So you guys know, if you bought your car new from Ford (which I'm sure most of us did), it comes with a 12,000mi road hazard warranty.

Problem is, my dealership can't get a hold of any 205/40-17 Potenzas, as this tire size is quite uncommon.

Good guy Ford for covering this, though! I wasn't expecting that kind of coverage without paying for it separately.

Did a bit of research on the ford website....seems this would not be covered by the warranty. Straight from the book.

depth (i.e. worn down to the top of the built-in indicators in the tread

6 years from the date of tire manufacture), for any reason other than
those excluded in the section entitled

Holy screw, Batman!

Total bummer! But I have to ask.... HOW!?
I heard something hit the bottom of the car and it sounded like it was big. Checked the mirror to see if anything was bouncing around behind the car and then the TPMS alarm went off. Looks like the front passenger tire picked the bolt off the ground, it bounced off the chassis and then the rear passenger tire caught it. Just my luck! :cool:

I found the same thing, as well. The road hazard warranty is covered by a company called Genesis. My dealership gave me their phone number and they had my claim number already on file when I called the next business day.

I know how you feel...I remember buying the 1st year SHO and it seemed to pick up every nail, spike, and chunk of sharp metal on the road (which were many driving in the Cleveland, Ohio metro area). I really got tired of replacing those tires because of road hazards, and the OEM tires were hard to find back then, too. Good luck with your tire situation...
