HIGHWAY AUTO AND LIGHT TRUCK REPLACEMENT AND ADJUSTMENT POLICY
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
You are eligible for the benefits of this Limited Warranty if you meet all the following criteria:
- You are the owner or authorized agent of the owner of new Dunlop highway auto or light truck tires.
- Your tires bear Department of Transportation prescribed tire identification numbers.
- Your tires have been used only on the vehicle on which they were originally installed according to the vehicle manufacturer's or Dunlop's recommendations.
- Your tires were purchased on or after November 1, 2012
Light truck tires are defined as all tires identified with the "LT" designation in the sidewall stamping plus the 8-19.5 and 8R19.5 sizes, which do not carry the "LT" designation.
WHAT IS COVERED AND FOR HOW LONG?
FREE TIRE REPLACEMENT
Any Dunlop Auto or Light Truck tire that is removed from service due to a covered warranty condition during the first 2/32" of tread wear or 12 months from date of purchase, whichever occurs first, will be replaced with a comparable new Dunlop tire at no charge. Mounting and balancing are included. (Without proof of purchase, the date of manufacture will be used to determine eligibility.)
Temporary Spare Tires: Any Dunlop temporary spare tire removed from service due to a covered warranty condition during the first 50% of usable tread wear will be replaced with a comparable new Dunlop temporary spare tire at no charge, including mounting.
Tires not eligible for free replacement that are removed from service due to a covered warranty
condition will be replaced with a comparable new Dunlop tire on a prorated basis for up to six (6) years
from the date of original new tire purchase or when the treadwear indicators become visible (worn to
2/32"), whichever occurs first. (Without proof of purchase the date of manufacture will be used to
HOW WILL PRORATED CHARGES BE CALCULATED?
Replacement price will be calculated by multiplying the tire's advertised retail selling price at the time of adjustment by the percentage of usable original tread that has been worn off. You pay for mounting and balancing, an amount equal to the current Federal Excise Tax (F.E.T. - U.S. only) and any other applicable taxes and government-mandated charges.
Example: If your disabled tire had an original 8/32" of usable tread wear and is worn to 4/32" usable
tread remaining, you have used 50% and therefore, must pay 50% of the advertised price of the
comparable tire. In addition, you must pay an amount equal to the full current Federal Excise Tax (U.S.
only) and any other applicable taxes and government-mandated charges for the comparable new
replacement tire at the time of adjustment. If the price of the new comparable tire is $80, the cost to
you would be $40, plus F.E.T. (U.S. only), plus any other applicable taxes and government-mandated
WHAT IS A COMPARABLE TIRE?
A “comparable” new Dunlop tire will be the same brand tire and may be either the same line of tire or, in the event that the tire is not available, the same brand tire with the same basic construction and similar performance attributes with a different sidewall or tread configuration. If a higher priced tire is accepted as replacement, the difference in price will be at an additional charge to you. Any replacement tire
provided pursuant to this warranty will be covered by the warranty in effect at the time of replacement. Any replacement tire offered pursuant to this warranty will be covered by the Dunlop warranty in effect at the time of replacement.
A tire has delivered its full original treadlife and the coverage of this warranty ends when the tread wear indicators become visible (worn to 2/32") or six (6) years from the date of original tire manufacture or new tire purchase date (whichever comes first). (Without proof of purchase, the date of manufacture will be used to determine eligibility.)
This limited warranty is applicable only in the United States and Canada.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED BY THIS WARRANTY?

disturbance due to damaged wheels or any vehicle condition. Proof of purchase is required (see
E. under Owner's Obligations).
