so a few weeks ago i was cruisin on the highway and well the highway went down to one lane b/c of construction and the road was really bumpy and nasty. well, secs after going into the construction zone i hit a pothole, now this wasnt a normal pothole... when i hit this pothole my windshield wipers got knocked on, my HIDs flickered really noticablely and my sunglass holder opened. now, i was like , holy sh1t!! then the car started pulling to the left, at that instant i knew i had cracked my rim...and well here are some pics to show ya the damage that a pothole can do to a 17" in rim on 225/45/17s

I hope you plan on filing a claim to get your rim replaced. They are liable for that, not you.

yeah dude, the construction company paid me 700 to replace my rims, file a claim make sure you have pictures to give them not only of the tire, but of the pothole before they fill it
