My dad had a punctured tyre and cracked wheel a couple of weeks ago (335d M Sport 18's) and has a claim in with the council at the mo. I will let you know how he gets on but that would be my route.
I tried this route a few years back with one of my previous broken rims. I enclosed photos of the pothole with a ruler in it to show it as about 5cm deep.
A week or two later I got a letter back saying that this road was checked every X weeks (cant remember the period) and that the pothole was now fixed and they had done all they were required to.
So that turned out to be a complete waste of time considering they can make up any crap to cover their arses.
