WARRANTIES

DICK CEPEK STANDARD LIMITED WARRANTY

ELIGIBILITY:

This warranty applies to the original purchaser of a Dick Cepek passenger or light truck tire and is not transferable. Eligible tires must be purchased new and must be used on the vehicle which they were originally installed. Additionally, they must be an equivalent or greater load index to that specified by the vehicle manufacturer. For warranty exclusions, please refer to the complete “Dick Cepek Passenger and Light Truck Limited Warranty” or contact Dick Cepek’s technical support department at 1-800-222-9092.

STANDARD COVERAGE

If your Dick Cepek branded tire becomes unserviceable as a result of an eligible adjustable condition during the first 2/32” of tread wear, it will be replaced with an equivalent new Dick Cepek tire, FREE OF CHARGE. When the tread is worn more than 2/32”, if the product exhibits an eligible adjustable condition, it will be replaced on a pro rated basis. For the tire pro ration schedule, please refer to the complete “Dick Cepek Passenger and Light Truck Limited Warranty” or contact Dick Cepek’s technical support department at 1-800-222-9092. You must present proof of purchase and be the original owner when requesting a replacement for your tire.

A replacement charge may be required in order to obtain a replacement tire. The replacement charge will be determined by multiplying the dealer’s current selling price by the percentage of original tread depth worn from the tire. You must pay for mounting, balancing, and any other additional charges, such as taxes or the acceptance of a higher priced replacement tire.

Any Dick Cepek tire that does not deliver satisfactory service due to a balance, out of round or a ride complaint issue will be replaced without charge within the first 2/32nds of the tire’s tread life. After the first 2/32nds the tire is not warrantable for the aforementioned conditions.

TREAD LIFE

When the tread becomes worn to 2/32” (1.6mm) anywhere on the tire (shown by tread wear indicators moulded into the tread grooves), the tire is worn out. WARNING — for important safety information, please refer to the complete “Dick Cepek Passenger and Light Truck Limited Warranty” or contact Dick Cepek’s technical support department at 1-800-222-9092.Additional Tire Safety Information is also available from your local dealer.

HOW TO OBTAIN AN ADJUSTMENT

Tire adjustments must be presented to the dealer which originally sold the tire. You must be able to provide proof of purchase and be the original owner when requesting a replacement for your tire. See “Where to Go for Warranty Replacement”.

NO ROAD HAZARD COVERAGE

Many dealers sell or provide their own warranty coverage for road hazards and/or repairs. Dick Cepek does not provide this coverage. Check with your dealer to determine if Road Hazard/Repair coverage is available from them.

REPLACEMENT WARRANTY

If you receive a replacement tire under the terms of this Warranty, the replacement tire will be covered by the Warranty then currently given by Dick Cepek for the replacement tire.

DICK CEPEK LIMITED TREAD WEAR PROTECTION

For The Complete Dick Cepek Limited Tread Wear Protection Warranty Form

ELIGIBILITY:

This warranty applies to the original purchaser of a replacement Dick Cepek light truck tire and is nontransferable. Eligible tires must be purchased new and used on the vehicle which they were originally installed. Proof of purchase is required for all warranty claims. Additionally, they must be the size, load index, and speed rating equivalent or greater than that specified by the vehicle manufacturer. This warranty applies to the 48 contiguous continental United States, District of Columbia and Canada. For warranty exclusions see “WHAT ISN’T COVERED” in the complete “Dick Cepek Passenger and Light Truck Limited Warranty”.

The following Tread Wear Warranty is a prorated warranty (there is no free replacement period) based on mileage received, and is separate from the Standard Coverage & Extra Coverage Warranties just covered. No manufacturer or dealer can guarantee you a certain number of miles from a given tire. Driving habits, driving conditions, tire and vehicle maintenance all play a part in the tread life of a tire and all differ with each purchaser. The following replacement Dick Cepek (Trail Country) Radial Light Truck tires only are warranted against tread wear out prior to the applicable indicated mileage:

  • Dick Cepek Trail Country – 50,000 miles* (80,000 km*)

*Mileage Warranty applies to Passenger and Light Truck lines.

The Tread Wear warranty is available provided the eligibility above is met and you:

  1. are the original purchaser.
  2. rotate your tires in accordance with prescribed rotation patterns at least every 8,000 miles (13,000 km)and it must be recorded.
  3. present the tire for adjustment.
  4. present the completed rotation record form (attached) when requesting an adjustment and your original purchase receipt, date of purchase, vehicle type, model, odometer reading and rotation record are properly recorded.

If the tire wears to the tread wear indicators in less than the miles warranted, a pro-rated adjustment will be made according to actual mileage delivered. Your adjustment credit will be determined by dividing the actual mileage delivered by the miles warranted and multiplying the result times the current selling price of an equivalent Dick Cepek tire. Adjustment credits can only be used toward the purchase of a new Dick Cepek tire. You must pay for mounting and balancing and any other additional charges, such as taxes or the acceptance of a higher priced replacement tire.
