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 miles as the standard mileage warranty for that particular tire line. ZP (Zero Pressure) tires – The maximum mileage warranty for ZP tires is 30,000 miles.

Legal Notes

[1] Based on a treadwear test using tires in size LT275/65R20 on 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD diesels where the Michelin Defender LTX Platinum showed an estimated life (based on calculating the most-worn groove average of a rotated set) of 78,800 miles versus the MICHELIN® Defender® LTX® M/S at 36,500 miles. 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.

 

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.

 

S-Speed Rated Sizes:
Maximum Speed (mph)    100    106    112
Inflation Increase (psi)    0.0    1.0    2.0
Load Capacity (% of max.)    100    100    100
