    Hey gang

    Last Saturday morning I noticed a weird noise coming from the back right tire. Immediately I knew it was either a rock or a nail. I’m not religious but I prayed pretty damn hard for it be a rock.

    Alas, it was a nail. Too close to the wall to repair. New tire. 245/35/21...$360 installed, balanced, and aligned.

    Progressive told me they don’t offer wheel/tire coverage separately so I’m in the market. Tried AutoNation and cannot get a call back to save my life.

    Curious if anyone on the forum has any tire/wheel insurance recommendations.

    If you buy tires from Discount Tire, not only do you get free tire rotations but also “insurance” on flat tires. You pay a bit extra for coverage but if you get a flat, you get the tire replaced for free.
