Tire & Wheel road hazard claims procedure

To obtain road hazard benefits you must:



If you have a tire and/or wheel damaged due to road hazard, call 1-855-225-0414 and follow the prompts for help. The Administrator will give you a claim tracking number and the name of a participating service facility (if needed).

  • You must obtain prior authorization to replace a tire and/or wheel, or to have a wheel repaired. If you fail to obtain prior authorization, your claim may not be eligible for reimbursement.
  • No prior authorization is required for flat tire repairs.

Await authorization

If a tire or wheel needs to be replaced, or if a wheel needs to be repaired, and authorization cannot be obtained because the damage has occurred outside of the Administrator's normal business hours, you may elect to wait for authorization to proceed with a tire or wheel replacement, or wheel repair. In order to be eligible for reimbursement:

  • If replaced, you must retain the damaged tire or wheel for inspection
  • If the wheel is repairable, ensure that you have the repair facility provide you with the bare rim runout measurements/readings and take clear pictures of the damage before the wheel is repaired
  • The Administrator must be contacted within 2 business days by calling 1-855-225-0414. There is no guaranteed eligibility.



You must sign the repair or replacement invoice.



If the repairing facility will not accept payment directly from the Administrator, then you must pay for the repair or replacement and obtain reimbursement.
