okay basic rundown of series of events
took my dad some stuff at the hospital, (broke his hip)... they basically force you to use thier valet parking.. so i let them park my truck.. i get home and really didnt pay that much attention to the tires nor the rims.. i get home from school and went to get the mail and notice that the rim looks bent.. i called the valet service and they say that since i didnt report it rite away that its not there responcibilty.. and there is no other way that it could have happend. I call my brother ( owner of the truck ) and he tells me to look it up... i am going to take the wheel off and look for any damage.. is there anything i should look for ?


thanks

it's kind of difficult to tell from the photo, but it looks as if there may be damage to the tire sidewall as well. your best bet would be to take the tire/wheel to a reputable shop and get their professional opinion on the wheel and tire.

...next, getting the valet service or the hospital that employs them to reimburse you for the cost of repairs/replacement will likely be a larger (and, more futile) battle...

The only time I let someone drive my truck that I didn't know was the valet I was forced to use when bringing my father to the ER for his heart attack. If my truck got damaged, it means nothing because my dad is okay. Thats what matters IMO. Plus, having big fat sidewalls rock...
