Q

You wrote an article on road hazard insurance, specific to tires. Do you carry this insurance. If so, what is the cost? If not, do you know of someone that does?


A

Our article, Is A Road Hazard Warranty Worth the Money? reports on the advantages of having road hazard protection on your vehicle's tires. Typically you can purchase this type of warranty for your tires at the same time that you buy new tires for your car. If you do it that way you can obtain this coverage usually through the tire seller.

If you purchase the road hazard warranty when obtaining your new tires it generally costs anywhere from $10 to $20 per tire. The road hazard warranty service is available at most places that sell tires such as Sears, Sam's Club and Pep Boys as well as major tire centers.

If instead you want to acquire a road hazard warranty without having to buy new tires you may be able to find this coverage offered through an insurance company's optional towing and roadside assistance coverage. Or with some of the companies that we are partnered with you can obtain a road hazard warranty for your tires as part of the Travel Protection Plan.

With the companies that offer the Travel Protection Plan the cost can vary but is generally around $60 or $6 per month. If you are interested in this coverage ask about it when getting car insurance coverage on your vehicle.
