HEMISPHERE PASSENGER TIRE LIMITED WARRANTY

 

Limited Warranty Eligibility

The Hemisphere Limited Warranty extents to only the original purchaser and the original vehicle on which the tires were mounted and it is not assignable to subsequent purchasers or vehicles. Original proof of purchase required. Warranties only apply for two years from the date of purchase. This limited warranty is applicable only in the United States and Canada. Tires used or equipped on a vehicle registered or operated outside the United States and Canada are not covered by this warranty. Tires used on commercial vehicles or for commercial purposes are not covered by this warranty. Eligibility for this limited warranty requires proof of tire maintenance according to the vehicle manufactures instructions from date of tire installation


Limited Tread Life Warranty

Hemisphere tires identified in the “Hemisphere Limited Tread Life Warranty” are warrantied to provide the specified mileage. Certain factors such as road condition, vehicle condition, tire maintenance history and personal driving habits may reduce expected tread life by causing uneven tread wear which voids your warranty. Tires that wear evenly but fail to provide the actual warranted mileage are eligible for a pro-rate adjustment based on the tire’s usable remaining tread and the current tire selling price. Usable tread is determined by measuring the remaining tread depth less 2/32nds at which point a tire is considered legally worn out. Mounting, balancing and taxes are not covered under this warranty and shall be the responsibility of the owner.
