I have a set of replica Lowenhart LD1 22" rims on my Chrysler C300. One developed a crack in the rim after clobbering a pothole in Paisley.
I have genuinely not been able to source a matching replacement. As such, I feel I am justified to claim for a full new set of four rims and the council are saying they will only pay for one.
Where do I stand on this?
Apart from still being unable to give a value on the replacement cost of one as I cant find them, can they reasonable expect me to run a car with one non matching alloy?
Tricky one this, there is no right or wrong answer and it wil depend on how far you are willing to push the matter.
I appreciate your issue. However, you are entitled to claim what you actually lost and it is not the council's fault that replacements are not available. That said, it's not your fault either and their actions led to your predicament.
A sympathetic judge might side with you, but on the other hand you might come across as being unreasonable.
Not been much help have I, sorry.
