    continental tire warrenty

    i have bought some continental gator skins, i have hardly 200km on them. Tonight i notice there was a little hole on the side wall and the inner tube is pertruding. a flat might happen soon. i was wondering if conti has some sort of warrenty and if so, does this case fall into warrenty. i hope it does.

    I'd be interested to know also. I've been using a pair for two flat free years now. A couple of days ago a drywall screw went through the side-wall and out of the top of the tire. Since it had a lot of miles on it I thought I should replace it. Bought a new one, put it on the bike and within three miles I had a flat. I inspected the tire and it had a small tear in the side-wall. I ran over a small rock, not glass or a nail or anything like that. Granted it may have been a freak accident but man was I disappointed, I really like those tires. Maybe they are cutting corners with the new ones, they sure cost more than the ones I bought a couple of years ago.

    Unless it was there to begin with. It ain't a warranty issue.

    If the hole appears to be the result of a defect, check with the shop where you bought the tire. If the hole is from something you picked up on the road while riding, you're probably out of luck. But consider a boot to reinforce the tire at the hole. Some folks here have commented that they have booted tires and ridden many miles--I mean, kilometers--on them.

    By the way, if the tube is protruding, you may be in for a rather startling blowout any day now. Boot the tire or replace it.

    I checked the Continental web site before my first post, but saw nothing about tire warranties. I just searched again for "warranty" or "guarantee" with the search function and nothing came up. Graham58 might be right, but I'd expect to see such information on the web site. Perhaps on the packaging?
