Is wheel damage covered by insurance?

Does insurance cover tires? While car insurance doesn’t cover damage from normal wear and tear on tires, comprehensive coverage and collision coverage can pay for your tires when they are affected by vandalism, theft, or an accident.

Why do you only stab out 3 tires?

Because their insurance won’t cover just 3. For insurance to cover tire replacement, it has to be all 4. Insurance will cover if all 4 are slashed; they won’t cover 3 tires.
