Is it worth taking out annual wheel protection?

0800 840 4040

When owning a new car, punctured tyres, scuffs or scratches to the alloys are inevitable, regardless of how careful you are.  

Wear and tear is one thing we can’t do a lot about in life, and this extends to your alloy wheels, unfortunately. The truth is that even the most careful of car owners will most likely run into damaged alloy wheel issues at some point. With an annual wheel protection, you can rest assured that your wheels are protected from damage.   

Here at Prestige Wheels Ltd, our annual wheel protection includes refurbishment or repair on up to 8 wheels across 12 months. We provide complete alloy wheel repair where the whole wheel is refurbished – this is not a temporary, cosmetic repair. Whether the alloy wheels are diamond cut, powder-coated, or painted, we will restore them and get them looking like new. 

If you’re still not sure whether you need annual wheel protection or how it can benefit you, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about this type of service: 

What is annual wheel protection?

An annual wheel protection provides cover specifically for your car’s alloy wheels. If your shiny new alloys happen to get scratched or scraped while you’re driving or if you accidentally hit a kerb, then the annual wheel protection can cover the damage and protect you from a high repair bill.  

Our annual wheel protection plan is designed to cover both mobile and repair services on one car, thus giving you the peace of mind that you can get the costs refunded during the period of cover.  

Why should you consider annual wheel protection?  

If you choose to protect your wheels from damage with an insurance plan, the policy will cover the costs of any alloy wheel refurbishment and repair services.

Besides helping ease the financial burden, an annual wheel protection can help keep your wheels in a good condition. Bookings for our annual wheel protection can be made separately over the course of 12 months and no other discounts can be used in conjunction.  

What is excluded from annual wheel protection? 

Before choosing your wheel protection insurance, it’s important to do your research, read the full policy and understand what is excluded from it. For instance, pre-existing damage to your wheels won’t be included in the insurance claim, along with more complex alloy repairs. We can provide you with wheel protection for our mobile wheel repair services and our wheel refurbishment services for only over 12 months.  

Overall, if you park regularly in tight spaces or if you have a history of scuffing your car’s wheels, then alloy wheel insurance can be a good investment. An annual wheel protection will help you save money in the long run and keep your car looking sharp.
