Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 2008 mazda3 itouring i have 189000 miles and have had to replace 3 rims(factory $1400) and 4 tires. The repair shop said the rims were bent from hitting potholes and the tires from driving on bent rims. Has anyone else had any kinda of problems with rims or tires?

If your rims are getting bent up it is very possible they got there from hitting potholes, curbs, bumps, etc.. and your tires cannot function properly if they are not set on the rims properly. Stay off those icky roads as much as possible.

You should've gotten the package that covered the rims and tires then you wouldn't have had to pay outta pocket for all the damage that the pot holes do!
