Bridgestone South Africa guarantees to the purchaser of new Bridgestone branded passenger,4×4 and SUV tyres from 17 inch and above(excl. run flats), purchased from an authorised dealer (Bridgestone Dealers, Tiger Wheel & Tyre and Tyres & More ) within the boundaries of South Africa for a period of 1 (one) year after the purchase of the tyre (Date reflected on the invoice) should the Bridgestone branded passenger , 4×4 and SUV tyres become unserviceable as a result of road hazards encountered during transit, the tyres will be replaced with the customer only paying for the tread they have used.
The Bridgestone Free Tyre damage guarantee is only valid for 1 year from date of purchase
and registration of a new qualifying tyre.
The Bridgestone Free tyre damage guarantee covers Bridgestone branded passenger, 4×4 and SUV tyres from 17 inch and above( excl. run flats) for road hazard damage subject to the state of the usable tread, with the customer only paying for the tread they have used.
“Road Hazards” are cuts, bruises, impact or irreparable punctures and tyre damage caused by rocks, broken glass, potholes or curbs. The tyre’s remaining tread life (usable tread) is established using a tread depth gauge. The average remaining depth of the tread is then divided into the tyre’s tread depth when new. The result of this calculation gives us a ratio and the ratio is used to determine the credit amount.
Calculation example for credit amount:
A Bridgestone branded 17 inch passenger tyre costs R1000 and has an original tread depth of 8mm. When the tyre is submitted there is 6mm tread remaining.
Calculation example for credit amount (continued):
=remaining tread depth / original tread depth = usable tread %
=usable tread % x tyre purchase price
= credit amount
=75% * R1000
You will receive a credit of R750 towards the purchase of your new tyre; therefore you would only pay R250 towards a new tyre.
* Tyres with a tread depth that is 1mm or less are not legible for a claim.
After purchasing your Bridgestone branded passenger, 4×4 and SUV tyres from 17 inch and above (Excl. run flats) from Tiger Wheel & Tyre or Tyres & More your purchase will be automatically registered.
Should your Bridgestone branded passenger, 4×4 and SUV tyres from 17 inch and above (excl. run flats) become damaged by a road hazard during use, try and return to the dealer where you purchased] your tyre, however if this is not possible then visit your nearest authorised dealer that is part of the same network of stores where the original purchase was made.
