What is Tyre & Rim Insurance?
No one ever plans to suffer a blowout and if you have ever had a flat tyre, then you know how expensive they can be to replace. In addition, if the damage is significant and damages your rim, as well, the out of pocket costs increase dramatically, easily costing you hundreds. Tyre and rim insurance protects you from the bulk of these costs.
This vital insurance covers punctured tyres, blowouts, and damage incurred due to road hazards such as potholes, debris, nails, screws, glass, metal, and roadside kerbs. It also provides for damage to rims from these hazards. Tyre and rim insurance pays the cost to repair vehicle or motorcycle tyres and rims up to a specified amount and offers numerous benefits in addition to peace of mind.
