If a tire(s) covered by the “Road Hazard & FREE Tire Repair Protection Plan” becomes unsafe and unusable due to a road hazard, such as a non-repairable cut, snag, nail or glass puncture or during the life of the original usable tread, it will be replaced with a comparable tire. The replacement cost will be determined by multiplying the original purchase price of the tire (excluding taxes and other applicable taxes and service charge outlined in the following example.
Original tread depth: 11/32nd*
Remaining tread depth: 7/32nd**
Original Purchase Price: $150
Percentage of tread worn: 44%**
Replacement cost would be $150 original purchase price (or current retail price) x 44% = $66 plus applicable disposal fees, charges for mounting, balancing, stems, sensors and rim cleaning.
WHAT IS ROAD HAZARD?
Road Hazard damage occurs when a tire fails during the course of driving in a legal manner on a road maintained by state or local authority.

Tips for Avoiding Road Hazards
Some road hazards are unavoidable, but using the tips below, you can give yourself a safety edge – and protect your tires at the same time.
Look: Make sure you keep your eyes on the road at all times, and avoid unnecessary and dangerous distractions like texting or talking on your cell phone. If you’re in a larger area, busy area or a school zone, keep a look out for pedestrians or cyclists entering the roadway. Also keep your windshield as clean as possible so you can see any unexpected hazards clearly. When you visit us for regular maintenance, we’ll make sure your wiper fluid is full and that your wipers are in good condition.
Listen: If you’ve got the radio on, make sure the volume isn’t so loud that you can’t easily hear things like other cars approaching, horns honking, or emergency signals from fire trucks or ambulances.
Light: Keep your headlights on if it’s anything but sunny outside so the road is well-lit and so others can easily see you. It’s actually the law in most states to have your lights on after dusk or if it’s rainy or foggy. And keep in mind that your blinkers aren’t for sending Morse code messages to your buddies. Anytime you’re making a turn or changing lanes, use your blinker ahead of time to let others know what you’re about to do.
Leave Space: Keep a safe distance between you and the car in front of you using “The 3 Second Rule”. To test your distance, pick out a landmark or spot on the road. As soon as the car in front of you passes it, count a full three seconds. If you reach that same spot before the three seconds are up, you’re too close. If the car in front of you unexpectedly slams on their brakes, you’ll need that 3-second cushion to avoid an accident. This space also allows you plenty of time to avoid road hazards like debris or potholes.
