Tire warranty
 
I got a nail in my side wall and went to a Michelin dealer and they would not do anything and told me to go to the dealer. Dealer told me there is no warranty on my tires. Not happy as almost all tires usually have road hazard warranty. Any thoughts.

factory tires never come with a warranty. when you buy the vehicle you can go to a tire dealer and purchse a warranty, alot of places will do that.

Most tires do not come with a road hazard warranty. Most tires come with a manufacturers warranty against defects in material and workmanship, which can include a pro-rated warranty for premature tread wear. Road hazards are considered outside of the manufacturer's control and they do not usually warrant against them. You can purchase road hazard protection at an additional cost, but it is not usually included with the purchase of the tire.

Tires included on new vehicles will generally have the least warranty coverage for defects and workmanship that they can get away with.

Here is a snippet from Goodyear's warranty page on their web site:

Quote:

WHAT IS NOT COVERED BY THIS WARRANTY?

This limited warranty does not cover the following:
  • Tires submitted for ride disturbance that are worn beyond the first 2/32" tread depth or beyond six (6) months from the date of purchase, whichever occurs first, or tires submitted for ride disturbance due to damaged wheels or any vehicle condition. Proof of purchase is required (see E. under Owner’s Obligations).
  • Goodyear does not warrant or give credit in any adjustment transaction for any kind of material added to a tire (e.g., tire fillers, sealants, balancing substances) after the tire leaves a factory producing Goodyear tires, nor will it adjust any tire that has failed as a result of adding such material.
  • Irregular wear or damage due to mechanical condition of the vehicle, improper inflation, overloading, high-speed spin-up, misapplication, misuse, negligence, racing, use of tire chains, improper mounting or demounting, improper repair, wreck, collision or fire.
  • Road hazards (includes, but not limited to, punctures, cuts, snags, impact breaks, etc.).
  • Any tire that, after leaving a factory producing Goodyear tires, has been intentionally altered to change its appearance (e.g., white inlay on a black tire or regrooved).
  • Tires removed from service due to improper repairs.
  • Tires with weather-cracking that were purchased more than four (4) years prior to presentation for adjustment or, if purchase date cannot be verified, manufactured more than four years prior to presentation for adjustment.
  • Loss of time, inconvenience, loss of vehicle use, incidental or consequential damages.

Interesting comment since in reality NO tires come with road hazard warranty from the manufacturer. ALL road hazard warranties are sold as insurance policies by the selling / installing dealer when they sell you new tires. Some shops may bundle it in so you don't see it as a separate line item on the bill but it is always a separate purchase, above and beyond the tire itself.

If you were in the US and near a Discount Tire you can go in with a new car and purchase a road hazard warranty for a pretty decent price. Other tire stores like NTB might have the same program.

You can get a road hazard warranty from chrysler that covers wheels and tires. I have seen srt8 owners get brand new wheels and tires after hitting curbs and potholes. Idk what it costs but it might be worth checking into.

I've seen some of those plans but they tend to be a bit pricy. The certificates at Discount are in the $30/tire range.
