For service assistance or information

You are eligible for the benefits of this warranty if you meet all the following criteria:

  • You are the owner or authorized agent of the owner of new Duraturn Truck Bus Radial (TBR) tires.
  • Your tires bear Department of Transportation (DOT) prescribed tire identification numbers and are not branded “NA” (Not Adjustable).
  • Your Duraturn truck tires have been used only on the vehicle on which they were originally installed according to the vehicle manufacturers or Duraturn recommendations.
  • Your tires were purchased on or after January 1, 2014.

What is covered under this warranty and for how long


Duraturn truck tires covered by this warranty that become unserviceable due to a defect in workmanship or material during the life of the original usable tread (down to 2/32" remaining usable tread), will be reimbursed to the owner on a prorated basis. You pay only for the mounting, balancing, taxes and fees.

How to calculate the prorated amount

The replacement price will be calculated by multiplying the current Duraturn “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 Duraturn 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.

Definition of a comparable tire

A “comparable” new Duraturn tire may either be the same line of tire or, in the event that the same tire is not available, a tire of the same basic construction and quality with a different sidewall or tread configuration. If a higher priced tire is accepted as replacement, the difference in price will be at an additional charge to you.

Any replacement tire provided pursuant to this warranty will be covered by the Duraturn warranty in effect at the time of replacement.

  • Road hazards (including punctures, cuts, snags, impact breaks, etc.)

  • Mechanical condition of the vehicle.

Your legal rights

Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusions may not apply to you.

No representative or dealer has authority to make any representation, promise, or agreement on behalf of Duraturn, except as stated herein.

Any tire, no matter how well constructed, may fail in service or otherwise become unserviceable due to conditions beyond the control of the manufacturer. Under no circumstances is this warranty a representation that a tire failure cannot occur.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state.

This limited warranty is applicable only in the United States, Canada & Mexico.
