Warranties offered by Tire Manufacturers Michelin, Toyo & Goodyear

  • Limited tread life warranty
  • Limited warranty on manufacturing defects
  • Protection against road hazards
  • Money-back guarantee


Did you know that your tires are covered by a warranty provided by the manufacturer, even if they were purchased online? It is important to stay informed on the types of warranties offered, whether it be for a road hazard, manufacturing defect, worn out tire treads, or a money-back guarantee. While manufacturing companies such as Michelin, Toyo, Goodyear, and Pirelli all offer similar warranties, certain manufacturers are more advantageous and it is always a good idea to compare the various tire warranties offered. Which warranties should you prioritize? Which manufacturers offer the best warranty for your tires, and how can you go about entering a claim?

When you invest in new tires, it is strongly advised to obtain a warranty in case of a problem. Tire manufacturers often offer the same warranties, with a few variations in details and conditions.

Limited Tread Life Warranty

Most manufacturers offer a tread life warranty, either by number of km or number of years. If the tire tread on your tires is worn down to the wear indicator (depth of 1.66 mm) before the specified number of km, you could get your money back or obtain a credit on the purchase of your next set of tires.

But beware, this warranty changes according to the manufacturer and the type of tires you purchase. Manufacturers estimate the tire life of each different type of tire. For example, Michelin offers warranties from 50 000 to 145 000 km depending on the model of the tire, whereas Yokohama offers warranties from 40 000 to 80 000 km, or up until 3 years after purchase.

Limited Warranty on Manufacturing Defects

Are your tires wearing unevenly? Are they becoming deformed by vibrations? Ask your mechanic to take a look; it may be due to a manufacturing defect or a problem with the material. If it is the case, you could get your money back or obtain a credit on your next tire purchase. Many tire manufacturers offer a limited warranty on manufacturing defects, provided they are not caused by misuse or incorrect tire pressure.

To detect a potential manufacturing defect, be vigilant during the first 3 to 6 months of use.

Protection against Road Hazards

Even if your tires are of good quality and properly installed, you can’t always control the state of the roads. Certain manufacturers and retailers offer warranties in case of a flat tire or other problems encountered on the road that were out of your control. Remember to ask about the precise terms and conditions of these warranties. For example, Michelin offers roadside assistance in case of a flat tire for up to 3 years after purchase, except if they are factory-fitted. On their side, Pirelli offer the Tyrelife warranty. It gives you the possibility to exchange accidentally damaged tires free of charge in case of a puncture or tear caused by road hazards.

Money-Back Guarantee

Are you unhappy with the tires you just purchased? A few manufacturers offer money-back guarantees for up to 30 days after your purchase. During these 30 days you can replace your tires free of charge if you are not satisfied with their performance! Cooper tire manufacturer go even further and offer this warranty up to 45 days after your purchase.

If you aren’t sure which manufacturers offer the best warranties, take a look at the comparative chart below to help you find the best warranties offered by each tire manufacturer.

How to Enter a Claim

Is one of your tires damaged? Would you like to use your manufacturer’s warranty? To do so, we recommend paying a visit to the retailer that sold you the tires. Make sure to bring the registration card filled out at the purchase and installation of your tires. The retailer will be able to answer any questions you may have concerning the warranties offered on your brand of tires. They can also check the maintenance of your tires and confirm that your claim is receivable and not subject to any restrictions.

Be careful; manufacturers do not cover damage caused by an incorrect installation, balance, tire pressure, or maintenance. They also do not cover damage caused by road accidents, fires, chemical corrosion, or vandalism.

If you aren’t sure what your manufacturer’s warranty covers, visit their website to download the owner’s manual or the detailed warranties. You could also call their customer service line.

Purchasing new tires is an investment that is important to maintain. Stay informed on the manufacturers’ warranties. It will help you to choose the right tires for your vehicle and avoid surprise costs in case of damage. Manufacturers such as Pirelli, Michelin, and Goodyear offer warranties on tire tread wear, road hazards, and manufacturing defects. The more you know!
