Casing Warranty

Eligibility

This policy applies to tires displaying warrantable conditions when used in appropriate service as defined in the Yokohama Commercial Sales and Reference Guide and which meet the following criteria.

  • Tires must be or have been retreaded by a Yokohama-approved retreading process. Please reference the approved retread list at yokohamatruck.com.
  • Tires must be or have been inspected by a Yokohama approved non-destructive tire casing analyzer prior to any retreading, and be so identified.

Truck tires designated by Yokohama as approved for and used in on/off highway applications are eligible for warranty consideration if they display warrantable conditions.

What is Warranted and for How Long

Prior to the retreading process, Yokohama radial truck/bus tires are covered by all provisions of the Yokohama Standard Limited Warranty for Truck and Bus Tires. After the retread has been applied on the qualified tire, an additional special casing warranty applies. If a qualified tire becomes unserviceable due to a warrantable condition, the customer will be given a casing credit, as indicated in the chart below. The retread life is de ned as beginning with the installation of the new retread stock and ending after buffing for subsequent retread.

Limitations And Exclusions

All implied warranties, including any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, are expressly limited to the duration of this written warranty. Yokohama Tire Corporation reserves the right to change warranty provisions at any time without obligation. All obligations or liabilities for loss of time, inconvenience, vehicle use, or any other incidental or consequential damages are hereby excluded. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply. This warranty gives the customer legal rights that may vary from state to state. The customer is advised to determine those rights for their local area and exercise them as required or deemed appropriate.

Customer Obligations

The customer must present the claim tire to an authorized Yokohama dealer, with certification that the tire was retreaded by an approved Yokohama retreading process and inspected by a Yokohama approved non-destructive tire casing analyzer. The customer is required to pay the adjusted price of the new tire (dealer's current retail selling price at the time of adjustment, less credit allowance) and taxes. The cost of mounting, balancing, and any other service charges or applicable taxes are also payable by the customer. Remember to register your new Yokohama tires either online at yokohamatruck.com or by mail. Mail-in registration cards are available at authorized Yokohama dealers.
