This Tire Road Hazard Program (“Program”) is included with new tires sold by centers participating in the BMW Tire Center Program and is administered by Sonsio Management, Inc. (“Program Administrator”).
The Seller of the tires covered by this complimentary Program is identified by name and address on the original purchase invoice (“Original Invoice”), which is attached to and made a part of these Program terms and conditions (“Program Benefit Statement”).
WHAT TIRES ARE ELIGIBLE: The benefits of this Program are available only for (A) the tires (i)
purchased by you, the Customer, from a center participating in the BMW Tire Center Program
("Participating Center"), and (ii) that are listed clearly on the Original Invoice, identified by the listed
part number(s) and Department of Transportation ("DOT") number(s), and (iii) while installed on your
vehicle identified by year, make, model and Vehicle Identification Number ("VIN") on the Original
Invoice ("Eligible Tires"); and (B) tires that replace Eligible Tires pursuant to the Program ("Eligible
Replacement Tires") subject to the same identification and requirements that would apply for the
original Eligible Tire. This Program is limited to the replacement of Eligible Tires and Eligible
Replacement Tires damaged by a road hazard as described below.
TERM OF PROGRAM BENEFITS: This Program covers Eligible Tires for a term of 12 months from the date on your Original Invoice for the tires, or until any part of the tire tread that comes in contact with the road has a tread depth of 2/32” or less, whichever occurs first (“Program Benefit Term”). Eligible Replacement Tires will be covered under this Program for the remainder of the original Eligible Tire’s Program Benefit Term. The Program Benefit Term will not be extended or determined by the installation date of the Eligible Replacement Tire.
WHAT IS ROAD HAZARD DAMAGE? Road hazard damage occurs when a tire fails as a result of a puncture, bruise, or impact break incurred during the course of normal driving on a road maintained by state or local authority. Nails, glass, and potholes are the most common examples of road hazards.
WHERE YOU CAN OBTAIN SERVICE: Whenever possible you should return your vehicle to the original selling center. If you cannot return your vehicle to the original selling center, you may contact the Program Administrator at 866.330.7569 during normal business hours to receive assistance locating the nearest Participating Center. If you do not follow the Program Administrator’s instructions, your claim may not be eligible.
TIRE REPLACEMENT: If, during the Program Benefit Term, an Eligible Tire is damaged due to a valid road hazard, it will be replaced by the Participating Center with an exact make/model of tire if available. If not available, a comparable quality tire will be installed. When an Eligible Tire failure occurs in the first 12 months of ownership, the Eligible Tire will be replaced with coverage up to the original purchase price of the tire or the replacement tire cost, whichever is less. In no event shall 100% coverage exceed $600.00 per Eligible Tire or Eligible Replacement Tire. You are responsible for any additional charges including, but not limited to, mounting, balancing, taxes, and miscellaneous fees.
WHAT YOU MUST DO TO MAKE A CLAIM WHEN AN ELIGIBLE TIRE IS DAMAGED:
The benefits of this complimentary Program are secondary to any other motor club contracts and/or vehicle service contracts you may have purchased that provide reimbursement for damaged tires and/or wheels. When an Eligible Tire is damaged by a road hazard and another company provides any reimbursement for the tire, the maximum amount reimbursable under this Program will be less the amount reimbursed under the motor club or vehicle service contract. If any other motor club contract and/or vehicle service contract exists but the terms of that contract(s) clearly states that it is secondary, the Program Administrator will pay 50% of the eligible reimbursement amount described in the Tire Replacement section of this Program.
THE PROGRAM ADMINISTRATOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DENY ANY CLAIM SUBMITTED WITH FALSE OR MISLEADING INFORMATION OR IF THE PAPERWORK DOES NOT CLEARL IDENTIFY THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER, VEHICLE, AND TIRES, OR IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO PROVIDE THE ORIGINAL INVOICE.
TRANSFER: This Program is extended only to you, the original purchaser of the Eligible Tire(s) and may not be transferred to anyone who purchases your vehicle or tires during the term of this Program. The benefits of this Program are not transferable to any other vehicle or tires.
DRIVING OVER ROUGH OR DAMAGED ROAD SURFACES, AS WELL AS DEBRIS, CURBS AND OTHER OBSTACLES CAN CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE TO WHEELS, TIRES AND SUSPENSION PARTS. THIS IS MORE LIKELY TO OCCUR WITH LOW–PROFILE TIRES, WHICH PROVIDE LESS CUSHIONING BETWEEN THE WHEEL AND THE ROAD. BE CAREFUL TO AVOID ROAD HAZARDS AND REDUCE YOUR SPEED, ESPECIALLY IF YOUR VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH LOW-PROFILE TIRES. PERFORMANCE TIRES MAY WEAR FASTER DEPENDING ON DRIVING STYLE AND DRIVING CONDITIONS AND MAY ALSO BE MORE COSTLY TO REPLACE THAN NON–PERFORMANCE TIRES OF THE SAME SIZE. FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE REFER TO THE TIRE MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY MANUAL PROVIDED WITH THE VEHICLE.
BMW Accessory Wheels that are installed on/in the vehicle prior to the delivery to the client will carry the full New Vehicle Limited Warranty. If the installation is made by a Dealer after the retail sale of the vehicle, the accessory will carry the remainder of the New Vehicle/SAV Limited Warranty period or the limited parts warranty for two years from the date of installation, whichever is greater. Warranty repairs do not constitute an extension of the original limited warranty period for the vehicle or any parts (including accessories) thereof.
