Need to borrow some beater wheels/tires

Hey guys,

It's been a while since I've been able to get on here. I wish it was under better circumstances.

So while letting the wife drive (first mistake, I know) the 335 to LAX, she hit an epic pothole at 75mph, completely destroying my front right forgestar F14 and damaging the rear right and both tires. (see photos)

I was hoping there might be a charitable member in the OC/San Diego/Riverside area that would be willing to loan me their extra set of wheels and tires until I can get replacements from forgestar. I'd figure out some sort of collateral if necessary. I'm not picky by any means, so long as they roll. We've got two jobs and now only one vehicle =/

Has anyone had any success with claims against the state for potholes? She didn't bother to stop and photograph it, or even remember exactly where it was. I'm thinking discount tire may replace the tires under the road hazard warranty. Am I SOL?

That blows... Where at on the 78? My wife works at a dentistry clinic right off the 78, so given her current track record it might be nice to know...

Well I got taken out by another car not a pothole. If she drives on El Camino Real then it was probably some where on there. Pothole central
