been a long time since I had one towed but I bet the paper that you signed with the tow company exempted them from any damage..your insurance might cover it

$375 for a single used wheel?? You can buy 3/4 new ones for that price.

First off, if he towed you, then he shouldn't have been going more than 45 mph. Should have been hauled on a flatbed. The L arm on the truck must have done that or a ratchet strap on the tire from the L arm. Your insurance or theirs will cover it, it just depends on how you work it out with the company.

I grew up into a towing/repair family business and anything that's rwd or awd should be hauled so there's no damage to the rear diff or drive shaft. Even if it's still in neutral. Just my .02

Good luck!
