GM covers tire hazards

DETROIT — General Motors customers are now able to buy tire road hazard coverage as an option on new-vehicle service and maintenance contracts. The tire damage coverage provides zero-deductible protection for flat tire repair up to $35 per tire, as well as complete or pro-rated replacement of the vehicle’s original four tires, up to $150 per tire.

Coverage extends for 60 months

or 50,000 miles, regardless of the

term of the underlying service or maintenance contract.

The GMAC Insurance Group also has expanded service plan limits to 84 months from 72 months for in-warranty vehicles and to 48 months from 36 months for out-of-warranty vehicles no older than 5 model years.
