Pothole Damage Repair

Pothole damage to suspension and steering components can greatly affect performance & have safety implications. Wheels that have been buckled, damaged or cracked by driving over potholes can cause vibrations or your tyres to deflate, since damage from potholes can affect the overall performance of your vehicle, it is better to find time for us to perform an inspection of both the alloy rims and the tyres.

Common signs of Pothole Damage

  • Bulging in the sidewall area of the tyre
  • Dents, leaks and rusting
  • Axle, bearing and suspension failure
  • Vibration or deflation of tyre

Please call or visit our premises so that we can discuss the extent of the damage and how we can help.
