Warranty of Tyres

Case 3_Puncture shoulder

This puncture occurred at an area known as the "shoulder"- which is the joint between the tyre "sidewall" and "tread". No warranty since it is again, not a manufacturing defect. FYI, any incident of a foreign object impact/ penetrate/ puncture/ fracture of the tyre will render the tyre out of warranty scope.

If you ever encounter a puncture on the sidewall of the tyre, and especially on the shoulder of your tyre, please do not attempt to repair it. The sidewall is the weaker part of a tyre, and the shoulder is the "achilles heel" of a tyre.

Note: If you ever spot a nail in your tyre, do not remove it. Doing so would stop the natural plug of the nail, resulting in immediate leakage from the puncture.
