Yes,,And if you add these or any other modifications to your vehicle, I would add this on to your own policy as "customization" so that if you have a comp or collision claim on your own policy, it is covered. This may depend on which insurance company is paying the claim, yours or the at fault person's. Your company many not cover your after market wheels if you did not purchase coverage for customized items on your vehicle. If the at fault party's insurance is paying you then yes they should take in to consideration the custom wheels on your vehicle.

I believe whomever caused the accident is at fault, whether their car was damaged or not. * The evidence compiled in the accident investigation will determine the responsible party. To determine who is at fault in a vehicle accident investigators use a method referred to as "chain of causation" and begin the investigation with the vehicle that was last in motion. This does not necessarily mean that the driver of said vehicle is the one responsible for the accident. It is quite possible that the driver of the vehicle that was not damaged will be the one determined to be responsible for causing the accident.

most time if the car was in an accident and is totaled you will have to by it back from your insurance company

It depends. Is there damage, what is damaged? What is the repair cost estimate? What is the year, make and model? What is the blue book value of the vehicle before the accident?

The insurer will have the vehicle valued at it's pre accident market value and pay the lower of the repair cost and the value

Contact the the emergency services hotline and file a complaint. Get the details of the emergency services personnel, involved in the accident.

Yes, you are correct. Items in your vehicle that are damaged in an accident or fire or whatever are not covered by you auto insurance unless they are part of your vehicle. The alternative is that they are covered on your homeowners insurance. The downfall to this is that you will have a deductible on your homeowners insurance that you will have to meet first.

If you haven't paid the vehicle off, then you must repair the vehicle with the insurance check. If you don't owe a bank anything, you are not required to fix the vehicle. Keep in mind, if the vehicle has unrepaired physical damage and you get in another accident the insurance company will not give you another penny. They are only required to repair the vehicle to the condition it was in prior to the accident. If it was already damaged, they won't give you a dime

absolutely and should promptly report to company, other driver can come back in a month with entire vehicle damaged claiming you did so........

Unfortunately, yes. I just went through the same thing. Your vehicle, no matter how pristine, is itself considered aftermarket, not new. It doesn't sound fair but the parts do usually come with a warranty.

the insurance company- if the vehicle is damaged more then it is worth- it is considered a "total lose" you will get what the car is worth at the time of the accident-not the total value of the car-other pendings vary like full compensation insurance

Your fuel tanks are built to last the lifetime of your vehicle. They should only need to be serviced if they are damaged in an accident, or if some contaminant has been added to the tank.

Yes as it has not been sold or registered yet. Many vehicles are smashed and damaged during the manufacturing process and no one is the wiser.
