Hitting a pothole can cause bent wheel rims, internal tyre damage, alignment problems, not to mention shock and strut issues depending on the severity of the impact.
With this unrelenting wet weather, we have seen an extraordinary increase in pot holes in our roads. According to the SMH, the council areas with the highest number of tyre callouts from pot holes were Blacktown, the Central Coast and the Northern Beaches.
Hitting a pothole doesn't necessarily mean you'll puncture your tyres or damage your vehicle, but it is something that can often times be underestimated, causing unexpected expenses down the line. To avoid this, we recommend having your tyres inspected and contacting Auto Outsource for a comprehensive check to ensure your vehicle is ok.
Here are some tips so you are better equipped the next time you hit a pot hole.
Assess the tyre damage (if any):
Sometimes you can get lucky. Other times, you just can't avoid the pot holes quick enough.
Damage to look for:
- Cuts to the tyre
- Bubbles or blisters in the tyre wall
- Damaged wheel rim
What to do:
Most cars now have run flats, meaning you can run it flat to the nearest tyre shop or even earlier - contact Auto Outsource to organise new tyres for your car and have them installed for you.
As your personal vehicle advisors, our clients can call Auto Outsource for the best advice and assistance, so that we can direct you on what to do.
Lately we have ordered a replacement tyre for our clients and have come out to them directly at their home, workshop or office on site to remove and replace.
Things to do next:
• Get a wheel alignment done.
• Change Tyres. Don't just change one tyre with a different model. If you have to, as the bare minimum, change both front tyres to the same model so they match. This is important because different tyre treads and sizes can be very dangerous and the handling of the car will be compromised.
• Repair any damaged wheel rim.
Auto Outsource can alleviate the hassles out of Tyre Replacement and Pothole Damage Repair, by taking care of it all for you.

In 2021, Rolls-Royce introduced the stunning 1 of 3, custom-built "Boat Tail" handcrafted convertible under their exclusive Coachbuild program. The program is an invitation-only service that offers selected clientele the unique opportunity to have their very own individually built motor car, making it a special collaboration between client and the vehicle maker, where the buyer is involved throughout the entire building process.
Despite the rumoured cost of around $30 million, the company had three buyers. The 1st "Boat Tail", rumoured to be made for Jay Z and Beyonce, was based around a yacht theme. Now, the second of the three cars has been revealed, themed around pearls.

Save the manual!
As more & more vehicle manufacturers move away from manual transmissions, the desire for "stick shifts" continues to grow, particularly within the used car market.
Automatic gearboxes certainly have their appeal; from lightning-fast upshifts and perfectly-timed downshifts as well as the sheer convenience. However many purists still seek the authentic and nostalgic driving experience a manual can offer.
Fortunately, for the three-pedal enthusiasts out there, there are still some manufacturers offering a manual transmission option from the factory.
Here's a list of every single make and model offering manual:
