7 On Your Side

Important note about tire warranty

Monday, May 27, 2013

If you have been out on the road for the long holiday weekend here is a question that could save you money. Did you have problems with your tires? Did the tread pull away from the tire or did bubbles appear? Well there's a good chance you are covered.

Pam Oakes, mechanic and author of Car Care For the Clueless said, "All makes and models of tires out there on your car today has a tire manufacturer warranty. People aren't aware of it. This should be conveyed to the consumer when they purchase their tires, but most often is not."

Most tire warranties do not cover road hazards like nails or pot holes, but most tire warranties cover normal wear for six years.

If you had an issue this weekend, check in with your dealership or tire store.
