WHAT IS COVERED BY THE TIRE PROTECTION PLAN LIMITED WARRANTY
The tire protection plan warranty is valid for a period of 3 years or until any portion of the tire is worn to 2/32 of an inch or less, whichever occurs first. Tire Replacement: If a tire becomes unserviceable because of a road hazard during the useable tread life of the tire, it will be replaced with a new tire. If available, an exact make/model replacement tire will be installed. If not available, a comparable quality tire will be installed. If the tire failure occurs within the first 33% of useable tread wear, and cannot be safely repaired per manufacturer’s guidelines, the tire will be replaced with coverage up to 100% of the original price paid for the tire. After the first 33% of useable tread wear, you will be charged for the consumed useable tread wear on the original tire, times the original selling price of the tire. You will be responsible for any taxes, mounting, balancing, and any other miscellaneous fees. When the tread is worn down to 2/32” the tire is considered worn out and is not eligible for adjustment. If you want road hazard warranty on the replacement tire, you must purchase a new road hazard warranty for the new tire. Tire Repair: If your tire is damaged due to a road hazard and can be safely repaired, the tire will be repaired per manufacturer’s guidelines at any participating facility. The warranty will cover up $20.00 to have the tire repaired. The road hazard warranty will remain in effect after a tire is repaired.
