Ok guys so I'm driving home from work around 1:30 am this morning, along Westmorland Rd (East bound, left lane) and BANG there it is, a solid hole with a raised man cover, approximtly 4 feet wide, square, with a depth of about 1/2 a foot (maybe a little deeper) WITH ABSOLUTLEY NO MARKINGS TO SHOW A RAISED MANHOLE, OR A SECTION OF ROAD THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN BARRICADED!!!. I call the police and all he does is say, "oh, how much did that rim/ tire cost?..." Also aware of the potential damage to other drivers had placed a large pylon to block future traffic to hit it.

My brand new rim and tire are destroyed!!! Only had the tire on maybe 2 weeks ago.

What legal recourse can I take against either the City Works dept or Debly consturction???

That looks very repairable. See my post in the Wheel section about my bent rim. $110 and it's like new...

if it was left unmarked than the city is responsible for it,my friend just did 3000.00 in damage last week cause a riverview construction company did not mark where they finished working and left it for the night.

... it's not just bent, the outer lip on the rims is actually serperated from the rest of the rim, now in 2 completely seperated pieces, the innner rim is slightly bent, but not too bad.

I'll keep everybody posted on how it works out.

So far I've been in touch back and forth.. everything is filled and I ordered a new rim today.... I'm hoping for a quick recovery of my money but I'm happy in one sence, I just sold my old 17's and the new ones haven't even been on 2 weeks, but the tire survived without damage or scuffs!
