Australia’s bad roads spell trouble for tyres & wheels
Australia’s rough roads can cause carnage on your vehicle’s tyres and wheels.
Australia’s size and weather is hard on our roads…
Given Australia’s size, extreme weather conditions and dispersed population, it should come as little surprise that some of our country roads are in extremely poor condition.
A report from the 2022 Joint Select Committee on Road Safety recommended “funding dedicated to safety improvements on and around regional, rural, and remote roads” which they identified as an area of concern.
…so our roads are hard on your tyres and wheels!
So, it’s evident that remote country roads pose a risk to us, but do you know they can also spell trouble for your vehicle’s tyre and wheels?
The report deemed that potholes, undulations, and debris on roads are more common on regional roads, and these can cause serious damage to your wheels and tyres.
The bad news is that this kind of damage isn’t covered by your regular comprehensive insurance policy, which tend to only cover damage related to an accident or theft.
Modern cars can have wheel sizes anywhere from 17” to 20”, so replacing a damaged wheel and tyre at the same time could cost well over a thousand dollars.
So, what can you do to protect yourself from a big repair bill?
