If you own a car, you know how important it is to maintain its condition and ensure its safety on the road. One of the critical components of a vehicle is its tyres, which can experience wear and tear over time. Repairing a damaged tyre can be costly.
Why Tyre Insurance is Essential
Tyre insurance is a policy that covers the cost of repairing or replacing a damaged or punctured tyre. In this blog, we will explore the basics of tyre insurance, including what it covers, how it works, and whether or not it is a worthy investment.
Hence, at CMH Nissan Pietermaritzburg, we encourage our valued customers to include tyre insurance in their monthly premiums. Here are the reasons why.
Potholes are rife on South African roads
The South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) says the country’s roads now have an estimated 25 million potholes, around seven million more than the estimated households in the country. The number is also 10 million more than reported in 2017, an increase of 67% in five years.
The harsh road surfaces, caused by lack of maintenance, can cause unforeseen damage to wheels and tyres and, in some cases, a terrible accident. In South Africa, the majority of pothole-related claims come from the cities of Pietermaritzburg (21%), Pretoria (20%), Potchefstroom (17%), Bloemfontein (15%), Johannesburg (14%) and Durban (13%).
The cost factor
With premiums starting from R1095 with fitment depending on the tyre size and various options suited to your budget compared to double the price if you had to replace four tyres straight from your pocket, it’s a no-brainer, especially if you are in an area with bad roads or if you use your vehicle for business purposes.

Secure your peace of mind
Apart from the reasons mentioned above, tyre insurance gives you confidence and peace of mind knowing that your vehicle is receiving the best treatment from an RMI-approved workshop and that the policy includes an embedded comprehensive 24hrs roadside assistance programme through Europ assistance.
