Tire warranties

Seems like all high mileage warranties that come standard when purchasing new tires is just a sales pitch.

I blew out my toyo at2 on the sidewall gouging some sharp rocks. The tires lasted me for about 150 extra miles punctured which is quite unbelievable. Now it can barely hold its air.

My tires have a 65k warranty so I should be covered. Called up toyo and they asked me if I purchased the tire insurance at time of purchase of tires. Nope. I thought the 65k warranty covers all that. Unfortunately real life road hazards are not covered.

They are giving me 50% off the purchase of a new one which I will likely am obligated to take since I wheel very often.

From my personal experience, when u purchase brand new tires....get the road hazard warranty.

I bought the road hazard warranty "Certificate for Repair, Refund or Replacement", at America's Tire (Discount Tires) for about $84. I assume the price varies. I've replaced 2 tires already. (In the last month from off road adventures) Both tires were beyond repair. Both tires replaced. However, when they replace the tire you have to buy the warranty for the new tire. WAY cheaper than buying a new tire. For me, so far, out of pocket for "my" warranty & 2 New tires $130.

This is from there website.

"How Does It Work?
If a tire covered by the Certificate for Refund, Repair or Replacement fails due to a defect or an unrepairable road hazard, and still has legal tread (3/32") remaining across the tire, and it has been in use less than 3 years from date of purchase, Discount Tire will give a refund of the full purchase price, together with the applicable sales tax and give you the option to purchase the same new or comparable tire at the refund price, with the payment of any applicable sales tax. There is no prorating, no disqualification for any reason such as run-on damage and no mileage adjustment. It is the very best tire certificate program we know of"

It worked for me.
When I buy my new tires, I'm going up to 3 ply side walls. I don't like puncturing my tires on the trail. But I'm sure some of you have punctured 3 ply as well.
