Yesterday decided to take my new Mitsuibish Mirage for drive...to James Bay road in
Quebec---got as far as about 150 miles from my home----exit from I-75, giant pothole and deep, too. Result, deflated tire, bent steel rim---stopped trip. Could have been really nasty on bike, small scooter wheels...you might have stuck in hole.

One of the selling points of Mirage for me---compact spare tire/jack/lug wrench. Put tire/wheel back on, turned around went home. Total trip about 300 miles---will try again when snow is gone....with bike.

This was to be my first solo car trip in 20 years or so...I prefer bike/scooter for everything.
Last solo car trip either Geo Metro or my Honda Beat 660cc mid engine mini class sports car in Japan, I forgot which-----great thing of Mirage---good gas mileage---dash meter read 50.8 US MPG!! when I parked in my garage. Half of trip was at 50-60mph with mini spare. This car is almost in Silverwing territory on gas. Geo Metro mpg record for me---down hill, tail wind, stretch in Montana @ 56MPG.

So will have busy week finding new steel wheel/hub cap, checking front suspension. There are not enough Mirages in junkyard to find wheel there---could find in junkyards for my mother's '85 buick for $10, as she hit lots of curbs in her last years of driving.

Sorry to hear about the bad luck. Potholes here are everywhere some like the hole you encountered. Here at least if done within the system you can be reimbursed for your cost.
