BF Goodrich extends tire, casing warranties

BFGoodrich Commercial Truck Tires is introducing an extended warranty for its commercial truck tires and casings, effective on claims filed on or after Sept. 1, 2015.

Reflecting the brand’s proven performance, BFGoodrich says the warranty coverage against defects in workmanship and materials for all BFGoodrich commercial truck tires will now extend to the life of the original tread or five years from the date of manufacture, whichever occurs first.  For tires used in long-haul service, the new extended warranty will cover workmanship and materials for up to two retreads or five years from date of manufacture, BFGoodrich says.

“BFGoodrich is known in the trucking industry for durability and longevity,” says Donna Murphy, business segment manager for BFGoodrich Commercial Truck Tires. “This extended warranty reflects the brand’s strong product performance and demonstrates our commitment to the hard-working truckers who use our tires every day.”

Date of manufacture is based on the original DOT number molded on the tire sidewall.  Tires covered by this extended warranty must have been inspected by an authorized BFGoodrich commercial truck tire dealer and retreaded by an authorized Michelin Retread Technologies (MRT) dealer or an authorized Oliver Retread dealer, the company says.
