Impressed with the Goodyear Warranty!

I know this has been written about before but I just wanted to say that the Goodyear warranty for our tires (LS2 specifically) is pretty awesome. I have driven my car for 900 miles on LS2's and got my first bubble over the weekend (inevitable i know). I have the tire and wheel insurance through BMW, but tried out the Goodyear warranty first since the BMW insurance has the $50 deductible. Anyway, I called Goodyear, got a claim number, they called the nearest tire store (Mavis), and they put a new tire on for free, mounting and balancing included, I paid nothing!!!

However, the Goodyear rep told me that all new Goodyear tires no longer have Road Hazard warranties anymore, but 2012 vehicles equipped with Goodyear tires before November 2012 are "Grandfathered" so to speak. I think after the first year the warranty becomes prorated based on usage on the tire. Either way pretty good coverage that we should all be aware of.
