No matter how carefully you drive, inevitably you will encounter glass, nails, debris, pesky potholes and other road hazards that can leave you with a tire or wheel in need of repair, or possibly replacement. Indianapolis after all is pothole city!! WISH TV even did a news piece on the “blitz against our city’s potholes”
Tire & Wheel Protection, will help keep your tires, wheels, and most importantly your budget intact with protection that’s available for your choice of three (3) or five (5) years.
Some benefits include:
Tire Replacement: Replace your tire if it becomes damaged by eligible road hazards such as nails, broken glass, tree limbs or a pothole.
Wheel Replacement: If your wheel fails to hold a seal with your new tire, we’ll replace it.
Unlimited Claims: With no limit to the number of covered claims, coverage for replaced tires continues during the term of the agreement as long as they meet your vehicle manufacturer’s size specification.
Towing: For eligible claims you will receive $100 per claim for the towing costs to the nearest authorized dealer or the costs to change the damaged tire with your spare tire.
Transferability: You can transfer, one time to another owner in a private sale.
Pricing: I cannot speak for all dealerships, but at mine we provide a three (3) year protection for $674 and a five (5) year protection for $794. These protection periods are available to be rolled into your lease or finance deal. For example; a 60 month loan with the same 60 months of coverage will only cost you $13.23 per month. A drastic difference than paying an unexpected cost of $225 to replace a tire and $800 to replace a rim.
I was inspired to write this today after seeing the pothole story on the morning news and then seeing the Lexus NX as I walked into the dealership this morning.
