Rim Protection Warranty?

So, I have a little curb rash from letting someone else drive my car for only a few minutes and was looking to get her all patched up. I swear up and down that I bought some sort of "Rim Protection Plan" when I bought the car. Looking back at my paperwork, I cannot find it! Anyone know what this is called and what it covers? I remember the sleeze salesman saying it covered curb rash, so this would be perfect.

Thanks guys.

Most places call it Road Hazard, not Rim Protection.

I've never some across any type of warranty that covers curb rash, it mostly just covers damage done from potholes.

Thanks guys.
Only if the tire/rim is inoperable. I've had two flats repaired but the 3 rims I curbed just make me proud I parallel parked in Brooklyn

On the plus side it was only $150 for the 4 rims on my Sentra when I traded it; ask your dealer, they know those people. Makes them look like new.

The warranty most likely doesn't cover curb rash. It's meant to cover "road hazard" such as hitting a pot hole.

If you want insurance to pay for poor driving, that would be a comp claim on your car insurance.
