Your Arisun TBR tires have been used only on the vehicle on which they were originally installed according to the vehicle manufacturers or Arisun's manufacturer recommendations
- TERMS & CONDITIONS
All radial truck tire warranties are limited to the original purchaser and the original vehicle on which they were mounted and are not assignable to subsequent purchasers or vehicles. Original receipts must accompany all claims.
The cost of mounting, balancing and any other charges by the dealer in connection with the replacement of the tire are required to be paid by the purchaser. The purchaser is also required to pay all applic able Federal, State/Provincial and local taxes.
- WHAT IS COVERED UNDER THIS WARRANTY AND FOR HOW LONG
Zhongce Rubber Group Co., Ltd. (ZC RUBBER) warrants to the original purchaser that every new radial truck tire bearing the brand of “Arisun” will be free from defects in materials and workmanship.
This warranty is limited to FIVE (5) year from the original date of manufacture.
50% FREE REPLACEMENT WARRANTY: Any tire adjusted utilizing this limited free replacement warranty will be replaced at no charge if the tire fails during the first 50% of original tread depth(calculated by subtracting one-half (½) the difference between the original new tiretread depth and 2/32" from the original new tire tread depth), due to adefect in materials and/or workmanship.
This warranty is limited to the respective usable original tread depth, which is the original tread depth reduced by the Tread Wearing Index (TWI) depth.
This limited warranty is applicable only in the United States and Canada and any tire used or equipped on a vehicle registered or operated outside the U.S. and Canada are not covered by this warranty.
- HOW TO CALCULATE THE PRORATED AMOUNT
The replacement price will be calculated by multiplying the current Arisun “predetermined price for adjustment” or current advertised selling price at the adjustment location (whichever is lower) by the percentage of usable original tread that has been worn off at the time of adjustment. You pay for mounting, balancing, and amount equal to the full current Federal Excise Tax and any other applicable taxes and fees for the comparable new Arisun replacement tire.
- PRORATED REIMBURSEMENT EXAMPLE
If your disabled tire had an original 16/32" of usable tread depth and is worn to 8/32" of usable tread remaining you have used 50% and therefore must pay 50% of the predetermined price for adjustment or advertised selling price of a comparable tire, plus an amount equal to the full current Federal Excise Tax applicable to the comparable new replacement tire at the time of adjustment. If the price of the comparable tire is $400.00, the cost to you would be $200.00 plus Federal Excise Tax, mounting, balancing and any other applicable taxes.
