Well, it seems
as if the roads in my town hate the XFire, need suspension upgrades and now this.
Went over a deep unmarked pot hole and now I have two busted passenger tires and a cracked rear rim. I currently have a claim in progress through my insurance. Without a doubt will need a new rear rim for my passenger side though. Not as concerned about the tires.

Take a photo of the pot hole, a friend ruined a tire and rim complained and the town said "What pot hole'. They had filled it in before he got back to take a picture that same night.

You should make sure the tires are not internally damaged. If they are ripped inside, they can fly apart at speeds. Be careful with pothole damaged tires!

Ouch, that is not a pothole, that is a small pond...
definitely be going to the city transportation claims department.

I had a pothole outside of Cincinnati get my rear tire 2-3 years ago
6 hrs from home
And I was seeing many threads of cracked wheels so I ordered some aftermamarkets, been wanting anyway.
