HOW REPLACEMENT CHARGES ARE CALCULATED

A tyre which becomes unserviceable due to a condition covered by this workmanship and materials limited warranty will be replaced with a comparable new BFGoodrich® brand tyre, free of charge, when 1.6mm or less of the original tread is worn, (or 25% or less, whichever is more beneficial to you) and within 12 months of the date of purchase. You pay the cost of any other service charges and applicable taxes.

When more than 1.6mm of original tread has been worn (or more than 25%, whichever is more beneficial to you) or after 12 months from the date of purchase, (you will be reimbursed for the value of the tyre based on the remaining tread depth or such other form of compensation according to prevailing commercial policy). This list is based on a predetermined price intended to fairly represent the actual selling price of the tyre.
