A bulge or bubble in the sidewall is sometimes the result of damage from coming into contact with a curb, pothole or other object. Evidence of this damage can be:
- a scuff mark on the sidewall near the bubble
- a dent or damage on the wheel above the bulge
- a cut or bruise on the inner liner of the tire in the vicinity of the bulge (the tire must be dismounted 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.
