    Well Today im gonna get my new tires at Pepboys...The Definity Dakota M/T. they are $140 a piece so that comes out to $560...The warrenty is I think $130. that comes out to $690 and their is the tax.

    So is it really worth it?

    I wouldn't get it.... IMO - a total waste.

    You have a spare tire right? You know how to change the spare tire?
    Do you have a cell phone you can call someone to help you change a tire if needed?

    I mean...what exactly do they mean by ROAD HAZARD??
    They'll come and change the tire for you? If the tire fails and caused you to be in an accident....does that mean, they'll pay your towing bill? That's what car insurance is for....

    Do some heavy research before wasting your money on that.

    Did you check into the rebate? It requires the road hazzard warranty to get the rebate (buy 3 get 1 free). It works out to about the same cost but you get the hazzard warranty as well.

    I think you're confusing the road hazard warranty with road side service.

    Let's say you just popped the local 7-11 for the register cash and the cops got ya' in a hot pursuit...you're too busy waving at the dude in the helicopter and texting your bud's to watch you on TV and TOTALLY miss the spike strip on the road and run over it!

    Once your mom makes bail and your out...take it back to pep boy's, show 'em the road hazard warranty and get new tires! Ya! really!
