Do you always purchase certs for refund/replacement? I'm curious as to how many of you guys purchase and actually redeem these certs? Are they worth it? Thanks for the input.

100 dollars is cheap esp when tires are over 300 dollars each

I did because they did it for $25 pet tire, so for $100 for lifetime of the tire insurance I thought is was worth it.
Is it really for the lifetime of the tire? I thought it was up to a certain tread depth, or three years from purchase? Can anyone confirm this?

If you read the certificate, its down to 3/32" or three years, which ever occurs first. For me, I'd reach the 3 year limit first. With only three years of coverage, I don't think the certificate would be of much value for me.

If a tire covered by the*Certificate for Refund, Repair or Replacement*fails due to a defect or an unrepairable road hazard, and still has legal tread (3/32") remaining across the tire, and it has been in use less than 3 years from date of purchase, Discount Tire will give a refund of the full purchase price...

I'm with BDT. I've been driving for 16 years and have only had one blow out and no punctures that couldn't be repaired. I pass on the insurance. As someone else mentioned, if you drive somewhere where sidewall damage could really be a reality, than maybe it would be worth it.

I picked up a piece of metal a few weeks back and toook it to discount to have them plug/repair it. I was watching them through the glass I watched them yank my old Michelin off and put a new one on free of charge (minus the new cost of a warranty) 40 something so yes it is worth it... come to find out I had picked up a rather large piece of metal a file to be exact and they decided it was to large to repair.

I always buy my tires at Discount and have never purchased the certificates and have never had a repair needed that couldn't be done or blown a tire that I purchased there. I have had tires that have gotten screws/etc in the tread on the edge that couldn't be repaired but they were always on the original tires that were on the vehicle when I bought it. Call me lucky I guess!

I don't purchase their certificates either. I never buy extended warranties on electronics or most any other product. I feel the money i save on all of these overall will cover repairs. It's worked out to my advantage over the years. The Discount 3 year limit is the main reason i will not do theirs. If i drove enough to wear out my tires in three years I might consider it. By the way, Discount will fix your flats for no charge if you purchased the tires from them regardless if you purchased their certificates. I am a loyal Discount tire customer.

I am running the third set of tires since 08 so I guess I am in the minority of buying the certs. I also run them at least to 50k each set.
