Here’s the deal: TreadWright’s new road hazard warranty
TreadWright has announced a new 24-month optional Road Hazard Warranty Certificate to protect drivers when their tires fail thanks to road hazards like potholes, debris and nails.
Available on all new TreadWright tire purchases, including LT Metric sizes, the company calls its new warranty the “best value on the road”. TreadWright also offers a two-year Workmanship Warranty on all its tires, guaranteeing customers are covered against any defects or errors in the remolding process.
So what’s covered?
TreadWright says it recognizes there are many unforeseen road hazards drivers encounter through the regular use of their vehicle causing tires to fail prematurely. The Road Hazard Warranty covers a variety of road surfaces and conditions, including paved highways, normal off-road driving conditions, sand, or snow. Tires damaged by glass, nails, screws, or other debris are covered by the Road Hazard Warranty.
The warranty is also available on all new purchases of TreadWright tires making it the only light truck road hazard warranty in the industry.
“When combined with this new optional warranty, our customers are not only covered on the manufacturing end with our workmanship warranty, they’ll also be covered for anything else the road can throw at them,” said TreadWright chief executive Anthony Showen.
What happens when the customer makes a claim?
TreadWright customers who opt to purchase the Road Hazard Warranty Certificate are covered for 24 months from the date of purchase or until 2/32” or less of tread remains (whichever occurs first).
If the tire can be repaired, the customer takes it to any licensed tire service provider and up to $25 per tire will be reimbursed. If replacement is necessary, TreadWright will replace the tire during the first 12 months of coverage. If a make and model is not available, a reimbursement is issued for the amount of the original tire purchase.
During the last 12 months of coverage customers are reimbursed for the remaining tread depth on the tire to 2/32”.
