Tyre and rim insurance

Wheely good cover meets ultimate peace of mind

In a nutshell

Our tyre and rim insurance covers, well, your tyres and rims. We’ll repair your tyres if they’re repairable, and we’ll replace them if they aren’t. We’ll also fix your rims if we can. So, damage from rocks, broken glass, potholes, steel and other road hazards = no problem, when you’re with the king. (We’re nice like that.)

You choose a 'sum insured', which is the maximum amount we'll pay for any claim. For different types of claims, we pay out different percentages of this insured amount. Your KPPD contains a table that shows you exactly how much we'll pay.

Naturally, the sum insured that you choose, along with your risk profile, determines your premium for this cover.
