Ummm… you might have a shot … until they pull an ear of corn out from inside your tire… then not so much… good luck!

Not too sound like an a$$ but you expect a tire that you damaged while driving your truck in a manner not consistent with what the tire was designed for to be covered under a warranty that applies to a defect in materials or workmanship? I'm pretty sure your answer will be no. If you omit to tell them how you damaged it they might consider it but they will look at the wear patterns of all the tires to determine if the tires are being used improperly. Simply put if you drive your truck like an a$$ and something gets damaged it's on you to fix and repair it.

You will have to take it to a Goodyear shop and they will prorate it based on tread wear (maybe). Then when you get the new tire do your self a favor and buy the tire road hazard warranty. $15 per tire, you'll be glad you did.

The auto dealerships do not warranty tires
they will send you to the tire company

My tires and rims have a warranty. Came with the extended warranty I purchased.

Wrangler SR-A's are designed for comfort, quiet ride and fuel economy. Also, they are relatively inexpensive. Those are the reasons they are often original equipment tires on SUV's and light duty trucks. However, they are not off-road tires and they are easy to blow.

It is also not a great idea to go offroad without lowering the air pressure in the tires. Street pressure can be bad for most any tire when you go offroad where there are sharp objects.
