The repair will be covered up to $35.00 per tire, per occurrence. You are responsible for any additional charges including, but not limited to, mounting, balancing, taxes and miscellaneous fees. The Program will remain in effect for the repaired tire for the remainder of the Coverage Term.
TIRE REPLACEMENT: If, during the Coverage Term, an Eligible Tire is damaged due to a covered road hazard, the damaged tire should be replaced by Treads or any tire servicing facility with an exact make/model of tire if available. If not available, a comparable quality tire should be installed. When an Eligible Tire failure occurs, the Eligible Tire will be replaced with coverage up to the lesser of the replacement tire as outlined above. Mounting, balancing, valve stems and disposal fee will be covered up to a total of $50.00. In no event shall the covered amount exceed the Benefit Limit. You are responsible for any additional charges including, but not limited to taxes and miscellaneous fees.
Properly care for and maintain your tires, including ensuring tires are operated at proper inflation pressures.
Use all reasonable means to protect your tires from additional damage.
Contact the Program Administrator at 1-877-377-2884 for prior authorization and a claim number before replacing a damaged tire.
Furnish such information as may be required, including but not limited to the Department of Transportation (DOT) number of the damaged tire.
Incur only expenses which are authorized in advance.
Payment of all expenses and costs not reimbursed by this Program.
If a tire needs to be replaced and prior authorization cannot be obtained because the damage has occurred outside of the Program Administrator’s normal business hours, you may elect to wait for authorization or proceed with a tire replacement. In order to be eligible for reimbursement: (1) if replaced, the damaged tire must be retained, AND (2) the Program Administrator must be contacted at 1-877-377-2884 within 2 business days. There is no guaranteed eligibility.
WHAT YOU MUST DO TO MAKE A CLAIM WHEN AN ELIGIBLE TIRE IS DAMAGED:

If the Eligible Tire can be safely repaired, you do not need to contact the Program Administrator for prior approval to repair the tire. The repair will be reimbursed as described under Flat Tire Repair.
If the Eligible Tire cannot be safely repaired, the Servicer must contact the Program Administrator at 1-877-377-2884 for prior authorization and to obtain a claim number (not required for flat tire repair). Prior authorization and a claim number must be obtained before replacing the damaged tire or your claim may be denied.
