  • The tire was purchased after June 1, 2011.
  • The tire is a size and speed rating equivalent to or greater than that specified by the vehicle manufacturer.

Basic Limited Warranty

The Basic Limited Warranty covers all tires in the following brands:

  • Primewell

A tire covered by the Basic Limited Warranty will be replaced with an equivalent new tire for a pro-rated purchase price if it becomes unusable for any reason within the manufacturer’s control under the following conditions:

  • There is no free replacement period.
  • Coverage extends up to 5 years (3 years for Primewell brand) from the date of purchase – proof of purchase date required. Without proof of purchase date, then 6 years (4 years for Primewell brand) from the date of tire manufacture. During this period, the tire will be replaced charging a pro-rated amount. To determine the replacement price, the percent of worn tread is multiplied by the retailer’s selling price for the replacement tire(s) at the time of the warranty transaction. The appropriate taxes, mounting, balancing, disposal fees, and other service charges may be added to the replacement price.
  • The tire must not be worn to 2/32 inch (1.6 mm) or less remaining original tread depth (i.e. worn down to the top of the built-in indicators in the tread grooves).
  • Exclusions apply – as identified in the section “What This Limited Warranty Does Not Cover.”
