the city shal pay for it

i bent my rim and told the city

im awaiting a cheque

its their responsibility to maintain the roads and if your car is damaged on their road then they will fix it

are you serious. they will pay. who do i call. do you have a number.

08-30-2004, 03:58 PM
i dont have the # for your city hall but when i call my city call i just called the # in the phone book and they directed me to the legal dept.

and yes they will pay for it if they deem the road that object that bent your rim

when i called the city they told me i had to report the incident within 10 days

^^there has to be some sort of guidline.. or else ill jus run around downtown with shitty rubber and bottle caps and claim it to the city u know..

08-30-2004, 06:11 PM
not many people know about it, i guess thats why no one claims cause they dunno about it

these are the guide lines i was given, u must repost the incodent within 10 days of the damage, write a letter to the legal dept and explain in detail where and what happened, show pics of the damaged road if u can then an ajustor will come see u and inspect the damage of your car, get an estimate then 90% of the time they will pay you for it

I got some work done at Rim Techniques (416-740-3773) in North York (2300 Finch Ave W #66). They weren't bad...I needed some rim straightening...they were reasonably priced and pretty fast.

I've used them as well. Good work at a good price.

How much did they charge per rim ?? 100$ ?

i recently found out that all 4 of my rims are bent like crazy.. so hopefully this will work by contacting the gov't to get my rims fixed.. the roads by my house is horrible due to construction, the bumps are so big that i'm 100% sure it caused the damage on my rims.. i have emailed them for more info, i'll keep you guys informed on what happens.

Not bad... my quote from Wheelfix:

Straightening without refinishing costs $60~$180ea depending on what process
is required to correct them. Lip jobs cost $68.95ea w/ additional
straightening costing $40~$130ea. Thanks, John

I also got my 2 wheels, and an alignment paid for by MTO. I hit a huge pothole on the 401. I had to quote the exact date, time and location plus receipts. It took a while, but they did pay up. Essentially, I just dealt with the Province's insurance company.

windwagon. did you call them with 10 days.

09-02-2004, 01:09 PM
Yes, but it took them a long time to get back to me. The people were actually very friendly and didn't mind that I started calling weekly to check on the status (which didn't change). Essentially, they just verified that the big pothole existed in the location and time I quoted, and they sent me a cheque. They did recommend that I fix the car first and pay for it, since the process is long.

I don't think there is a 10 day statute of limitations, but I wasn't going to mess around. Contact them now!

I found this http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/faq/other.htm#highways1

On the MTO website, but I think you need Toronto Works.

good luck!
