FORESTRY TIRE WARRANTY
LIMITED WARRANTY FOR FIRESTONE FORESTRY TIRES
Download Forestry Tire Warranty
This Limited Warranty covers original tread Firestone brand logger service, wire tread ply tires if they are used in normal logging service. It does not cover tires marked "NO ADJ" or "NA" (non-adjustable), or tires not containing the Firestone serial number. Tires branded DT (damaged tire) are not adjustable for appearance.
WHAT IS WARRANTED
If, before wearing down to 2/32nds of an inch of tread or bar depth remaining, and before the end of the fifth year of service (proof-of-purchase required) or before the end of the fifth year from date of manufacture (date molded in sidewall of tire); any tire covered by this Limited Warranty becomes unusable for any reason within the manufacturer’s control, such tire will be replaced with an equivalent new Firestone tire on the basis set forth in the section titled “Replacement Price” below. Some examples of causes or conditions normally beyond the manufacturer’s control are:
- Forest or road hazards (e.g., cut, snag, puncture, impact, bruise break, stone drill, projection rub, tear or chunk in tread, bar or shoulder);
- Apparent overload or improper inflation pressure;
- Wheel misalignment, rim slip, tire/wheel assembly imbalance, mismatching of adjacent tires or other vehicle conditions, defects or characteristics;
- Improper repair or improper insertion of sealant, or improper balancing of filler materials;
- Intentional alteration of either the appearance or the physical characteristics of the tire;
- Conditions caused by aging or improper storage or severe service;
- Failure to observe any of the "Owner-User’s Obligations" items listed elsewhere in this publication;
- Mounting damage or other abuse.
For logger tires used in normal logging service, this Limited Warranty ends at the end of the fifth year of service if proof-of-purchase is available, or at the end of the fifth year from date of manufacture if no proof-of-purchase is available.
For logger tires used in earthmoving service, this Limited Warranty ends after the fifth year of service if proof-of-purchase is available, or at the end of the fifth year from date of manufacture if no proof-of-purchase is available.
This Limited Warranty is in addition to, and/or may be limited by, any other applicable written warranty you may have received concerning special tires or situations.
Tires adjusted under this Limited Warranty will be replaced free of charge (except for mounting and service fees) during the first 10% of treadwear; thereafter, to determine the replacement price, the percent of treadwear is multiplied by the owner-user’s regular buying price. Taxes, mounting fees or other service charges will be added to the replacement price.
