What is Road Hazard Damage?
The road can be tough on your tires – but with Road Hazard Tire Coverage you may be covered.
Road hazard damage occurs when a tire fails as a result of a puncture, bruise, or impact break incurred during the course of normal driving on a road maintained by state or local authority. Nails, glass, and potholes are the most common examples of road hazards.
Where Can I Get Service?
With a nationwide network of participating MINI Tire Centers, getting your eligible damaged tires replaced has never been easier.
If possible, return your vehicle to your original selling dealership. Otherwise, contact the program administrator (866.330.7569) during normal business hours to help you locate the nearest participating MINI Tire Center.
What Tires are Eligible for Coverage?
Replacement MINI original equipment (OEM), original equipment alternative (OEA), secondary plus (SEP), winter (WIN), purchased on or after February 1, 2018, and winter tire and wheel packages (WPK) purchased on or after April 1, 2020. WPK is replacement of tire only and does not include the wheel.
How Do I Get a Replacement Tire?
The Road Hazard Tire Coverage claims process is quick and hasslefree, so you can get back on the road faster.
- Present your eligible damaged tire(s) to the Original or Participating MINI Tire Center with the original invoice and your vehicle VIN.
- The damaged tire(s) may be required for inspection. In this case, you must provide the DOT number for each tire.
- Your MINI Tire Center will verify that the damage is covered.
- If a tire is eligible for program benefits, your MINI Tire Center will submit a claim and replace the tire up to a maximum benefit of $600 per tire. Your MINI Tire Center will keep the damaged tire(s).
- Sign the replacement invoice and you’re ready to drive.
DRIVING OVER ROUGH OR DAMAGED ROAD SURFACES, AS WELL AS DEBRIS, CURBS AND OTHER OBSTACLES CAN CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE TO WHEELS, TIRES AND SUSPENSION PARTS. THIS IS MORE LIKELY TO OCCUR WITH LOW–PROFILE TIRES, WHICH PROVIDE LESS CUSHIONING BETWEEN THE WHEEL AND THE ROAD. BE CAREFUL TO AVOID ROAD HAZARDS AND REDUCE YOUR SPEED, ESPECIALLY IF YOUR VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH LOW-PROFILE TIRES. PERFORMANCE TIRES MAY WEAR FASTER DEPENDING ON DRIVING STYLE AND DRIVING CONDITIONS AND MAY ALSO BE MORE COSTLY TO REPLACE THAN NON–PERFORMANCE TIRES OF THE SAME SIZE. FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE REFER TO THE TIRE MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY MANUAL PROVIDED WITH THE VEHICLE.
