      Warranty Information

      Find out everything you need to know about the product warranty

      1. ELIGIBILITY

      This Limited Warranty and Adjustment Policy applies to the original owner of new General brand passenger and light truck (LT) tires that are the new vehicle original equipment tires bearing the General brand name and D.O.T. Tire Identification Number, operated in normal service, and used on the same vehicle on which they were originally installed according to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. Tire(s) on any vehicle registered and normally operated outside the United States and Canada are excluded from eligibility under this Limited Warranty and Adjustment Policy.

      2. WHAT IS THE ADJUSTMENT POLICY AND HOW LONG IS IT APPLICABLE?

      BASIC COVERAGE:

      Eligible Tires are covered by this Limited Warranty and Adjustment Policy for a maximum of 72 months from the date of purchase, determined by the new vehicle registration date or new vehicle sales invoice showing date of purchase.

      Where to Go for Warranty replacement:

      Contact the vehicle dealer from where you purchased the vehicle to determine the eligible warranty coverage for your tires and where to proceed from there.

      Free Replacement Period:

      If an eligible General brand passenger or light truck tire becomes unserviceable from a condition other than those listed under Section 3 during the first 12 months or first 2/32nds of an inch (1.6mm) of treadwear (whichever comes first) it will be replaced with a comparable new General brand tire FREE OF CHARGE, including mounting and balancing. Owner pays all applicable taxes.

      Temporary Spare Tires:

      This Policy also extends to the original owner of the General brand Temporary Spare Tire that was originally equipped by the vehicle manufacturer as a temporary spare tire bearing a General D.O.T. serial number. An eligible Temporary Spare Tire under this Policy must have been operated in normal service, used on the same vehicle on which they were originally installed according to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations, This Policy is for a maximum period of 72 months from date of purchase, determined by the new vehicle registration date or new vehicle sales invoice showing date purchased. If a Temporary Spare Tire becomes unserviceable from a condition other than those listed in Section 3, during the first 1/32nd (0.8 mm) of treadwear, then it will be replaced with a comparable new General brand Temporary Spare Tire FREE OF CHARGE, including mounting and balancing. The owner pays all applicable taxes. After this “Free Replacement Policy” for your Temporary Spare Tire expires, no adjustment will be made.

      After the Free Replacement Period:

      The tire (except temporary spare tire) may still be eligible for a pro rata replacement for 72 months from date of original purchase until the tread is worn down to the tread wear indicators (2/32nds of an inch or 1.6 mm of tread remaining.) If an eligible tire becomes unserviceable under the stipulations of this Limited Warranty and Adjustment policy it will be replaced charging the owner a pro-rated amount. Owner pays all applicable taxes (including F.E.T.), mounting and balancing charges. The replacement tire price will be determined by multiplying the percentage of the useable tread worn by the Dealers Selling Price (excluding all applicable taxes) at the time of the adjustment. The useable tread is the original tread down to the tread wear indicators (2/32nds of an inch or 1.6 mm of tread remaining.)

      4. CONTINENTAL TIRE NORTH AMERICA’S (CTNA’S) OBLIGATIONS

      Contact the vehicle dealer from where you purchased the vehicle. Your tires may be covered under the vehicle manufacturer’s limited warranty. If not, this CTNA Policy applies and replacement of Eligible Tires can be made by any vehicle dealer authorized to handle General brand tire adjustments or a General brand authorized dealer (“Authorized Dealer”). CTNA will replace the tire pursuant to the terms of this Limited Warranty and Adjustment Policy. Tires that are replaced under an adjustment basis under this Limited Warranty and Adjustment Policy become the property of CTNA.

      5. OWNER’S OBLIGATIONS

      To make an eligible claim under this Limited Warranty and Adjustment Policy, the owner must present a claim with the tire to an Authorized Dealer. For the nearest Authorized Dealer, consult the Yellow Pages, the General brand internet address, or the 800 telephone numbers shown on the back of this Limited Warranty and Adjustment Policy. Owner must present new vehicle registration form or new vehicle sales invoice indicating the date of purchase. Owner will be required to sign the CTNA Limited Warranty Claim Form or dealer replacement sales receipt.

Owner is also responsible for paying local tire-disposal fees and any parts or service regardless of mileage or months of service. This includes payment for tire rotation, alignment, towing, road service, valve stems and tire repairs. Owner is responsible for maintaining proper tire air pressure and for proper maintenance of the tire.

      6. SAFETY WARNING:

      Ignoring any of the safety and information contained in this limited warranty and Adjustment Policy may result in tire failure , causing serious injury or death.

      • Tire failure due to underinflation /overloading. Follow vehicle owner’s manual or tire placard in vehicle for proper inflation and loading.
      • Explosion of tire/rim assembly due to improper tire mounting. Tire mounting / demounting can be dangerous. It should be performed only by a trained tire specialist using proper tools and procedures. Prior to tire mounting/demounting, the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) wall charts and manuals should be read to obtain the proper procedures. The failure to follow these procedures may result in faulty positioning of the tire and/or rim, which may cause the assembly to burst with force sufficient to cause injury or death.
      • Tire failure due to damage. Inspect your tires frequently for scrapes, bulges, separations, cuts, snags and other damage from road hazards. Damage from impact can occur to the inner portions of your tire without being visible to the outside. If you suspect a tire has been damaged from striking anything unusual in the road, you must have the tire removed from the rim and inspected both inside and out by a trained tire specialist. Air loss or unusual tire wear can also be warning signs that a tire may have internal damage. If you notice these conditions, have your tire inspected by a trained individual.
      • Tire failure due to excessive tire spinning. Avoid tire spinning. The centrifugal force generated by a free-spinning tire/rim assembly may cause a sudden tire explosion resulting in vehicle damage and/or serious injury or death. Never exceed 35 mph (55km/h) as indicated on your speedometer when your vehicle is stuck in snow, mud, or sand and your tire(s) is/ are spinning. Use a gentle backward and forward rocking motion to free your vehicle for continued driving. Never stand or permit anyone else to stand near or behind a tire spinning while attempting to push a vehicle that is stuck.

      TEMPORARY SPARE TIRE OWNERS:

      CTNA does not recommend any repair to or reuse of punctured Temporary Spare Tires.

      THIS LIMITED WARRANTY AND ADJUSTMENT POLICY IS NOT A WARRANTY THAT YOUR TIRE WILL NOT FAIL OR BECOME UNSERVICABLE IF NEGLECTED OR MISTREATED.

      Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act:
      Legally, a vehicle manufacturer cannot void the warranty on a vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless they can prove that the aftermarket part caused or contributed to the failure in the vehicle (per the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act (15 U.S.C. 2302(C)) Learn More
