How Hitting Potholes Affects Vehicles
Potholes can cause tire damage, wheel damage, damage to your suspension and axle, alignment problems, missing hubcaps, and more. When you hit a pothole, the tires absorb the majority of the impact, but other components are also affected. This is because hitting a pothole causes an upward or horizontal force and then an additional vertical force when exiting the pothole. The level of damage to your vehicle depends on your speed, the diameter of your tires, and the size and depth of the pothole. The most common types of damage caused by potholes are:
- Damaged or missing hubcaps
- Torn sidewall
- Ruptured tires
- Bent, broken, or cracked wheels
- Damage to the suspension arm, tie rod, or steering linkage
- Unbalanced tires
- Shock absorber wear and tear
