MT SYLVIA resident Todd Muller has asked for Mt Sylvia Rd to be properly fixed after a pothole destroyed his tyres and rims.
Mr Muller was travelling at 80kmh along Mt Sylvia Rd on March 31 at around 7pm when he hit the pothole.
"It was about 20km out of town, just before the Mt Sylvia School," he said.
"I had left home and went about 300m up the road before I hit the pothole.
"My mate lives near me and that was where we took the car because the tyres and rims were wrecked."
Mr Muller said he had never seen that pothole before.
"That night I went up to have a look at it and get the rocks off the road so that this wouldn't happen to someone else," he said.
"It was part of the road that had come away and the biggest part of it was the size of a brick.
"I have a custom Hilux and the tyres and the rims were worth about $4500."
Mr Mullins said he had been in contact with Main Roads about the issue.
"If there is a pothole they just patch it up which is a waste of time and money," he said.
"To really fix it, it should be done better and this happens every time it rains."
A Transport and Main Roads spokesperson said they were spending more than $10 million worth of reconstruction works to upgrade Mt Sylvia Road as part of Operation Queenslander.
