It should be covered under you the Collision portion of your policy.

Report it to your carrier ASAP, because they have the right to inspect any damage before you repair it.

Two years ago a pickup truck in front of me on the freeway lost a complete tire and wheel. I ran over it with the passenger side front tire, rear duals and the toad too.

Couldn't dodge it as it was still rolling around and I was on a bridge with an 18 wheeler right beside me.

Destroyed my front leveling jack and tore the plastic air flow assembly off the bottom of my toad.

About $3,000 in damage...AAA covered it all.

The drive shaft was seriously damaged and the rv was towed to the shop. They are only one of two anywhere near where we are that can make the repairs. So we have no choice but to have them repair it. I fully expect the repair cost to be major. The biggest problem is we don’t know how long it will take and we need to find accommodations during all this. I’m also sure the cost will be well above our deductible. Chuck

If you knew that before you posted it really should not have been difficult decision to call your insurance company. If not this, what are you paying for?

Re-treads should be outlawed.
Most road gators are not retreads.

That is my experience as well. Drove truck for 43 yrs and approx. 4 million miles. Firstline tires separate and came to pieces more than retreads, however depends on quality. My experience with retreads was excellent, company only retreaded there own casings and used Bandag retreaders and never on Michelin casings. Any tire can separate and peel.
