and its a new fuckin tire. now i know i have to replace the tire but heres the thing. i was at a stop light, turned left and boom. the front end has a heartattack after hitting a crater thats been cut out of the ground. now if this has happen to any one else i was wondering if i could try to get the city to reimburse the cost of the tire. the hole was definately cut out of the ground and ther was nothing marking it. theres also a cunstruction company working on the corner i turned passed so i was going to talk to them and see if they made the hole. could they be held responsible for the tire ? and i know this isnt directly a car problem but damn i cant afford another tire. i mean the bubbles not bad but i cant run on that shit. any thoughts would help.

A tire with a bubble in the sidewall is a timebomb waiting to go off, but it sounds like you already know that.

As for the rest of it you should be able to call the city and find out who was digging on that corner (I'd start with the city engineering department). Once you find out who it was then you would need to file a claim with them. If you had any photos of the hole/trench it would probably help.

Go there tomorrow and take pics and also take a ruler to take a pic of the depth. You can then go to the town and file a report I believe. I am sure you are not the only one!!!
