4x4 Road Hazard Program
Yokohama 4x4 Tyre Road Hazard Warranty
Yokohama offers a free 4x4 tyre road hazard tyre replacement program, but we doubt you’ll need it. You see Yokohama 4wd tyres are high quality, puncture resistant and incredibly durable.
You can get free road hazard protection when you buy 2 or more Geolandar SUV (G055) Urban 4x4 tyres, Geolandar HT (G056), Geolandar HTS (G051) Highway Terrain tyres, Yokohama Geolandar ATS (G012) and Geolandar AT (G015) All Terrain tyres. So if you damage them on or off-road they’ll be repaired or replaced for free if you have a Yokohama Geolandar Road Hazard Certificate.
Yokohama Geolandar Road Hazard Certificates are offered at the time of purchase from participating Tyres & More stores, Bob Jane T-Marts or selected Yokohama Key Dealers.
The Yokohama Geolandar Road Hazard Program protects your 4WD tyres against:
Tyre kerb damage,
Tyre cuts, and
Tyre impact fractures.
The program is valid when you present a Road Hazard Certificate, within 24 months from the date of purchase and your tyres fit into the following tyre wear or tyre damage criteria:
1. Free tyre repair applies when:
A. It is safe to repair the tyre.
B. The remaining tread depth is greater than 50% of the original tread depth.
2. Free tyre replacement applies when:
A. The tyre cannot be safely repaired.
B. The tyres have greater than 75% of their original tread depth remaining. In this case the tyres will be replaced for free.
3. Pro rata tyre replacement applies when:
A. The tyre cannot be safely repaired.
B. The tyres have less than 75% but greater than 50% of the original tread depth remaining. In this case the cost of the replacement tyre will be equivalent to the amount of tread worn off the tyre as a percentage of the original purchase price.
4. Tyre replacement does not apply when:
A. Tyres have less than 50% of the original tread remaining.
B. Tyres are older than 24 months from the date of purchase.
