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.
This Limited Warranty applies only to consumers using the tire in the United States. For warranty conditions outside the United States, see your local Bridgestone or Firestone distributor. Obligations under this policy may not be enlarged or altered by anyone.

In order to keep this Limited Warranty valid, we require you to have your tires regularly inspected and rotated per the recommendations outlined in the sections of this manual entitled “Tire Damage, Inspection, and Service Life” and “Radial Tire Rotation,” and to furnish proof of same in order to receive an adjustment. Such proof should show the date, mileage, and servicing location. A sales receipt containing this information will suffice. In addition, a “Tire Maintenance Record” is included in this manual.
Tires must be operated at the proper tire inflation pressures as specified by the vehicle manufacturer and within tire/ vehicle load capacity and speed limitations. It is also your obligation to maintain proper wheel alignment and tire/wheel assembly balance.
To request an adjustment, you must present the tire to an authorized retailer. Complete and sign the customer section of the Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC Limited Warranty adjustment form and pay appropriate replacement price, taxes, disposal fee, and service charges, if any.
