This Limited Warranty / Adjustment Policy provides for tire replacement under specified conditions. This policy applies to SUMMIT tires used in normal highway service (commercial applications excluded) displaying warrantable conditions. Tires that become unserviceable or wear out because of neglect or mistreatment are excluded from SUMMIT warranty coverage
This warranty applies to every SUMMIT replacement passenger car or light truck tire bearing the SUMMIT brand name and complete Department of Transportation serial identification number while operated in normal highway use (commercial applications excluded) in the USA. These tires are covered by this warranty for the life of the original usable tread depth (the original tread depth down to the level of tread wear indicators molded at 2/32 inch) within 60 months from the date of purchase (proof of purchases required), or if proof of purchase is not available, the coverage will be 60 months from the date of manufacture. This warranty applies only to the original tire purchaser, and is not transferrable to any other party. This time period does not represent the expected service life for tires covered by this warranty.
Tires that have become unserviceable for the following reasons:
* Note: Consequential damage mentioned above may not apply to you based on individual State limitations.
Tires that have become unserviceable for reasons other than stated above, within 48 months of the date of manufacturer or 60 months from the date of purchase (proof of purchase required) during its useable tread life, the tires will be replaced in accordance with this warranty.

Select SUMMIT tires are assigned a Limited Mileage Warranty that protects the consumer against premature tread wear. If a tire reaches the end of its “usable tread life” before the stated mileage protection, the consumer will be issued a replacement SUMMIT tire on a prorated basis, which means the consumer will be responsible for a percentage of the replacement cost. In order to maintain limited mileage protection, all tires must be properly inflated, balanced, rotated and aligned as recommended by vehicle manufacturer. All claims must be accompanied by the original purchase invoice as well as invoices for all on time services provided. Under all circumstances, the cost of mounting, balancing and any other service charges including applicable taxes, disposal fees are required to be paid by the consumer.
The purpose of regularly rotating tires is to prolong their useful life by achieving more uniform wear for all tires on a vehicle. Before rotating tires, always consult the owner’s manual for rotation recommendations for specific vehicles. If no rotation period is specified, tires should be rotated, at minimum, every 6,000 miles or at any sign of uneven wear. The first rotation is the most important. Rotating the tires as recommended by the vehicle or tire manufacturer will help even out the amount of wear on each tire and extend the life of the entire set. Such tires include: “Temporary Use Spares”, unidirectional tires and tires with asymmetric tread designs. Also, some vehicles may have different sized tires mounted on the front and rear axles, and these different sized tires have rotation restrictions. Check the owner’s manual for the proper rotation recommendations for these special cases. When tires are rotated, the inflation pressures must be adjusted for the tires’ new positions in accordance with the actual loads on that wheel position and the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. Underinflated or overinflated tires may result in poor handling, uneven tread wear, and increased fuel consumption. If the tires show uneven wear, ask the service person to check for and correct any misalignment, imbalance, or other mechanical problem before rotation.
When the original usable tread is worn 25% (2/32”) or less, and a warrantable condition is found, the tire will be replaced with a comparable new SUMMIT tire free of charge. Replacement tires will be mounted and balanced at the vehicle owner’s expense. Other service charges such as tire rotation, alignment or applicable taxes are payable by the customer. When a tire has worn past the above specified period for free replacement and a warrantable condition is found, the customer must pay for the cost of a new comparable SUMMIT passenger or light truck tire on a prorated basis. The dealer shall determine this cost by multiplying the percentage of usable tread worn by the current retail selling price (Suggested Retail Price x 80%) of that tire at the time of warranty replacement. The cost of mounting, balancing and any other service charges or applicable taxes are payable by the customer.
