Standard Limited Warranty
Every tire, tube and wheel supplied by Tireco is warranted to be free from defects in materials and workmanship subject to the terms, conditions and limitations as stated below. If our examination of a warrantable product determines that the product has failed due to a defect in materials or workmanship, we will make a reasonable allowance toward the purchase of a new product at current prices or other adjustment within our discretion. Adjustments will be made on a pro-rata basis determined by the amount of usage or service received by the product and will be based on the most recent purchase price (proof of purchase is required).
TERMS, CONDITIONS, AND LIMITATIONS
Any product, no matter how well constructed, may fail in service or become unserviceable due to conditions beyond the control of the manufacturer. Under no circumstance is this Standard Limited Warranty a representation that a tire, tube, or wheel failure cannot occur.
WHAT IS COVERED:
This Standard Limited Warranty is only applicable to products sold in and used on vehicles registered & operated in the United States, U.S. Territories, Canada, and Mexico. In addition, this Standard Limited Warranty is applicable only to the original purchaser of the product, and is not transferable. The costs of mounting, balancing and other associated services as well as any applicable Federal, State or Local taxes are not covered by this Standard Limited Warranty.
