Why incur an additional cost for the replacement of a tire damaged as a result of a road hazard or manufacturer defect, when you can get it replaced at no additional cost to you?

Many years back, Discount Tire responded to a very clear customer demand: offer a customer-friendly tire replacement program. At that time, our standard warranty was much the same as everybody's-just like today-based on prorating according to wear. So, we decided to innovate. How about offering a certificate which may be purchased at a reasonable price, that would provide for a replacement tire at no additional charge, regardless of wear, down to the legal tread depth?

This program, called the Certificate for Repair, Refund or Replacement, would cover the tire problems that really frustrate people-road hazards and defects-from the moment they bought the tires to the final mile of legal tread depth (3/32"). Ever hit something in the road that ruins your tire? How about a tire that becomes defective? Who cares about why this happened? You just want a new tire put on with no hassles, and we agree.

After tens of thousands of replacement tires later, our Certificate for Repair, Refund or Replacement program is still doing its job. It serves hundreds of thousands of satisfied Discount Tire customers who have repeatedly thanked us for this part of our service by asking to renew each time they buy tires.

How Does the Certificate Work?

If a tire covered by the Certificate for Repair, Refund or Replacement fails due to a defect or a non repairable road hazard, and still has legal tread (3/32") remaining across the tire, and it has been in use less than 3 years from date of purchase, Discount Tire will give a refund of the full purchase price, together with the applicable sales tax and give you the option to purchase the same new or comparable tire at the refund price, with the payment of any applicable sales tax. There is no prorating, no disqualification for any reason such as run-on damage and no mileage adjustment. It is the very best tire certificate program we know of.

How to Purchase the Certificate?

At the time you are buying your new tires, we will ask if you want to purchase the Certificate for Repair, Refund or Replacement for your tires.

If you are not ready at that time, we still allow 30 days from the date of purchase to buy the certificate. Simply visit your local Discount Tire store or give us a call. Remember, the sooner you buy, the sooner you are covered by the best tire program in the business.
