Since I have been getting nails in my Yoko A048s over and over, I searched "tire insurance" and found this.

https://www.roadhazardprotection.com/

Has anyone used something like this before? There isn't much information on the website, and doesn't sound that useful at all.

1. They will "repair" or replace the tire. -- well, I can get the tires repaired free at many tire shops...
2. $40/tire for five years. -- well, Yoko A048s don't last 5 years...


Here's an article about "tire insurance" as well.

Tire Insurance: Myths And Facts About Road Hazard Policies


Are there any good tire insurance policies? :shrug:

Extended warrantees, insurance, forget it. They are the biggest scam around. Each time you can buy insurance for an appliance, car (except health and house) put that money in a bank account and don't touch it (except for repairs to the stuff you were going to insure). By the time you retire you'll have an extra $100,000.

Don't forget, that these tires only last 5-8k miles. A tire claim isn't going to save your tire for another 20,000 miles and thus be "worth it"
I'm not anti-insurance (that's what I do for a living), but I have to agree here. Figure you're looking at $0.005 to $0.01 per mile times four wheels and the odds don't favor you in the least.
