MVP Road Hazard Tire and Wheel Plan
The MVP Road Hazard Tire and Wheel Plan provides full repair or replacement costs up to $1,500 per year for all four tires and wheels. That’s not just for factory wheels, but for aftermarket wheels as well.
Plans may be purchased at any time in a vehicle’s life and cover damage from curbs, potholes and other road hazard conditions. The MVP Road Hazard Protection Plan also covers the cost of mounting, balancing and stems. And if the tire pressure sensor gauge is damaged due to a road hazard, that’s covered, too.
The plan even provides $100 “Sign-And-Go” towing and roadside assistance, all with a $0 deductible per repair visit.
The MVP Road Hazard Tire & Wheel Protection Plan also offers the choice of a Customer Convenience Package that provides additional coverage, including:
• $35 first day rental (or taxi reimbursement in lieu of rental)
• $35/day car rental allowance (or taxi reimbursement in lieu of rental)
• $1,000 trip interruption coverage
All 2003 model year (or newer) vehicles, with no more than 125,000 miles, are eligible for MVP Road Hazard Tire & Wheel Plans. Plans cannot be sold on vehicles with a new or pre-owned major plan. The effective date and mileage are based on the plan sale date and odometer reading at time of the plan purchase. Restrictions may apply in some states.
