  • While that looks fairly insignificant, you would be best taking it to a wheel specialist for them to look for any cracks in person.

  • As well as to see if it is still true or out of round. We can't do that for you here on the internet. Sep 11, 2023 at 20:18
  • Short of visiting a wheel shop, some ways of damage assessment may be asking yourself the following questions? Does the car vibrate at any speed since hitting that rock? Any steering wheel feedback (front wheel/suspension damage)? Tire pressure leak? Updated TPMS; individual tire pressures can be very helpful if pressures are monitored at least once a week unless totally ignored then a tire pressure gauge is needed to determine if damage was sufficient to cause bead separation for a leak to occur. At the least, damage allows bare aluminum to begin corrosion that can lead to a bead leak later.

  • The sidewall of the tire appears to be damaged. I wouldn't drive on that tire at all. Sep 13, 2023 at 10:03
