Tires road hazard insurance

I was talking to a few guys today about tires and how many say they should be replaced every 5 years regardless of thread, and one of the guys said why not buy tire hazard insurance.
So my question is has any one used this insurance and has it worked out for them and what have they covered when a tire was damaged.

All feed back is welcomed

Tire road hazard insurance is generally only offered for the first two years on new tires. During this time it usually only covers the price of a new tire, no installation or road service and usually in the second year only covers 50% of a new tire price. If in the judgement of the installer the covered tire was run low on air pressure, no coverage!!

Tire hazard insurance is just that. for the tires only which are damaged from contact with a object on the road/pot hole/etc. Normally after a certain time or usually the amount of tread remaining a replacement tire's cost will be prorated. In no way does the hazard insurance cover the damage to the RV caused by the tire.

Discount tires hazard papers cover the cost of a new tire-no time limit-you would have to purchase a new hazard insurance for the tire.I have had two tires go flat for unknown reasons and have been fully covered.Good insurance for expensive tires.
