If you choose to change the size of a tyre this can alter its legality, therefore it is the consumer’s responsibility to contact relevant road and traffic authorities prior to any modifications being done to see if they are permitted. Mickey Thompson Tire is not liable for any legal issues that may arise from the purchase and fitment of tyres.
Every first quality tyre bearing our name and serial number and not branded "NA" which is not used for racing is warranted to be free of defects in workmanship and material during the life of the original tread design.
ALL MICKEY THOMPSON TIRES COME WITH A MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY
Mickey Thompson Tires warrants to the purchaser that if a tyre becomes unserviceable in private vehicle use as a result of a defect in workmanship or materials during the tread life (when the tread depth wears down to 1.6mm or less) or more than 72 months old based on date of purchase whichever comes first.
When the tread becomes worn down to 1.6 mm (shown by tread wear indicators moulded into the tread grooves) the tyre is worn out and this warranty ends.
The replacement charge will be determined by multiplying the consumer's original purchase price by the percentage of original tread depth worn from the tyre. The consumer must pay for mounting, balancing and any other additional charges, or the acceptance by the consumer of a higher priced replacement tyre.
The warranty is made for the exclusive benefit of the original owner actually using these products, is not assignable and no claim hereunder will be recognised unless submitted on our standard claim form duly filled out and signed by such owner or authorised reseller.
This warranty does not in any way extend to any consequential damages or losses.
There is no other warranty, or liability, expressed or implied, applicable to these products. No representative has the authority to make any representation, promise, or agreement except as stated herein.
