A road hazard occurs when a tire fails due to a puncture, bruise, or break incurred during the course of normal driving on a maintained road. Nails, glass, and pot holes would be the most common examples.
The following vehicles are not eligible for coverage: Vehicles with a manufacturer’s load rating capacity of 1 ton or greater. Vehicles used for racing. Zero pressure, PAX or any extended mobility tires are excluded. COMMERCIAL VEHICLES. Any vehicle used for farm, ranch, agricultural, or off-road service. Coverage excludes damage from off-road use (off-road use is defined as driving on anything other than a paved or gravel road maintained by state or NATIONWIDE authority), damage from collision, fire, vandalism, theft, snow chains, manufacturer’s defects, abuse and neglect (i.e., improper application, improper inflation, brake lock up, wheel spinning, torque snags, etc.). Tires with torn beads. Also excluded are damages resulting from mechanical failures (i.e., failed shocks, struts, alignment, etc.) or interference with vehicle components (i.e., fenders, exhaust, springs, etc.). Also excluded are any tires that have been retreaded, recapped, regrooved, remolded, tubed or repaired in a manner other than per manufacturer’s guidelines. This plan covers only the tires registered to the customer and listed by DOT number on the original invoice or plan certificate. CONSEQUENTIAL AND INCIDENTAL DAMAGES ARE EXCLUDED. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of consequential and incidental damages; therefore, such limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

Vehicles equipped with TPMS may incur additional costs for flat repairs and tire replacements. This plan does not cover subsequent damage to TPMS sensors incurred during a tire failure or flat tire.
