Damn...I just cracked a rim on a pothole

There was no way I could avoid it, at least I have the tire and wheel warranty so that should take car of it.

Bummer. Had it happen back in MI. Pot holes every 2 yards, you'd look like a drunk driver just trying to dodge them all!

Same happened to me. I think those rims crack way too easily.

When you drive with 35 or 40 series tires, the rims are going to take a beating, does not matter the brand.

Visited a couple of dealers and they have to order the rim and none of them have any loaners available until next Monday/Tuesday. Tire is still holding air, but is leaking very slowly.
