DriveGuard 1 Year Supplemental Road Hazard Limited Warranty

Bridgestone DriveGuard tires provide innovative tire performance benefits, including run-flat capability in the event of inflation pressure loss due to road hazard damage.

For additional peace of mind, the DriveGuard Supplemental RoadHazard Limited Warranty covers eligible tires that become damaged or unusable for any reason resulting from a road hazard (e.g. cut, snag, bruise, impact, or puncture). This limited warranty, given to promote goodwill, is a supplement to the Limited Warranty applicable to your tires.

Eligibility

The DriveGuard Supplemental RoadHazard Limited Warranty covers only the original purchaser. Proof of purchase is required in the form of an original invoice or receipt that must indicate the name of the purchaser, the purchase date, the vehicle mileage (odometer reading) at installation, and the retailer’s name and address. Only Bridgestone DriveGuard tires are covered, and each must meet all of the following criteria:

  • It was purchased new through an authorized Bridgestone retailer.
  • It was used only on the vehicle on which it was originally installed.
  • It meets or exceeds the vehicle manufacturer recommendations for size, load capacity, and speed rating.
  • It was mounted to a properly-sized wheel and used with a functioning tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
  • It was not used in commercial service.

The coverage period starts the date the tires are purchased and extends for a duration up to one of the following, whichever occurs first:

(a) the first 2/32-inch (1.6 mm) of tread wear,

(b) 20,000 kilometers of use,

or

(c) 12 months from the date of purchase.

If you receive a replacement tire under this DriveGuard Supplemental Road Hazard Limited Warranty, it will be covered by the tire manufacturer’s warranty or warranties, if any, given on that tire at that time.

What is Warranted

An eligible DriveGuard tire that becomes damaged or unusable for any reason resulting from a road hazard (e.g. cut, snag, bruise, impact, or puncture) will be repaired or replaced in the following manner:

  • Tires that can be repaired within Bridgestone and Rubber Association of Canada guidelines will be accordingly repaired free of charge.
  • Tires that cannot be repaired within Bridgestone and Rubber Association of Canada guidelines will be replaced with an equivalent new tire free of charge. This includes tires damaged from operation below 15 psi (100 kPa) due to a road hazard.

Whether an eligible tire is repaired or replaced, there is no charge for tire mounting, tire balancing, or performing an electronic reset of the TPMS. However, you are responsible for payment of applicable taxes and disposal fees, if any. Also excluded is coverage for any other parts or services, including but not limited to charges for road service, towing, alignment, rotation, and valve stem/TPMS components.

Tire service under the DriveGuard Supplemental Road Hazard Limited Warranty will only be performed at an authorized Bridgestone retailer, including where DriveGuard and other Bridgestone brand tires are sold.
