I hit a bad pothole in a construction zone that bent both rims. My rear tire immediately ran flat and would not hold air. The repair shop estimating damage calls for both wheels to be replaced but not the tires. Should I trust them and keep the same tires or also get new tires at this time? Should I argue for insurance to cover it (the construction contractor's insurance is accepting liability)? Is that justifiable and above board? I'm confused if I should be worried that the tires were also potentially damaged and I don't want a future blowout. Any suggestions? Any parts or service I should consider tacking on (outside the insurance coverage) at this time on my 04 Burgman? As I understand the info from the repair shop even without tires the estimate is 1869.04. BTW when I saw the hole it was too late to do more than get some weight shifted onto my feet and flex my knees. In the crash thread going on now there is a lot of talk about braking hard and swerving before an impact. I think there are times when you are better off forgetting the brakes, throttling back, and keeping loose while riding straight through/over an obstacle like a hole or an obstruction like a rock, nuts or animals. Thank you.
