Can I buy it?

It’s a fact

Tyres by their very nature are particularly exposed to damage caused by debris and broken road surfaces. Today’s low profile and run flat tyres can be extremely expensive to replace and damage can often occur when we least expect it and can least afford it.

An increasing number of car manufacturers now use a tyre technology called ‘Run Flat tyres’ for reasons of improved safety and driver convenience. This technology dramatically improves driving safety if a puncture occurs at high speed, because Run Flat tyres are designed to remain intact and in shape in the event of a deflation. The reinforced side walls are normally capable of bearing the weight of the car for up to 100 miles at 60 mph. From a convenience point of view, this also means if you get a puncture at night or during poor weather, there is no immediate need to stop and fit the spare wheel.

Why is Tyre Insurance in such demand?

This safety and convenience comes at a cost. Run Flat tyre prices are slightly more than low profile tyres and they range from £150 – £400 depending upon make, size and rating. A typical Run Flat tyre on a mid-range BMW 5 Series for example, could cost in the region of £250 – £400 to replace.

Run Flat tyres are not currently repairable, therefore even if you experience minor damage such as a puncture – the tyre will almost certainly need to be replaced. Other tyres including Low Profile tyres rarely survive a sudden puncture or damage caused by kerbing or pothole damage and in these circumstances, a replacement is almost inevitable

Vehicle tyres are at high risk of damage. They absorb the rigours of day to day driving on pot holed and debris littered roads, whilst carrying the weight of the vehicle, its passengers and luggage.

Unlike bodywork damage, tyre damage cannot be left unattended. It can render your vehicle unroadworthy and unsafe.

Tyre Insurance can provide valuable cover for up to four years - despite the exceptionally high risk of damage occurring. Why is it your fully comprehensive insurer will not cover tyres?

So, do you need it and is it a worthwhile investment and good value? – That is for you to decide, but you must agree there are compelling reasons to give it serious consideration.
