What Are Tire Mileage Warranties? by Best-One
When you buy a new set of tires, they come with a tire mileage warranty. The warranty is assigned by the manufacturer and serves as a basic guide regarding how long the tires are projected to last (under normal use) and what happens if that lifetime should turn out to be less than expected.
Warranties typically have a five or six year limit and a mileage range from 30,000 to 100,000 (depending on the type of tire). Most warranties apply only to the original owner and original vehicle, so it’s important that you keep your sales receipt. Your warranty may spare you from having to absorb the total cost of replacement if your tires’ longevity is diminished.
There are several variables that affect how long your tires will last:
Remember that good tread is vital to good traction on the road. Legally you must replace your tires when tread depth is down to 2/32nds of an inch, but for safety’s sake you may not want to wait until that point. If wear on your tires appears to be greater than you expect, you’ll want to consult your Best-One® dealer about your tire mileage warranty.
If your warranty is still active, the cost of new tires may be covered completely or prorated. Your Best-One professional will review your warranty and your vehicle’s maintenance to see if an adjustment can be made and will help you understand the warranty and select tires that will keep you motoring happily.
