If it was massive then yes, especially alignment issues, you can also bend rims and cause separations in the tires. Try to avoid potholes as much as possible unless you like spending money on suspension repairs and on some of the big ones body work.

Thanks @tennisshoes, ive checked tires an rims they seems fine, so should i just do my alignment? and make sure everything is 100% there?

Yes, that way you will know if something got bent and save the tires from abnormal wear not to mention peace of mind about your suspension. Tell them what happened when you take it in.

@tennisshoes thanks so much will definitely keep you posted, one more question my car has the m/s option and sport mode, when i put it in m/s do i have to select the sport button as well? because when putting it in the m/s gear it shows SD on dashboard?

It should be automatically switched, I'm not that familiar with that system. Does it say anything in the owners manual about it?

Nah it doesnt, cause it does automatically switch, but maybe i should just switch the sport mode on whenever need be?

Right, the only car I had that was equipped with a sport mode I switched to sport and it stayed in sport mode, where I lived was a winding country road with plenty of curves and hills.

Thanks so much @tennisshoes you have been a great help

Your welcome, good luck on the alignment check, hope nothing is damaged.

I'll add, that you won't know your rims aren't compromised by just looking at them. you need to remove the tire and have them check and spun on a machine. I've had rim get a 'flat spot' from a hug pothole before.

Thanks Tom
