We'll driving home today, I hit a pot hole and bent the in side of my wheel, I now have a slow leak. Then pulling up my hotels hill my service 4x4 light, fcw light, traction control turn off and my esc light came on. Would my wheel be covered under warranty. What should I do about my control panel lights.

If you hit a hole...sounds like an insurance claim. Sounds like you damaged more than the wheel

I know here in Chicago if you try to go after the city or highway department...you will be strung along for quite a while for lack or road repair.
Hopefully a dealer can look at it and give you a quick estimate. And you happen to have a low deductible

as others have said, sounds like the jolt of the pothole did more damage than just the rim. IMO, don't bother going after the city/state about the road, it's a lost cause. Second, myself and a few others have realized Chrysler is VERY tough on replacing SRT wheels. I say 99.99% chance a warranty claim will be denied, even if the service adviser tries to slip it by with a different reasoning. The adviser needs to send digital pics in for Chryslers review and they'll see it's damaged.

Your only chance here is insurance claim...yes, it sucks. The wheel is $1,018.40 through justforjeeps with the Jeepgarage discount. My wife's 2010 has curb rash on the right front. I bit the bullet and bought a new 2010 wheel from JustforJeeps a couple weeks ago when it was on sale, it was $915.56. It's the only mark on her vehicle so I took the hit for a fresh wheel as opposed to trying to fix it.
