Some of the leading brands of tires have a special road hazard warranty. These road hazard warranties only usually cover the first 2/32nds of tread and do not come with any reimbursement for tire repairs. They do not pay upfront at the counter & usually require time before any reimbursement can be given. Manufacture road hazards (most) do not cover the costs of mounting & balancing after replacement. Most tire brands including some of the big names do not have any warranty for road hazard whatsoever. If you would like to add security to your tire purchase it is strongly recommended to purchase road hazard. You can purchase road hazard during your next tire store visit.
