Road Hazard Warranty

Simple Tire offers a Road Hazard Warranty for 10% of the price of the tire!

The Road Hazard Warranty* covers the first 25% of the tire's tread life or 1 year from date of purchase, whichever comes first.

* Road Hazard is available on all passenger tires except 40 series and below and 18 diameters and above. The series is the 'ratio' field and diameter is size of tire; if the tire is 225/70R15, the series is 70 and diameter is 15. If the ratio field is 40 or less or the diameter is 18 or higher, road hazard is not available. Road hazard is NOT AVAILABLE on any Light Truck (LT), Trailer (ST), Commercial, Industrial, Farm, Lawn/Garden, or OTR. Our program covers the replacement of your covered tire in the event that the tire is deemed non-repairable by a reputable auto service repair facility. More information can be found here.
Open Sidewall Splice

Open Sidewall Splice

A crack in the sidewall perpendicular to the bead. The opening will protrude in a diagonal direction toward the carcass plies. If ply cords are visible in the opening and are damaged, this condition was caused by a road hazard (cut) and is non-adjustable.

Sidewall Separation

Sidewall Separation

Occurs when the bond breaks down between the sidewall rubber and the ply cords. A bulge in the sidewall may appear. This condition is adjustable only if there is no bead damage (mounting), internal cord damage (impact damage), or underinflation/overload condition evident.

Cut or Snagged

Cut or Snagged

Cut or snag in sidewall or tread caused by coming in contact with a sharp road hazard object. Visible severed belt or ply cords will confirm this condition.

Separation Due to Puncture

Separation Due to Puncture

Any puncture can cause underinflation damage to a tire which will eventually lead to a separation. If a tire exhibits a puncture (or a previous repair) in an area which is separated, it is considered non-adjustable.

Rim Bruise

Rim Bruise

Cut or tear in the sidewall which occurs during severe underinflation or impact. It is caused by forcing the sidewall into the rim flange area. May or may not show signs on the outside in the form of a buldge and/or scuff but will usually have a small tear through the ply cords on the inside as shown.

Severe Impact

Severe Impact

Straight up and down tear in one of both sidewalls and possibly across the tread. It is generally a result of hitting a large road hazard object such as a curb or deep pothole.

Severe Impact

Tread Impact

Cut or tear on the inside of the tire in the tread area which occurs from hitting a road hazard object. May or may not show external signs of cuts/scuffs in the tread.
