All cars are insured for the repair of tires (we do the repair for free) only, any damage on the tire is not covered as such damages happen off roads usually, the metallic part of the wheels and anything connected on this wheel (suspension-scissor) are not covered too as they are considered under parts.

E group cars=Toyota Corolla-Avensis-Renault Cabrio-Colt cabrio-Astra cabrio-Micra cabrio are not covered for tyres and underpart of vehicle. Any damage under the engine-such as “carter of oil” is not insured, the driver has to drive the car on asphalt roads where there is no possibility this part to be damaged!
