Tire Warranty

I know BMW won't cover it, but is there a tire warranty on our Michelins? Had a blowout and would be nice to recoup the $400....

They do have a warranty, but there's a bunch of criteria you need to meet. First and foremost, it has to be a manufacturing defect, which is hard to prove. Then you have a time limitation (usually a year), and treadwear limitation (usually first 2/32nds or something ridiculous like that). Read the manual for details and see if you qualify. What happened? Road hazard or just all of a sudden? I thought unexplicable blowouts with radial tires and TPMS were a thing of the past. If you hit something, then you're on your own. Good luck man.

Well, it was even more fun....had a screw in the tire and it was low, so I put some more air into it to try to go get it repaired (you know, no spare ) and as I was headed to the shop, i got the blow out....so definitely on my own, but figured it didn't hurt to ask.
