Bent Miro M6 rep

I have heard of this happening to replica wheels, so I guess mine
held up for some time, but I was washing my car and saw this
I have had them on since September though.
I have not driven crazy or do anything that would make this happen
I guess I hit a bump or something. Hopefully there is warranty still.

You don't remember hitting a bump or pothole that would cause this? Interesting post because this is the first I've seen about Miro rep wheels. Keep us posted on what the vendor says about warranty.

Warranty is only for the finish on the wheels not potholes,
so I will have to buy a new one

unless you bought additional wheel & tire insurance/roadhazard, you're up SH*t creek w/out a paddle.....just being honest.......

that looks like pot hole damage to me.....you can see the tire bulging because of the impact.....

I see. Looks like you'll have to a buy (1) new wheel & two new tires for the rear. That bubble in your sidewall is not good, the tire is compromised.

If you think your rim is bent on the outside, wait till you see the inside...negative camber. Btw, your tire is damaged. Oh, 265s on the front. Sick dude...sorry about your luck but its a common occurence on the east coast.

That wheel should be repairable. As far as wheel/tire insurance goes: if the damaged wheel/tire maintains air pressure the insurance won't cover it.

U definitely had to hit something and judging from how your tire looks it was not a small hit, U should remember it. There is no warranty on hitting a hole from the wheel or tire vendor, forget about it. The wheel is easily repairable as it's not cracked only bent a little, depends on how the inside looks. The tire needs to be changed asap.
