  • I was driving down Brauston Road on the 20th January 2022 on my way to work when I drove over the pot hole, heard a loud crunch, my car hit it and bounced. I felt the steering didn’t feel right so I turnt around and drove home. When I got home I checked the tyre and the wheel, the tyre was completely flat by the time I got home and the wheel had clear damage to it. I phoned HomeTyre the following morning and they had someone come out to my address. On looking at the tyre, he told me I needed a whole new wheel and tyre because of the extent of the damage. I was then left without a car for 3 days which meant I was unable to get to work. I also have a picture of the wheel but it will not allow me to upload. Thanks
