Warranties

Standard Limited Warranty

All MICHELIN® tires have a Standard Manufacturer's Limited Warranty, which covers defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the original usable tread, or for 6 years from date of purchase, whichever occurs first.

*Mileage Warranty Exceptions

Split fitments – If your vehicle has tires of different sizes on the front versus the rear axles, your tires cannot be rotated as recommended. Therefore, the mileage warranty on each rear tire will cover half the number of kilometres as the standard mileage warranty for that particular tire line. ZP (Zero Pressure) tires – The maximum mileage warranty for ZP tires is 50,000 kilometres.

1 Based on U.S. Department of Transportation Average Annual Miles per driver (13,500 miles) and Desrosiers Automotive Consultants estimate of annual average kilometers driven in Canada (23,000 km), and on a treadwear test using tires in size 275/55R20 on 2020 Ford F150s where the MICHELIN® Defender® LTX® M/S 2 tire showed an estimated life (based on calculating the most-worn groove of a rotated set) of 152,500 km versus the Bridgestone® Alenza AS Ultra at 72,500 km and the Continental® TerrainContact™ H/T at 105,500 km and the Pirelli® Scorpion™ All Season Plus 3 at 97,900 km. Actual on-road results may vary.

 

Government UTQG Ratings do not apply to light truck sized tires.

 

XL =  Extra Load

 

>> The sizes shown are average design values for tires measured on specified measuring rim widths.  Some tires may vary from this value by +/-3% of the section height (affecting overall diameter), and +/-4% of the section width.
>> Section width varies approximately 0.2" (5mm) for every 0.5" change in rim width.
>> Tread patterns are often tuned to accomodate different tire widths.  Tires for a particular dimension of a given tireline may vary in appearance from the tire shown in the photograph.

 

WARNING: Serious or fatal injury may result from tire failure due to underinflation or overloading. To ensure correct air pressure and vehicle load, refer to vehicle owner's manual or tire information placard on the vehicle. Serious injury or death may result from explosion of tire/rim assembly due to improper mounting. Only tire professionals should mount tires and they should never inflate beyond 40 psi to seat the beads.  Before mixing types of tires in any configuration on any vehicle, be sure to check the vehicle owner's manual for its recommendations.

 

IMPORTANT: While all-season tires are designed to provide reliable performance in moderate winter conditions, the use of four (4) tires is recommended for optimal preformance and may be mandatory in certain jurisdictions.

 

DANGER:  Never mount a 15" diameter tire on a 15.5" rim.
DANGER:  Never mount a 16" diameter tire on a 16.5" rim.
DANGER:  Never mount a 17" diameter tire on a 17.5" rim.
DANGER:  Never mount a 19" diameter tire on a 19.5" rim.
DANGER:  Never mount a 22" diameter tire on a 22.5" rim.

 

Inflation pressure increase must not exceed the maximum pressure branded on the tire sidewall.  When a customer requests a replacement tire with a lower speed rating than the original equipment tire, you must clearly communicate to him or her that the handling of the vehicle may be different, and that its maximum speed capability is limited to that of the lowest speed-rated tire on the vehicle.  Exceeding the lawful speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.

 

For high-speed driving, additional inflation pressure and possibly reduced tire loading and/or upsizing is required.  In the absence of specific recommendations by the vehicle manufacturer, use the following guidelines based on those in the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization Standards Manual. 

 

For speeds over 160km/h (100 mph), load and inflation must be adjusted according to the table below.

 

T-Speed Rated Sizes:
Maximum Speed (km/h)    160    170    180    190
Inflation Increase (psi)    0.0    1.0    2.0    3.0
Load Capacity (% of max.)    100    100    100    100

 

H-Speed Rated Sizes:
Maximum Speed (km/h)    160    170    180    190    200    209
Inflation Increase (psi)    0.0    1.0    2.0    3.0    4.0    5.0
Load Capacity (% of max.)    100    100    100    100    100    100
