NOT APPLICABLE TO TIRES PURCHASED IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK.
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 Road Hazard 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 warranty, given to promote goodwill, is a supplement to the Limited Warranty applicable to your tires.
The DriveGuard Supplemental Road Hazard 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 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) 12,000 miles of use,
(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 Manufacturers Association guidelines will be accordingly repaired free of charge.
- Tires that cannot be repaired within Bridgestone and Rubber Manufacturers Association 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.

Conditions and Exclusions
To the extent permitted by law, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC disclaims liability for any incidental or consequential damages, loss of time, loss of vehicle use, or inconvenience, and any implied warranty, including implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
The DriveGuard Supplemental Road Hazard Limited Warranty applies only to tires purchased, used, and presented for coverage (under the terms of this warranty) in the United States. Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC’s obligations under this warranty may not be enlarged or altered by anyone.
In accordance with Federal Law, this warranty has been designated as a “Limited Warranty.” Nothing in the DriveGuard Supplemental Road Hazard Limited Warranty is intended to be a representation by Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC that tire failures cannot occur.
Tire inflation pressures must be set to the specifications established by the vehicle manufacturer. Check tire pressure with a gauge every month and before long trips or when carrying extra load. Determine the cause and extent of an inflation pressure loss as soon as possible, especially after an alert from the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
