Post  aln on Fri May 28, 2010 9:07 pm

my wife had a blown tire while driving this morning which was just less than 1km from our house. there were no signs of puncture, as in me crack lang. i already informed my SA and he said that he'll get back to me tomorrow. separate warranty claim daw yun. sana nga at under warranty pa....

we went to bridgestone at the fort to have the blown tire checked as advised by our SA. unfortunately, after being checked we found out that the tire was deliberately slashed which caused the tire to blow. mukhang na modus operandi si misis kasi malapit sa vulcanizing shop nangyari. since hindi sumabog yung tire on itself, it is not covered by the warranty. bibili tuloy kami ng gulong!!! hay naku talaga yung mga taong walang magawang matino!

ingats na lang tayo lagi!!

can i claim warranty for old tire?

Post  jb2010 on Mon Jul 16, 2012 5:48 pm

Good day GL owners. I have a problem with the tires of my GL (Luxury). I acquired my GL around March 2010. Meron kasi ako one (front-right) tire na sumabog. I recall na parang nalubak lang ako ng konti, tapos sumabog na yung gilid nya, nagkaroon ng gash na around 2 inches. First time na nangyari sa akin ito. Pinatapalan ko sa vulcanizing shop, pero I decided na bibili ako ng at least 2 na new tires, kasi ayoko na gamitin yung sumabog na gulong for safety reasons, and mapipilitan ako na dalawang bago yung bilhin para medyo balanse yung gulong ko sa harap. The stock tire is a Bridgestone B250 (185/55/R15) and wala na raw stock dito sa Pinas non. Stock tire kasi preference ko para stick ako sa original specs. Sabi ng NMPI, pati na rin ng Bridgestone, imported from Japan daw yung ganong tires. NMPI said na nag-order na raw sila, while Bridgestone says na phased out na raw yon, medyo conflicting. Medyo curious din ako kung bakit sumabog yung tire ko, kasi around 2.5 years pa lang naman and city driving lang, di rin laspag yung gamit, di naman pudpod na pudpod, nasa 30k pa lang mileage. Doon ko pa lang chineck yung production date ng stock tires at medyo nagulat ako kasi yung prod dates ng gulong ay 2708, which, sabi ng mga napagtanungan ko, stood for 27th week of 2008. Nireklamo ko sa nissan kasi I felt that they gave me old tires na baka questionable pa yung quality. At the very least ay dapat 10 (or 2010) yung last two digits ng gulong ko kasi march 2010 ko kinuha. Sabi rin ng mga ibang kakilala ko, kapag kukuha ka ng tire, dapat bagong bago ang production date, kasi tire manufacturers always use this as an important basis in determining the status of the tire. Kahit daw nasa storage or di ginagamit, basta na-produce na, nagsisimula na yung degradation ng tire dahil exposed na sa iba't ibang elements. I am still waiting for updates sa mga taga nissan un avenue for this. Will surely appreciate any inputs regarding this, or if you have similar experience. Maraming salamat and God keep all of us safe always.

Good day mga ka loopers. I had a problem with my stock tire sa GL (Bridgestone B250). Thank goodness at hindi naman sumabog. Prone itong tires na ito ma flat, madaling maturok ng kahit maliit na turnilyo. I already had 4 vulcanizing job done with the tires in 2years. Ipalagay na lang natin one for each tire. Ngayon malapit na mag 3years si Livi (GL) ko, one of my tire looses air slowly. Nung pina check ko, wala naman puncture. Pero, eto yung catch, oblong daw, then meron mga punit dun sa tire threads, na parang na stretch ng husto. Bumibigay na yung thread sa loob ng tires.

I am now using my spare tire as a replacement. I know it's a mortal sin to drive around without a spare tire. Konting ipon and time para makapag palit ng gulong. Ang gastos, since i need to buy 5 tires including the spare. Hoping wala naman sanang maging problema while nag iipon pangbili ng tires.

Bridgestone B250 tire; 185/65 R15; year manufactured 2008; thread dept is about 50% remaining (estimate ko lang).

Sir yoogix, ganyan din experience ko with the tires of my GL (B250 185/55). Prone ma-flat sa mga turnilyo at small nails, at yung isa naman ay nagkaroon ng gash sa gilid, nalubak lang ako ng konti ay bumigay. 2008 din prod date ng mga tires, and kung almost three years na unit mo, late 2009 early 2010 mo siguro ito nabili. Yung sa akin, i bought it march 2010. Nagreklamo na nga ko sa nissan, bakit parang substandard ang quality ng gulong at in-emphasize ko rin dapat near the purchase date ng GL yung prod date ng gulong kasi tinitingnan din yung manufacturing date sa pag-assess ng status ng gulong. Lugi naman yung buyer, sabi ko tulad nung sa case ko almost two years na yung gulong na kinabit sa unit ko, hassle yon once na-produce na yung tire, nagsisimula na yung life span ng tire, regardless kung naka-stock lang or ginagamit na, kaya insist ko na misleading yon na sasabihin nila na brand new yung tire. Latest update sa akin ay naghahanap sila ng local supplier para kumuha ng advice sa Bridgestone B250, imported from Japan daw kasi. Wala rin stock nito dito dre, sabi ng bridgestone phased out na raw. Pinipilit ko ma-warranty, sana nga, hehehe. Post ako ng updates kung ano mangyayari. Kung swertehin (hopefully), baka pwede rin sa iyo ito kung under warranty pa unit mo. Yung sa akin pwede pa yata kasi mababa lang mileage ko at under three years din.

Sir jb2010, tama ka 2009 ko na acquire GL namin. Una ko na itong napansin, yun daw kasi kasama talaga ng GL from NMPI. Pinapapalitan ko noon pero di daw pwede, kung gusto ko daw trade-in ko hehehe di ako pumayag. Anyway, sabi ko sarili ko gamitin ko na lang muna hanggang maluma.

Sir Bin Deisel, I have been scouting around sa mga reviews sa tires, so far eto yung mga na co-consider ko na tires na may size the same as oem sa GL. They have very good reviews on balance between performance and comfort:

Pirelli Cinturato P1
Bridgestone Turanza GR90
Bridgestone Turanza ER300 or T001

I have no idea sa prices pa, pero since these are premium brands, I am expecting price range of 4k to 6k a piece.

Hello LOOPers. About the issue that I raised regarding old production date ng stock tires, I got a slightly positive na response. NMPI finally sent me a letter to explain their side and address my concerns. Sabi ni NMPI i-reimburse nila yung 50% of the amount I paid in replacing my two busted tires. Originally, i told them that I would need to replace four tires, because hindi ako confident sa quality ng tires considering yung old production date, and para may peace of mind ako. Also, dahil imported yung tires at walang stock dito, baka mapilitan ako na complete set of four tires of a different brand and/or design bilhin ko so that matched lahat. I haven't actually purchased any replacement tire, yet, medyo may konting mixup sa details ng letter, pero in short, may libre ako isang gulong. Regarding the old production date, their explanation is that this normally happens kung imported ang tires at stocked sa warehouse, which is the same daw sa routine nila for Completely Knocked Down parts. Was aiming to have at least two na free tires, pero ayos na siguro to, baka tumagal na naman yung process at nakaka-stress din mangulit, hehehe. Their letter also said that their standard warranty for tires is 3 years (limited warranty). Although kapag mag-file ka ng warranty, the tire supplier would be the one handling it. Sa kaso ko, si bridgestone. They checked all my tires for free. Ang problem lang, sabi nila na void na agad yung warranty dahil may mga tama na yung gulong ko. Ilang beses na rin na-vulcanize yung mga gulong ko, at yung gash sa gilid, ganon din pinagawa ko sa vulcanizing shop sa tabi tabi. Pag ganon ay automatically voided na raw warranty. Dapat daw kapag may butas or gash, sa isang accredited bridgestone center lang ipatingin at ipagawa, which is quite impractical really.

By weekend plan ko bili ng 4 tires. I browsed the posts sa mags and tire uprade topic ng forum natin, and swak sa budget and requirements (comfort and safety) yung recommendation ni sir eggy_reyes - Yokohama C-drive 205/60 R15. Yung stock tire ko is Bridgestone B250 185/65 R15 (mali yung naunang post ko na 185/55). As per eggy_reyes' observation, ayos naman daw ito sa GL natin at di masyadong mahal. Ang cheapest so far nakita ko ay sa Yokohama Commonwealth - P3,650. This is for C drive2. Meron P3,450 sa Yokohama North Edsa pero C drive 1, yung older na series pa yata ito. Hanap pa ko ng ibang mas mura.

Salamat and good day sa lahat! Smile

@ jb2010, nice to know na kahit papano eh meron ka makukuha from Nissan. ganun naman ata talga pag bumili tayo ng auto, dealers put the basic parts to minimize cost. kung gusto mo papalitan ng mas magandang gulong eh additional cost na yun since upgrade ang lumalabas, hehehe.
