Default I struck a pothole

I hit a pothole and it burst the tyre and dented the rim at around 40km/h. Is there any other damage i should look out for? TIA

Bummer. I did that once in a Dodge Caravan many years back. Turned out the axle was also bent. Is this a front or rear tire? I'd certainly take a close look for any related damage.

a visual inspection and road test with a new tire and rim should confirm the extent of the damage ... you might want to get an alignment though anyway ... remember to change the tires in pairs

Update: Got the rim fixed and will be putting on slightly bugger tyres tomorrow!. No suspension damage

Always been curious if a steel wheel would have dented in a case like this
