Hi Hossain,


Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)


Before changing the tyres of your rental car, you should notify first your service provider. By doing so, you’d be able to know who will pay for it. Ultimately, you also need to check the terms and conditions of renting the car to know your rights and obligations.


If in case you damaged your rental car, there’s a chance that you have to pay for it or the insurer of the car will do it for you and the company.


In regards to who will pay for the changing of tyres, it is most likely the company since this is part of their obligation. However, other factors may also be considered such as if it is the fault of the driver or not.


Please speak to your service provider to obtain a more personalised answer.


I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.


Have a wonderful day!


Cheers,

Joshua
