As of September 18th 2014, Tire Rack offers free Tire Road Hazard Program on most passenger tires we sell. This is an incredible value at no cost. Every year it seems we get several calls from customers that had a run in with a pothole and came out on the other side with sidewall bubbles or maybe even a complete blowout. This is always a frustrating experience, and this unforeseen expense always comes at the worst possible time. Additionally, other road debris, such as nails or glass, and other obstacles like curbs, can all result in varying degrees of damage. While we do honor manufacturer warranties, there are cases in which you'll need this additional protection as road hazard is not covered by your tire workmanship warranty.
The Tire Rack Tire Road Hazard Program allows you to go to any tire repair facility in the United States for service. You will need to pay for the repair or replacement and submit the invoice for reimbursement.
The program runs for 24 months or until the tire reaches 2/32" of tread depth, whichever comes first. In the case of a repairable tire, you would be eligible for up to a $25 reimbursement per occurrence. When the damage is more severe and not repairable, reimbursement is at 100% of the original price for the entire 24 month period.
There are some restrictions that can be reviewed in detail in the protection certificate, and the following are the most common:
- Coverage is available in the 48 continental states only
- LT, trailer and competition tires are not eligible
- Tire Rack original retail price over $410 are not eligible
