Sutong China Tire Resources, Inc. (SCTR) hereby warrants that every new Synergy MTR tire purchased under this limited warranty from an authorized dealer of SCTR is free from defects in workmanship and material for the life of the original tread, down to 2/32”, at which point the tire is considered to be legally worn out.
50% FREE REPLACEMENT WARRANTY
If a defect in workmanship and materials is found in any Synergy MTR tire within the first 50% of tread wear (calculated by subtracting one-half (1/2) the difference between the original new tire depth and 2/32” from the original new tire tread depth), SCTR, Inc. will refund the cost of a replacement of the tire as follows:
- The defective tire must be replaced with a comparable new Synergy MTR tire by an authorized dealer. Proof of replacement will be required.
- Applicable taxes on the new tire shall be borne by the owner.
- 50% free replacement applies to new first quality tires only. Blemished (Blems), retreads and road hazard tires are specifically excluded.
If a defect in workmanship and materials is found in any Synergy MTR tires after the first 50% of tread wear of the original usable tread has worn out, a credit will be given toward the purchase of a comparable new Synergy MTR tire in proportion of the original usable tread remaining on such defective tire to the original usable tread of the new tire. Applicable taxes on the new tire and costs of mounting and balancing service are the responsibility of the owner. Adjustment on out-of-balance or out-of-round tires is allowed only during the first 2/32” of the original tread.
- Casing of truck tires are warranted against defects in workmanship and materials through the life of the second retread. The life of the second retread is considered to end when the remaining tread on the second retread reaches a buffing stage of 2/32” or less.
- Casing warranties are valid only for first five (5) years after date the original tire was manufactured.
- If an examination shows that a casing of a radial truck failed to such a defect, SCTR will issue a credit toward the purchase price of a comparable new Synergy MTR tire in amount indicated below:
