Good Sam Tire and Wheel protection

Has anyone looked into this new service plan the Good Sam is offering:
https://www.goodsamroadside.com/tireshield/index.cfm

Offers to pay for tire and wheel replacement if needed. I'm interested in whether this is worth the money or just throwing money away.

I really donít like Camping World, besides they donít want my business. I bet you have to buy the tires from them. If you can find your size at Walmart they have a better road hazard insurance. They will even sell the road hazard insurance on LT tires

Any more that's all GS wants to do is sell ya stuff. Forget it. Get your own through who you buy your tires from. Later RJD

I was wondering the same thing myself. I don't recall it saying that you have to buy the tires from CW.

I have a real life story on this one. I bought a tire & wheel policy with our motorhome when we purchased the coach. Three years later we blew a front tire on a remote stretch of road in the N. Georgia Mountains. Our roadside service was an invaluable resource and got us with a reputable service who hooked us up with a reputable tire dealer but it took them a couple of days to round up the tire. They put a temporary tire and wheel on the coach so we could get to a campground until they got the tire in. We replaced both front tires and were back on the road. A month later I was going through the files looking for something and came across that tire & wheel policy. I had forgotten that I had it. I contacted the insurance company, sent them a letter with receipts and pictures of the exploded tire. They denied the claim because I should have contacted them first as stated in the policy's fine print. I will never purchase such a policy again. It is stacked against the consumer. A lot of people are like me and will forget they have it when they need it and when they need it, they will need the tire worse than the hassle of getting it covered under a policy that will base the payment on remaining tread life.

So you are faulting the insurance company for denying your claim due to the fact that you didn't follow the requirements?

For everything you have insurance on, the insurance company is always the first call when you have an event that should be covered. Period. Nothing new there.

If you decide to have a third party fix the problem w/o contacting the insurance company, it's on your dime. Even if you forgot you had a policy.

Sorry, no sympathy for you here.

After buying a tire policy from the dealer, I was surprised when they would not cover both tires simultaneously blowing out on the right rear. I later found out why: the policy only covers flat tires caused by striking an object in the road. My flats were caused by a bad valve stem. And the flat tire rubbed against the other tire causing it too to rupture. Read the fine print.

I canceled mine.
it only pays for total destruction of the tire while on the road. doesn't pay for any ting for wearing out

I don't think anybody would. That's just part of normal wear and tear.
