I like how the two trashed wheels they show are big wheels with low-profile tires.

And one person said they need 3 rims? Was it a dually? How do you hit that with 3 wheels?

Can the drivers sue the city for a new rim?

That's 610 N Loop, right? State property paid by the Feds, paid by your income tax/chinese debt.

THIS, means that they might get reimbursed somehow or at least have a case.

From what I understand, the state has to know it is a problem before they can be accountable for it.

I don't see why they don't just cover it up with one of those huge flat sheets of steel until they can work on it over the weekend. I know you can't tel the extent of the damage but, a big enough sheet should be able to sustain and keep the weight from damaging it any further
