Tire Tech 3 Year Passenger Car Replacement Program Overview
What is covered:
The tire has been used only on the vehicle on which it was originally installed
The tire has not been used in commercial service
Cosmetic damage(scrapes or small chunks-provided none of the steel radial cords are showing) is not covered by this program
How Will Prorated Charges Be Calculated?
Replacement price will be calculated by multiplying the tire’s advertised retail selling price at the time of adjustment by the percentage of usable original tread that has been worn off. You pay any other applicable taxes and government-mandated charges.
EXAMPLE: If your unrepairable tire had an original 8/32″ of usable treadwear and is worn to 4/32″ usable tread remaining, you have used 50% and therefore must pay 50% of the advertised retail selling price of the comparable tire. If the price of the new comparable tire is $120, the cost to you would be $60.00 plus F.E.T. (U.S. only) plus any other applicable taxes and government-mandated charges.
In order to keep this plan valid, we require you to have your tires regularly inspected and rotated per the recommendations per manufacturer vehicle standards as outlined in owner’s manual. Such proof should show the date, mileage, and servicing location. A sales receipt containing this information will suffice.
Tires must be operated at the proper tire inflation pressures as specified by the vehicle manufacturer and within tire/ vehicle load capacity and speed limitations. It is also your obligation to maintain proper wheel alignment and tire/wheel assembly balance.
To request a replacement tire or reimbursement, you must present the tire to Tire Tech. If unable to bring the damaged tire to Tire Tech because you are outside of our service area (50 miles), you may provide pictures of the tire as proof of damage. These pictures would include the DOT date code, brand, model and tire size of tire. Customer is still responsible to pay appropriate taxes, disposal fee, and mounting or balancing fee as required.
