Tire Rack's Tire Road Hazard Protection

Tire Rack includes its Tire Road Hazard Protection with the sale of most passenger tires.

Customers who purchased tires before September 18, 2014 and also purchased Tire Rack's Tire Road Hazard Service Program for those tires, can find their program information here.


We all do a lot of driving. There are potholes everywhere, debris on the roads and plenty of obstacles to avoid. Properly maintained tires can generally handle the bumps and scrapes, but inevitably one unforeseen road hazard can leave you with a tire in need of repair or replacement.

Tire Rack supports the tire manufacturers' warranties for all of the tire brands that we sell. Those warranties apply to tires that become unusable for any reason within the tire manufacturer's control, typically covering materials and workmanship. However, those warranties do not apply to causes and conditions beyond the tire manufacturer's control, such as road hazards. Because of this, many drivers desire the additional security and peace of mind that Tire Road Hazard Protection provides.

Road hazard damage is damage that occurs when a tire fails as a result of a puncture, bruise or impact break incurred during the course of normal driving on a maintained road. Nails, glass and potholes are the most common examples of road hazards.

With Tire Rack's Tire Road Hazard Protection, your tire repair or replacement is reimbursed (to the extent and subject to the conditions, provided in the Protection Certificate).
