alloy wheel to buckle.... Problem is the wheel is a replica rs4 alloy and the seller in purchased it from no longer stocks the wheel, so I now can't replace it, what should I do?

    New RS4 alloy? Or contact Audi breakers for a second hand price.

    Put a claim in with the council. They will replace the wheel. Or pay for a new set. Trust me it works. Take pics of the pothole etc

    Claim for it.
    We pay enough for the up keep of our roads and they should not be in the state they are.

    Do this, nothing to lose.

    The state of some roads nowadays is ridiculous!

    I'm not sure how true that is.
    My mate use to work at the claims department for our local council and he said they just pay the claim under specific value.

    It is true, some councils dont accept a claim, stupidly I know, if there has been no alerts of the pothole to repair, so I always say get missus etc to ring them to advise of pothole, get reference, then ring as yourself & claim about the wheel/pothole, that way you're covered.
