“Coverage for a flat tire is standard with most roadside assistance programs. While they won’t pay to replace or repair your tire, they will put your spare on for you. If you don’t have a spare, they will give you a tow.
If you have the roadside assistance program that came with your vehicle, your car company or dealership may pay to replace your tires. When a vehicle is under warranty, they often pay to replace or repair any damages. You may also be able to find a similar plan with your tire provider.
Many tire providers have their own warranty plans that cover flat tires. If the tire can’t be repaired, they’ll pay to replace it.
You can also check with local or regional companies to see if they offer or specialize in roadside assistance with tire repair or replacement.”
