Just wondering who, if anybodywould be responsible for this and if anyone has advice.

The pot hole was unmarked, there was no gravel or anything inside it. No warning signs at all to let you know of the road hazzard.

I dont have collision on the car.... and wouldn't go through ICBC anyways cuz a new rim and tire is less then $300 deductable anyways. If i have to i will take this to small claims.

Just wondering if anyone has any good info or tips for me for getting someone to pay for the damages to the car.
hope this might be of some help to you:

it's tough getting money from municipalities to pay for wheel damage due to potholes.

you have to prove that the municipality knew of the pothole's existence (reported already) and they unreasonably delayed the repair. what's considered unreasonable time? that's for the courts to decide.

bingo...and that's the thing...given the mudslide, the weather, their manpower/supply of equipment, the number of fresh potholes and the fact that it had only been there for days, I doubt ANY court would find it an unreasonable delay constituting negligence.

oh and offroadzuki. The "gravel" on the side of the road is not "gravel" its little pieces of the ashphalt that came out of the road.

so you were following too closely.

and you spotted it many times since you saw it for "days and days".... yet you still hit it knowing it was there....
