Bad wheel bearing, will the dealership cover it.

Alright, so I have a 2010 2dr. Jk with a little over 15,000 miles, and I noticed that the front driver side wheel bearing is making noise, and I figure that its only a matter of time before it completely goes.

My question is will the dealership warranty the bearing, because my jeep has a 3.5" lift and 35" BFG KM2'S? Or will they try to void my warranty saying the larger tires were the cause.

Any input would be great or personal experiences would help.

Thanks.

I think it's a 50/50 chance that they will void the warranty on just the wheel bearing, because of the 35" tires, not the lift

its dealer specific. I had a hub fail on me, causing my ABS to kick on at random and almost wrecking me twice. He replaced the part under warranty, but he charged me 50 bucks to remove a wheel spacer because it was extra work not covered by the "book".
