Well I had a front tire blow out on my spyder tonight!

Question

Well I had a front tire blow out on my spyder tonight!!!! On highway 40/61 about to get on highway 70 going towards STL and there is a giant pothole!!! Wentzville police Lake St. Louis police and Missouri highway patrol would not do anything! And we were told if you get a police report the highway department should reimburse for the tire. Has anyone else had this experience? And also looking for recommendations for cheap place to purchase tires?

    I have NEVER heard of being reimbursed for tire damage from potholes. I think someone is pulling your leg!

    I’ve lost two tyres on council roads in the Hawkesbury, costing me over $!000 – cheap bastards at Council claim they’re exempt from responsibility under the Local Government Act. Couldn’t be because they let fully loaded semis on residential roads, could it. Pricks.

    Have you considered using a car tire? Stronger load rating 4 ply vs 2?ply and find them more concentric and balance is easier to achieve.

    Just bought 2 tires for the front at Wal-Mart about 90 bucks.

    It the pothole has been reported before you hit it you can file a claim. You will need to have photos of the pothole and the location.

    The problem (at least around here) is finding a dealer who will mount them (car tires on a Spyder).

    Front tires can be mounted by anyone.

    If you just bring the wheels in they usually don’t notice the motorcycle part

    I have had many experiences with blown out tires due to potholes. Not one has and paid for. Every claim was declined! Go for it anyway

    if the state or City are aware of the pothole and did not fix it within a certain period of time then they are liable to fix your vehicle if it gets damaged. In the City of Davenport Iowa

    Make sure the rim isn’t damaged.

    I found by giving enough distance to the vehicle in front of you and continually eyeing the road while you drive you avoid most of those potholes.

    Switched to Federals recently. Great ride improvement. About $85.00 a tire.
