No i don't. They were aluminum and i bet the passenger side wheels were bent. I thought about finding a set to throw on there but when the adjuster said they werent any good i figured he knew what he was talking about. Insurance already picked it up from the tow yard anyways.

Aluminum rims are prone to cracking under extreme stress.

Just request more pictures. Every side, close ups of the body panels, frame, etc. Someone with nothing to hide will gladly take them for you.

Upon closer inspection, that truck has frame damage consistent with that hit to the right rear. The bed looks like it slopes down towards the cab, and the cab slopes down to the same spot.

You can really see it in this view.
