When it comes to tire warranties, you’ll hear people give two opinions:
- Opinion One: It’s a lifesaver.
- Opinion Two: It’s a scam.
It all depends withwhom you are talking with about tire warranties. To help determine if tire warranties are worth the investment, answer the questions below.
Question 1: How Much Do I Drive?
If you’re driving a lot and putting a lot of wear and tear on your tires, you may want to consider getting the warranty. Yes, blown tires can happen at any point, but the odds increase if you’re on the road a lot more.
Question 2: Am I Willing To Spend Extra?
Tire warranties will cost you additional money. Does your personal budget allow for you to spend money on the tire warranty? This is something that you will need to ask yourself.
Question 3: What Is Included In the Warranty?
Be sure to ask the sales clerk what is included in the warranty. All tire warranties are different. However, most cover defects in workmanship and materials over the life of the useable tread. Is this something that you’re willing to pay extra for?
Answering these three questions will help to determine whether or not to buy the warranty that comes with your tires.
In the end, it is all based on personal preference. Some people like the extra comfort in knowing that the manufacturer protects their car’s tires.Other people cannot justify paying the extra money.
Either way, you’ll figure out the answer after answering the questions in this blog post.
