Tyre Warranties

Manufacturer’s warranty

All Bridgestone tyres come with a manufacturer’s warranty that covers workmanship in manufacture on:

All New Zealand made tyres for five years from date of manufacture.

  • Imported Bridgestone-branded tyres and tubes for five years from date manufacture, and include tyres bearing the Bridgestone, Firestone, Supercat or Dayton brand.
  • Bridgestone New Zealand does not provide a manufacturer’s warranty on any Bridgestone tyre not imported by Bridgestone New Zealand.
Road Hazard Warranty

Not all punctures are repairable. In fact, simply running over a screw in your driveway could damage your tyre beyond repair. Then you can be forced to pay for another new tyre!

For just $13.50 per tyre, you can receive Road Hazard Warranty, which will make sure you’re covered for:

  • Free puncture repairs
Any repairable puncture will be fixed free of charge for the legal tread life of the tyre.
  • Free tyre replacement
If the tyre can’t be repaired we’ll fit a replacement and you’ll pay nothing within the first 12,000km or 12 months, whichever comes first.
  • Protection for the life of the tyre. 
For the remainder of the legal tread life of the tyre (after 12,000km or 12 months), if the tyre can’t be repaired, you will only pay for the tread you’ve used. For example, if you have only used 15% of the legal tread depth you will only pay 15% of the tyre’s current value to replace it.
How to make a claim

To claim a tyre replacement or free puncture repair through your Road Hazard Warranty, simply present your Road Hazard Warranty card (or your invoice) in-store. Alternatively / additionally you may be asked for your vehicle’s registration number to assist staff to find your warranty details.

Your Road Hazard Warranty can be claimed at the store where you purchased it, or any other Bridgestone Select, Firestone or Bridgestone Tyre Centre.

Why Bridgestone?

Safety is everything!

It’s easy to lose sight of the simple truth that tyres are one of the most critical safety features of any vehicle. At Bridgestone, your safety sits at the heart of everything we do.

Every year, Bridgestone invests more than $800 million in the research and development of our tyres. With thousands of hours of testing and refining these tyres using cutting edge technology, we continue to surpass global safety standards.

The proof is in the testing

Bridgestone HandPut yourself in safe hands
Did you know there’s the equivalent of only one handprint of tread connecting each of your tyres to the road? That’s just four areas of tread the size of your hand controlling thousands of kilograms of machinery travelling at great speed in all kinds of conditions.

Think about that!

The lives of you, your family and friends, everyone you care about are literally riding on just four handprints.

Our commitment:
We go to such great lengths because we are committed to your safety. When it comes to protecting you on the road, all of the research and development we undertake is to ensure that you’re in the safest hands possible. Whether it’s high performance technology, durability or all round comfort, there’s a Bridgestone tyre to keep you safe wherever you’re going.

Put yourself in safe hands in the care of the world’s number one tyre brand.

How to read your tyre size

Tyre Size Example

Tyre Size illustrationExample: 215/60R15

  • 215 is the width of the tyre in millimetres.
  • 60 is the aspect ratio or tyre profile. • R means it is radial construction.
  • 15 is the diameter of the wheel rim in inches.
  • Along with the manufacturer’s name and the name of the tyre (e.g. Bridgestone Ecopia), there’s always a set of numbers and letters that relate to the size of the tyre. Here’s a rundown on what those numbers mean:

What’s a tyre’s profile?

This relates to the depth of the sidewall (the wall at the side of the tyre). The profile is expressed as a percentage of the tyre’s width. Eg. Our 215/60R15 tyre has a profile or sidewall that is 60% of the 215mm (width). A low profile tyre is generally 50% or below, down to as little as 30% with ultra low profile tyres. Higher performance vehicles are usually fitted with tyres that have lower profiles.

While low profile tyres give you greater control and better handling on corners, they can give a slightly harder ride. Also, going to a lower profile on the same size wheels will alter your speedometer reading so you’ll need to fix that up before you hit the road.

To help New Zealand drivers make the best choice, government agency the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) and the New Zealand tyre industry have been working together on a consistent way of helping consumers identify fuel-efficient tyres.

ENERGYWISE approved fuel efficient tyres set a minimum criteria for both rolling resistance and braking in the wet. This means ENERGYWISE approved fuel efficient tyres are a simple way to identify tyres that meet ENERGYWISE standards for both fuel efficiency and braking in the wet – saving fuel and ensuring performance when safety really counts.
