If it can't be fixed, we help you replace it.

Our Road Hazard Warranty covers road hazard failures in passenger, performance and light truck tires purchased from GroundMax.

This warranty is a promise under certain conditions to cover repairs or give credit on a pro-rated basis towards the purchase of a new tire.

To Qualify for this Warranty

1. You must be the original purchaser of the tires.

2. You must have purchased the tires from GroundMax.

3. The purchaser must rotate and balance their tires as outlined by the vehicle manufacturer.

4. The purchaser must operate their tires at inflation pressures outlined by the vehicle manufacturer.

5. The purchaser must keep all mechanical parts that affect tires in proper working condition.

 
"Road Hazard Failure" is defined as a tire that becomes unserviceable due to cuts, non-repairable punctures or impact damage. GroundMax will pay for the repair of tires with tread-face injuries in accordance with established RMA (Rubber Manufacturers Association) standards.
This warranty covers road hazard failures in passenger, performance and light truck tires purchased from GroundMax.
This warranty is valid for sixty (60) months from the date of purchase or when the tire reaches 1.6 mm (2/32 of an inch) or less in remaining tread depth regardless of age. When a tire has 1.6 mm (2/32 of an inch) or less in tread depth, it is considered worn out.
This warranty provides credit based upon remaining usable tread at the time of failure due to road hazard.
“Usable Tread” is defined as the original tread depth of a tire less 1.6 mm (2/32 of an inch)
Credit is determined by multiplying the useable remaining tread by the current price of the tire.
This warranty does not replace or modify any original tire manufacturers warranty on material and workmanship.
