Sumitomo Tire Limited Warranty
1. Tires Covered by This Warranty.
This limited warranty applies to SUMITOMO brand steel belted radial passenger car and light truck/SUV tires bearing the complete description and serial number as required by the DOT. This warranty applies only to tires purchased after January 1, 2010. Tires purchased before that date are subject to previous published warranties.
2. What is Warranted and For How Long.
This warranty is effective only for tires for which claims are made within six years of the date of production, based on the production date indicated by the tire DOT serial number, or within five years of retail purchase, as indicated by an original copy of the consumer invoice, whichever is longer.
A. Material and Workmanship Warranty. Every SUMITOMO brand radial tire is warranted against defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the original useable tread. The original useable tread is defined as the total original tread depth less 2/32”. Tires with 2/32” or less remaining tread depth in any groove are considered worn out by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Tires adjusted under the terms of this warranty will be replaced at the current retail price less the percentage of the original useable tread remaining on the tire.
A SUMITOMO tire that becomes unserviceable due to a defect in workmanship or materials within the first 2/32” of tread wear will be replaced free of charge with a comparable SUMITOMO tire. Tire uniformity claims will be accepted for adjustment only during the first 1/32” of the original tread depth. Such tires will be replaced free of charge with a comparable SUMITOMO tire. A set of four (4) tires from the same vehicle will not be accepted for out-of-round or out-of-balance claims unless the non-uniformity of all tires is verified by the tire dealer.
Any HTR ZIII, HTR A/S P01, or HTR T4 that becomes unserviceable due to a defect in workmanship and materials during the life of the original useable tread will be replaced free of charge.
Any HTRZ II, HTRZ, HTR Sport HP or HTR200 tire that becomes unserviceable due to a defect in workmanship or materials during the first 50% of the original useable tread will be replaced free of charge. During the second 50% of the original useable tread such tires will be replaced on a pro rate basis, if removed from service only due to workmanship related defects.
Any labor, balancing or disposal charges related to the replacement of a tire under the terms of this warranty are the tire owner’s responsibility.
B. Mileage Warranty.
The following SUMITOMO tires are warranted to achieve mileage as noted before becoming worn out at 2/32” remaining tread depth in any groove:
HTR A/S P01 (60/65 Series) 65,000 miles
HTR A/S P01 (55/50/45/40 Series) 40,000 miles
HTR T4 75,000 miles
3. What is Not Covered (Exclusions).
A. Unserviceability due to road hazards (cuts, snags, punctures, bruises, impact breaks, etc.) improper inflation, overload, irregular wear, wheel imbalance, defective vehicle mechanical components (i.e., brakes, shocks, rims) improper suspension alignment, accident, fire, theft, chemical damage, chain damage, racing, off-road use, run fat, improper installation, vandalism, or abuse.
B. Tires on any vehicles registered and normally used outside the United States and Canada.
C. Tires branded “Blemish”, “NA” or having the DOT number removed OR disfigured.
D. Any tire that has been altered to improve traction or uniformity.
E. Tires presented for warranty claim by other than the original purchaser. This warranty is not transferable.

G. A tire whose failure is related to any previous damages and/or repairs.
H. Any cost of tire repair or retreading is not covered by this warranty and will be borne solely by the tire owner.
I. The Mileage Warranty is not applicable if tires are used in commercial service, have premature or irregular wear due to abusive service or defective vehicle mechanical conditions. Abusive service includes off road use, mountain road driving, racing, or passenger car tires on pick-up, recreational or utility vehicles.
4. Owner’s Obligations.
A. At the time of purchase, the tire(s) must be properly installed, balanced, and air pressure set to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation. At least monthly the owner must check air pressure (when tires are cool) with an accurate air gauge and reinflate to recommended level. Tires must be rotated every 6,000 miles, and the proof of compliance must be recorded on the Warranty Card.
B. All warranty claims must be presented to an authorized SUMITOMO Tire dealer.
C. You must present your Warranty Card verifying mileage, rotation, proof of date and place of purchase, to make a Mileage Warranty claim. The name of the SUMITOMO dealer from whom the tires were purchased must be included on the form.
