Tire Protection Program | Winkler Automotive

36-months nationwide tire protection program


Why we offer this program?

AAA compiled some statistics about the damage vehicles incur due to bad roads. Here are some surprising facts:

  • Most drivers experience damage from potholes 3X time a year and pay an average of $300 per repair – AAA
  • Potholes damages cost U.S. Drivers $3 billion in repairs each year – AAA
  • Unfortunately, the Washington DC area is not spared, and with the cold weather fast approaching, the potholes are set to multiply overnight.
