response

If someone else's property damage insurer has the obligation to compensate that person for the damage lost. In other words , they have to put them back in the same "place" before the accident - no more than they were before the accident. Therefore , it is only necessary to replace the damaged tire . If it's a tire that was bald - the insurance company could have the price of a new tire , subtract the amount of difference of a new tire and a tire on the condition of the damaged and pay the difference . Most often, the insurance company will only pay for a new tire and be done with it . For the insurance company to pay for 4 new tires for the vehicle plaintiff would have to be an extreme situation in which the body shop doing the repair work reports that the balance / suspension, etc would be unnecessarily damaged or worn if only one tire was replaced. Very unlikely .

By the way , if you have an accident and the only thing damaged in your own vehicle is a tire, your insurance company most likely will not pay , even if it goes over your deductible. Most policies exclude damage to the tires only.
