Ya I also declined the protection package, it’s a shame Pirelli wouldn’t cover it especially with only 2000km on the tireSorry to hear.
Unless you purchased some kind of tire or wheel protection package from the dealership or elsewhere, you will likely have to pay out of pocket to have it fixed. A pothole in the road is classified as a "road hazard" and you would have to have specific coverage. Look into the possibility of getting tire coverage, even though it's not brand new anymore you may still be able to add it. That was the impression I was given when I declined all protection packages at two dealerships when I negotiated my GT.
I am looking into that right now, I also wanna go a bit wider than stock. Maybe to 255I would probably suggest looking into getting better tires since you're already shopping around for a tire replacement. Something that is more durable and last longer while also providing better grip.
Just something to consider.
I’m stuck on whether I should do a set of winters and summers, or just get something that I can stick with all year around. The winters usually aren’t crazy up here, but you never knowWas looking at tires for my summers and narrowed it down to Continental extreme contact DWS and Firestone firehawk Indy 500.
Pirelli does not cover unless you get an extra tire warranty.. been there, done that and they aren't cheap lolSo I ran into a stupid pothole in the pouring rain going about 70km/h. Now there’s a bulge in the sidewall of my front left tire. Pretty frustrating since I just got the car a month ago.
Does anyone know if Pirelli will cover this?
Their warranty would likely only cover any manufacturers defect or recall issues with the tire itself. The fact that you stated you hit a pot hole in the road makes it impossible for them to even begin to entertain any warranty claim, despite the low mileage. If you claimed it was just like that one morning and no pot holes were hit, you may have an argument until it’s inspected and proven otherwise. Warranty often sounds good but the hoops to jump through when it comes to a claim can be painful.Ya I also declined the protection package, it’s a shame Pirelli wouldn’t cover it especially with only 2000km on the tire
