Is a Bubble/ 'Bulge on the sidewall of my tire covered by your warranty?


A bulge or bubble in the sidewall is sometimes the result of damage from coming in contact with a curb, pothole or other object. Evidence of this damage can be:

  1. a scuff mark on the sidewall near the bubble
  2. a dent or damage on the wheel above the bulge
  3. a cut or bruise on the inner liner of the tire in the vicinity of the bulge (the tire must be demounted in order to inspect the inner liner)

A tire that sustains any of the above injuries is damaged and is not covered under warranty.

However, your satisfaction is important to us and we request that you take the tire into a participating dealer for inspection to determine if warranty coverage applies.

Although not available online, we may be able to help you find a tire that fits your selection.

Please tell us the year, make and model of the vehicle for which you would like a tire recommendation. Also please let us know which tire features are important to you. Finally, let us know the area of the country where you do most of your driving. This way, we can provide you with our best recommendation.
