What is Rim Damage Cover in Car Insurance?

In case any damage or loss is caused to an insured vehicle's wheel rims, a rim damage cover will offer reimbursement in case a rim or rims get physically damaged or warped. This can be caused as a result of a blowout or due to driving over kerbs, potholes or road debris. Many insurers have started offering this add-on to ensure the safety of a vehicle’s wheel rims.

This cover offers the cost of replacing the damaged wheel rim of the insured's vehicle up to a specific number of times. Usually, an insured vehicle can utilize this feature up to four times within the entire policy term. The optional cover will extend coverage to the damaged rims and offer a replacement with new wheel rims of a similar model, make and specifications.
