Let's start with the Maintenance agreement. It's VERY important.

YOU CAN ALSO ASK ABOUT OUR EXTENDED AREA TIRE PROTECTION PLAN. FOR JUST $2.50 PER TIRE, YOU CAN HAVE PIECE OF MIND NO MATTER WHERE YOU TRAVEL. WITH THE SAME SMITHS TIRE COVERAGE AT OVER 50,000 SERVICE FACILITIES NATIONWIDE, YOU CAN TRAVEL WITH CONFIDENCE!

We know you aren't a tire expert. That's what you pay us for right? Well, to explain your warranty and the best way to get the most our of your purchase, we will explain the maintenance and warranty that you are getting free of charge with your purchase.

You new tires are designed to fit you. Some are made for longevity, some are made for traction. Make sure and express to your Smiths Tire Representative what you want from your tires.

If your tire carries a manufacturer treadwear warranty, it will be honored by Smiths Tire Sales as long as the maintenance agreement has been followed.

Should you have an issue with premature wear, Smiths Tire Sales will inspect the tire(s) in question in order to verify that it is due to a manufacturers defect that these tires didn't provide full tread life.

Many things can also affect how a tire wears also. If it is determined that an issue with your automobile has caused the premature wear of the tires, then warranty is not possible.

The following will exclude treadwear warranty coverage:

Wear due to improper vehicle alignment including but not limited to,    uneven, cupping, irregular, spotty, and feathering wear. • Damage due to:  a) Rim irregularities or rim damage.  b) Snow chains.  c) Vehicle mechanical problems, including brake problems, and vehicle wheel alignment.  d) Extreme temperature exposure.  e) Negligent and abusive driving such as tire spinning, or racing.  f) Improper tire storage.  g) Automotive accident.  h) Chemical corrosion or fire.  i)  Use contrary to the vehicle manufacturer’s tire recommendations.  j) Improper stud size and/or installation.  k) Improper mounting or demounting.  l)  Alteration: such as, but not limited to, adding a white inlay on blackwall, tread regrooving, tire truing or siping, or adding sealant materials to the tire.  m) Weather checking/cracking: not covered after 24 months from the date of purchase.

If it is determined that a manufacturers defect is responsible for the loss of treadwear, Smiths Tire Sales will warranty the unused part of the tire(s) in question. Customer will be responsible to pay an equal percentage to what has been worn off tire to get a new tire. If you have worn 50% off, then you will only pay 50% of the tires current market value.

If tires are Ironman brand, tire(s) can be replaced same day if it is in stock.

If another brand, the tire(s) will need to be sent in for adjustment. This could take 2-3 weeks, depending on manufacturer. If new tire is desired before adjustment period expires, customer will have to pay full amout for new tire(s) and receive credit back from Smiths Tire Sales when manufacturer releases credit to us.

First, and foremost, what qualifies?

We want to start by breaking your protection plan down into three parts:

1. Maintenance agreement

2. Road Hazard Protection

3. Treadwear Warranty


1. The only tires that qualify for our free maintenance agreement are new tires that are purchased in a set (4 on a car or 6 on a dually). The tires must be purchased from Smith's Tire Sales. Tires purchased separately that still make a set will still be honored under the maintenance agreement. This means you can buy two now and two later and agreement goes into effect when four have been purchased.

What the maintenance package includes is free rotation for life of the tires, free balance for life of the tires, and free flat repair for life of the tires (as long as tire is repairable).


2. The only tires that qualify for our free road hazard protection are new tires that are purchased in a set (4 on a car or 6 on a dually). They must be purchased from Smith's Tire Sales. Tires purchased separately that still make a set will still be honored. Meaning you can buy two now and two later and it goes into effect when four have been purchased.

3.The only tires that qualify for our treadwear protection plan are tires that are purchased in a set (4 on a car or 6 on a dually). They must be purchased from Smith's Tire Sales. Tires must be purchased and installed on the same day, and on the same invoice.

WARRANTY INFORMATION

CONGRATULATIONS

You just purchased a set of new tires from Smith's Tire Sales!

What comes next you ask???

What all do I get with my tires?


This is where it gets a little more tricky. We understand that you are buying your tires from us and we want to help you any way we can, however, some manufacturers have better road hazard coverage than others and some, none at all.

This is why road hazard varies greatly by brand of tires you purchase.

At Smiths Tire, we promote our main label which is the Ironman brand. Should you ever have an issue with this brand, most generally, it can be replaced on the spot, same day with minimal cost.

However, we know that Ironman is not for everyone. The following describes what will happen if one of your tires becomes unserviceable due to a road hazard issue:

1. If Ironman brand:

a.) Tires with less than 2/32nd's worn off are replaced for free. If tire is in stock, it will be replaced same day.

b.) If worn more than 2/32nd's, customer will be responsible to pay an equal percentage to what has been worn off tire to get a new tire. If you have worn 50% off, then you will only pay 50% of the tires current market value. If tire is in stock, it will be replaced same day.

2. If other brand:
Customer will be responsible to pay an equal percentage to what has been worn off tire to get a new tire. If you have worn 50% off, then you will only pay 50% of the tires current market value. Tire will need to be sent in for adjustment. This could take 2-3 weeks, depending on manufacturer. If new tire is desired before adjustment period expires, customer will have to pay full amount for new tire and receive credit back from Smiths Tire Sales when manufacturer releases credit to us.

There are a few road hazard exclusions that are printed below.


And finally, the treadwear warranty...

We hope this helps you understand how to get the most out of your purchase. We will see you on the first rotate and balance!


These are all very fine questions and worth asking. Many tire retail stores simply sell you the tire and they are done. That's not us.

Others will charge you extra for after installation services and warranties. Luckily, that's not us either.

Now, we can talk about the road hazard warranty.

​​​​​SMITHS TIRE SALES INC.
