The winter time puts drivers at more of a risk of bending and damaging their rims, then at other times. Why is this the case? The reason is pretty simple, we all know how roadways react to cold and hot, contraction and expansion right? So if you factor this into the equation, then you see that NYC potholes that have been repaired before are more likely to go through more stress then a solid piece of roadway.
This will cause the old pot hole filling to become loose, the you have the snowplows and salt spreaders will be shaking up what ever is left in that pot hole, but the real danger and damages to the rims and tires come when that pothole looks full of snow like part of the roadway.
