    Default May have buckled my wheel, help.

    Right two days ago i drove out to my house, its down a country lane, two lanes, one each way, lines and cats eyes so its not an unkept road.

    I heard a bang etc as came down a slight gradient. I went out to my car this morning to notice a flat tyre. That could only of been caused by the knock it took the previous day, its not moved since then.

    I rang my local ATS, and he said obv dont drive it as i may have buckled/bent the wheel.

    If the wheel is damaged and needs replacing, will I be able to claim from the local council for it? Due to me driving into a pothole, Im not sure on the depth of it, as its a few miles up the road and I have no way of getting there.

    Ideas?

    ETA:
    I have a set of 205's with tyres that could go on, but my drives slanted and icy, the stones are frozen together and i slid about a foot this morning just getting to the car. Plus its feckin freezing outside and I dont like the standard jacks tbh.

    I think you'll find it hard to claim of the council and if they do pay out it wont be for a year or so...
