wow...10k +...thts huge. What other things are damaged? I wouldnt blame your wife for the pothole...anyone can hit it. you really dont have time and space to avoid it.
potholes can be nasty, my older Ford once hit a pothole on the edge and the tire, shock absorber, steering arm were damaged. To my surprise the wheel (Dynamic..dont know from where) was 100% intact, just needed balancing.
