What kind of damage have Pot Holes done to your vehicles? None for me yet but I have a feeling this might be the year.

I can't think of any specific things, but they're certainly not doing any of my vehicles any favors.

I'm sure they've shortened the life of my suspension over the years.

Cut through the sidewall of a 185/65/15 Michelin Xice. Costco replaced it under the road hazard warranty.

Over the years we've had a couple of tires destroyed in close encounters of the third kind.
Other than that, really nothing.
