Tyres Repaired Or Replaced
TyreCare is a comprehensive tyre insurance policy offered by Kwik-Fit. Our TyreCare policy offers a cost effective way of protecting your tyres against accidental or malicious damage, from as little as £4.99 per tyre.
Tyres insured under the TyreCare policy will be repaired or replaced, fitted (including valve/s) and balanced at no additional cost to you, in the event that they are accidentally or maliciously damaged.
This gives you protection and convenience rolled into one. By having your tyres insured with us, you will be able to take your car into any one of our Kwik-Fit Group tyre centres nationwide should you need to claim under the insurance.
