Other Warranties

THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS THE ONLY EXPRESS WARRANTY GIVEN BY PIRELLI. PIRELLI DOES NOT MAKE ANY OTHER EXPRESS WARRANTY, AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE LIMITED TO THE APPLICABLE DURATION OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY. PIRELLI DOES NOT AUTHORIZE ANY OTHER PERSON, INCLUDING AUTHORIZED PIRELLI DEALERS OR VEHICLE MANUFACTURERS, OR VEHICLE DEALERS, TO CHANGE THIS WARRANTY OR CREATE ANY OTHER OBLIGATION IN CONNECTION WITH PIRELLI TIRES.


Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
 

What Is the Standard Warranty Coverage?

If an eligible Pirelli tire becomes unserviceable due to workmanship or material defects within the first year, or within the first 2/32” of the original usable tread, whichever occurs first, the tire will be replaced with an identical or comparable tire at no charge to the owner.

If a Pirelli tire becomes unserviceable due to workmanship or material defects (other than ride-related complaints) following the initial warranty period above, the owner must pay the pro-rata cost for a comparable Pirelli replacement tire. An authorized Pirelli Dealer will determine the pro-rata cost by multiplying the percentage of the original usable tread that has been worn by the current dealer selling price.

When the treadwear indicators become visible (2/32” tread depth remaining), regardless of age or mileage, the tire is considered to be 100% worn and will not be covered by this Limited Warranty.

Pirelli Confidence Plus Plan for Select Replacement Tire Lines

This Limited Warranty includes a 30 day trial period for select Pirelli Replacement Tires installed as a set of four (4) (front and rear). Within 30 days of your original purchase date, you may return the set of eligible Pirelli Replacement Tires you wish to replace to the original place of purchase along with the original purchase sales receipt and exchange them for a different set of Pirelli Replacement Tires. As an alternative, if there is no other suitable Pirelli tire line available in your size, the purchase price of the tires will be refunded, less taxes and fees.

​Special Warranty Information

Road Hazard Policy for Run Flat Tires Only
Pirelli Run Flat tires are manufactured with technology that allows limited low-inflation operation in the event of sudden loss of pressure. Pirelli does not recommend the repair of Run Flat tires or Pirelli Noise Canceling System (“PNCS”) tires. As a result, in addition to the standard warranty coverage, Pirelli provides road hazard coverage on both Pirelli Original Equipment and Replacement tires manufactured with Pirelli Run Flat or PNCS technology

If a Run Flat or PNCS tire becomes unserviceable due to road hazard damage within the first year, or within the first 2/32” of the original usable tread, whichever period ends first, the tire will be replaced with an identical or comparable tire at no charge for the tire to the owner. After that period, if a Run Flat or PNCS tire becomes unserviceable due to road hazard injury, the owner must pay the pro-rata cost of a comparable new Pirelli replacement tire. An authorized Pirelli dealer will determine the pro-rata cost by multiplying the percentage of the original usable tread that has been worn by the current dealer selling price. 

​What Is Not Covered by this Limited Warranty

What Is Not Covered by this Limited Warranty?
- Ride-related claims after the first 2/32” of useable tread. These include uneven wear due to misalignment, worn suspension components, mechanical interference, improper inflation, flat spots due to improper transport, improper storage or braking, etc.

- Irregular wear.

- Excessive noise emissions.

- Tires with 2/32” or less tread remaining.

- Tire damage and surface cracks due to use in low ambient temperatures, (except in winter and all season tires as defined in the applicable Pirelli Product Catalog).

​Tire Information

Tire care and service

1. Tire Sidewall Markings


 

 

Tire Size: A combination of alphabetic and numeric characters that indicate the nominal dimensions of a tire:

 


Load Index Number, a numeric code which indicates the maximum load carrying capacity of a tire at the maximum cold inflation pressure.

Speed Symbol, an alphabetical code which indicates the maximum speed at which the tire can carry a load corresponding to its Load Index when properly inflated. These two items together are known as the “Service Description”.

 

Speed Symbol Chart

Speed symbols
*For tires having a maximum speed capability above 149 mph, a “ZR” may appear in the size designation; above 186 mph, a “ZR” must appear in the size designation, and a Service Description, including the “Y” speed symbol, must be included in brackets.

 

Other Markings:
P - As part of the tire size designation (e.g., P205/65R15), is used to indicate tires intended for service on passenger cars.

LT - As part of the tire size designation (e.g. LT235/75R15), is used to indicate the tires are intended for service on light truck vehicles.

M&S - Letters used to indicate a tire suitable for Mud and Snow and/or All Season usage.

XL - As part of the size designation (e.g. P235/75R16 XL), is used to indicate the tire can carry more load as the maximum inflation pressure and load are greater than a standard load version. (Also could be called REINFORCED).

 - 3 peak mountain snowflake pictograph used to indicate a tire suitable for use in severe snow conditions.

 

2. Tire Categories:

ALL SEASON TIRES (All Weather Tires):  Tires that are designed to perform in a variety of road conditions in All Seasons of the year. An All Season tire will carry "M+S", "M&S", or "M/S" designation on the sidewall. All Season tires may carry a treadwear warranty depending on the product line.

SUMMER TIRES (Ultra High Performance): Summer tires offer superior handling, grip and cornering ability compared to standard tires under certain conditions. Some lines may carry a treadwear warranty.

WINTER TIRES (Snow Tires): A winter tire is a tire with a tread design and compound made specifically for snowy and icy conditions and is identified by M&S, M+S or M/S markings on the sidewalls. Tires designed for use in severe snow conditions are further identified with a pictograph of a mountain with a snowflake on the sidewalls and must meet specific snow performance test requirements. Pirelli Winter tires do not carry a treadwear warranty

The information provided above is an overview of tire types. Tread patterns and rubber compounds vary among the seasonal tire types and provide varying performance characteristics and limitations. Summer performance tires are different than winter and All Season types. To determine which Pirelli lines carry a treadwear warranty, please refer to the Treadwear Warranty sections in this document.

Pressure Recommendations

Pressure Recommendations
Recommended tire inflation pressures for your vehicle can be found either on your vehicle’s tire placard or in your owner’s manual. Correct pressures are related to load, speed and vehicle handling and are vital for even braking, maximum traction and good tire life. Under no circumstances should your tire’s cold inflation pressure be less than that indicated on your vehicle’s tire placard or in your owner’s manual or higher than the maximum cold inflation pressure molded on to the tire’s sidewall.
Under inflation causes excessive flexing, deterioration of the tire and rapid wear of the tread edges.
Over inflation results in an uncomfortable ride, a reduced area of tire contact with the road surface (i.e., smaller tire footprint), higher susceptibility to impact damage and rapid wear on the tread center.
Whether inflated by air or nitrogen, regular inflation pressure maintenance remains critical and necessary. Use of nitrogen alone is not a replacement for regular inflation pressure maintenance.

WARNING: Driving on tires with improper inflation pressure is dangerous. These situations can cause a tire failure, including tread/belt separation, even at a later date, which could lead to an accident and serious personal injury or death.

Inflation pressure must be checked at least once a month and should be checked only when the tire is cold or before it has been driven. Driving even a short distance causes tires to heat up and the air pressure to increase. Never reduce or “bleed” air from hot tires since your tires will then be underinflated when they cool down. Always use a reliable pressure gauge.

​Special Tire Consideration

UHP Summer Tires
The special tread compounds formulated for ultra high performance summer tires are optimized for maximum dry and wet performance in warm temperatures. The compounds in these tires will have decreased performance, such as lateral and braking traction, at temperatures below 45° F or when driving on snow or ice. In addition, they can lose flexibility and may develop random surface cracks at very cold temperatures; therefore extra care should be used in handling tires. It is recommended not to use summer tires in these lower temperature conditions; rather, All Season or winter tires should be installed.

DOT Street Legal Competition Tires
P Zero Trofeo, P Zero Trofeo R, P Zero Corsa and P Zero Corsa System tire lines use special tire construction and compounds to achieve their distinctive performance in dry conditions. As a result of that, their performance in cold temperatures, heavy rain or standing water will be decreased. Use extreme caution and drive slowly on wet roads.
The minimum tread depth will be reached earlier than normal road tires, resulting in reduced tread life.

Winter Tires
During winter use, Pirelli recommends the fitment of 4 winter tires. Please check your vehicle owner’s manual concerning winter tire size recommendation. If the winter tires have a lower speed rating than the original equipment tires, vehicle handling may be affected, and the vehicle maximum speed must be reduced to the winter tire speed rating.
If using studded winter tires, Pirelli recommends that studded tires be installed on all four positions.

Please note that studded tires are not legal in all states so please check the applicable legal requirements before installing.

Please note, for both winter tire and studded tire usage, if such tires are applied to the front axle, they must also be applied to the rear axle.

Run Flat Tires
Always refer to the vehicle owner’s manual with respect to specific safety and operating information relating to the vehicle. Damaged Run Flat tires or Run Flat tires that have experienced a loss of pressure should immediately be replaced with another Run Flat tire of identical size and Service Description (Load Index and Speed Symbol).

Run Flat tires have been developed based on the specifications of the vehicles on which they are mounted. Accordingly, Run Flat tires should only be mounted on vehicles specifically manufactured to accommodate Run Flat tires.

Run Flat tires must be mounted in conjunction with a functional Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

The mounting of tires and installation of the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) should be carried out by a specialized Pirelli dealer.

Pirelli “Seal Inside” Technology
Select Pirelli tires incorporate “Seal Inside” technology, a construction designed to stop the loss of air from a tire when punctured by an object. The “Seal Inside” technology is not designed or intended to be a permanent repair. Should the “Seal Inside” technology be activated, immediately drive your vehicle to a Pirelli dealer for an inspection to determine if repair or replacement is needed. Go to www.us.pirelli.com for more information.

Pirelli Noise Cancelling System
Select Pirelli tires are constructed with Pirelli Noise Cancelling System (PNCS). This is a technology that reduces the tire cavity noise, which is one of the major factors generating noise inside the vehicle, and is caused by the vibration of the tire structure when rolling on the road surface.

​Tire Replacement

Tire Replacement
The tires fitted to your vehicle as original equipment were tested and approved by the vehicle manufacturer and the tire manufacturer and take into account all aspects of the vehicle’s operation. Changes in the tire size, type or construction should not be made without seeking advice from the vehicle or tire manufacturer or an authorized Pirelli dealer since unapproved tires on your vehicle could adversely affect steering, handling, braking and traction. The tire information (tire size, load index and speed symbol) as found on the vehicle placard or in the owner’s manual should always be followed when replacing tires. It is strongly recommended that Pirelli tires be mounted in sets of four with the same tread type. Pirelli tires should not be mixed with other tire brands. It is necessary to follow this procedure because different tire constructions have different handling characteristics. Tires on the same axle must be the same manufacturer, brand, tire size, load index, speed rating and Pirelli part number. When changing only two tires on a vehicle which is homogeneously fitted (four tires of the same tire size), fit the new tires on the rear axle. This applies to all vehicles regardless of their drive axle. (Front or Rear Drive).

On all wheel drive or four wheel drive vehicles the tires must always be replaced in sets of four.
When replacing tires on light truck vehicles, you should always follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. Passenger and light truck tires are not interchangeable, due to differences in their pressures and load carrying capacity.

P-Metric and Euro-Metric Interchangeability: Euro-Metric (Example: 225/45R17) tires have a load index which is equal to or greater than that of the same size P-Metric (Example: P225/45R17) tire. Therefore, they have the same or higher load carrying capacity at the maximum rated inflation pressure. Always check with your tire dealer or Pirelli Tire Consumer Affairs to be sure of the exact interchangeability to maintain proper vehicle dynamics.

Please be aware that it is important that, before fitting the suggested tires, the fitment is allowed by the technical specifications of the vehicle, the vehicle manufacturer and the relevant homologations. Pirelli does not express any view as to the compatibility of the wheel/tire combination with the technical specifications for the chassis and vehicle.

TO MAINTAIN VEHICLE DYNAMICS AND LOAD CARRYING CAPACITY, REPLACEMENT TIRES MUST ALWAYS HAVE A LOAD INDEX AND SPEED SYMBOL EQUAL TO OR GREATER THAN THOSE FITTED AS ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT.

When installing plus size fitments, you should consult with the dealer regarding any suspension or braking system modifications which may be recommended for the vehicle.

​Tire Inspection

Tire Inspection
As a minimum, tires should be examined and air pressure checked monthly and always prior to long trips. They should also be examined if you strike any unusual object on the road. Tires showing bulges, cracks, cuts, penetrations or uneven wear must be dismounted and examined by an authorized Pirelli tire dealer and replaced if necessary. Pirelli tires have treadwear indicators in the tread grooves, which clearly show when the tread has worn to 2/32” remaining. At this point, your tires must be replaced because they do not meet the federal minimum tread depth and they may be dangerous if left in service.

Tires should be removed from service for numerous reasons, including tread worn down to minimum depth, damage or abuse (punctures, cuts, impacts, cracks, bulges, underinflation, overloading, etc.). For these reasons, tires, including spares, should be regularly inspected, i.e., at least once a month. Inspection should occur regardless of whether the vehicle is equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system. In addition to these visual conditions, consumers should take note of and address any change in performance such as increased air loss, noise or vibration or other factors.

The mere passage of time (age) does not cause tires to deteriorate, but rather exposure to outside forces. The service life of a tire is a function of service and storage conditions. For each individual tire, this service life is determined by many factors such as temperature/weather, storage conditions, and service conditions (e.g., load, speed, inflation pressure, maintenance, and road hazard damage, etc.) to which a tire is subjected throughout its life. Since service and storage conditions vary widely, accurately predicting the service life of any specific tire based on chronological age is not possible. There is no scientific or technical data that establishes or identifies a minimum or maximum service life, but the longer a tire has been in service, the greater the chance that it will need to be replaced due to service-related conditions.

To avoid cosmetic damage, use a mild soap solution to clean sidewalls and rinse off with low pressure tap water. Never apply cleaners or dressings to enhance sidewall appearance to avoid removal of antioxidants, which are intended to prevent ozone degradation. The removal of antioxidants may degrade the rubber and can lead to sidewall cracking. The use of high-pressure sprayers may cause sidewall damage. To remove the protective film from a Pirelli tire with white letters, first flood the area with a stream of water from a hose. After a minute or two the film will soften and it can be removed with soft nylon brush if needed.​

WARNING: Driving on a damaged tire is dangerous, as the tire can suddenly fail, which can lead to an accident and serious personal injury or death.

​Tire Care

Tire Rotation
Pirelli recommends that you follow the tire rotation procedure as defined in your vehicle owner’s manual. If there is no procedure specified, Pirelli recommends tire rotation every 5,000 to 7,000 miles to optimize your tire wear.

Tire Repair
Punctures, nail holes or cuts located in the tread area of Pirelli tires may be repaired if the diameter does not exceed 1/4”. The repair material used must seal the innerliner and fill the injury to be considered a permanent repair. U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association and industry approved repair methods include a combination of a plug and a patch; chemical or hot vulcanizing patches, and head type plugs; all which are applied from inside the tire. A self-vulcanizing plug repair may be used only in conjunction with a patch repair, but not by itself. Plugs may cause further damage to the tire, they are not always airtight and the plug may fail. If a tire puncture exceeds 1/4” or is located in the shoulder or sidewall deflection areas, the tire must be replaced. Never resort to tubes in tubeless tires or sleeves or large thick patches, which can upset the balance and may result in a sudden failure at highway speeds and high operating temperatures.

WARNING: Driving on an improperly repaired tire is dangerous, as the tire can suddenly fail, which can lead to an accident and serious personal injury or death.
 

PIRELLI PROHIBITS THE FOLLOWING FOR SAFETY REASONS:
1) The use of aftermarket tire sealants in Pirelli tires to repair, even temporarily, a puncture;
2) The repairing of V, W, Y or Z Speed Rated tires;
3) The repairing of Run Flat or PNCS tires.

Storage
Should you need to store tires they should be stored indoors in a cool, dry place. Tire storage areas should be cool (45° F ~ 75° F), dry, non-dusty, and moderately well ventilated. To protect your tires from damage related to: heat, water, ozone and direct sunlight, it is suggested you place them in opaque, waterproof containers (e.g., plastic trash bags). It is vital that the tires do not come in contact with sources of heat and/or ozone i.e. radiators, electric generators/motors, hot pipes, etc. and tires should never be allowed to stand or come into contact with water, grease, fuels, brake fluid or any other chemicals.

If you need to transport your tires please follow the above guidelines.

WARNING: Driving on an improperly stored tire is dangerous, as the tire can suddenly fail, which can lead to an accident and serious personal injury or death.

Tubes in Tubeless Tires
Under no circumstances are tubes to be used in Pirelli tires marked “Tubeless”. This includes tires that have been repaired. If the tire’s pressure retention ability has been affected, so as to necessitate a tube being installed, the tire must be replaced.

Tire Valves
Whenever new tires are installed on your wheels, new tire valves of the correct type must be installed. During your routine tire inspection, verify that all your valves have proper valve caps.
Replace as necessary, since the valve cap is also a seal against pressure loss.

Tire Dismounting and Mounting
Tire fitting is best left to professionals who have the equipment and training to perform the task properly and safely using U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association procedures or the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. To maximize the performance of your tires, they must be installed following the tire sidewall markings with respect to direction of rotation (directional arrow) or the proper side facing outside (Outside/Inside). Your wheels should be in good, clean condition. Wheels should be inspected for distortion, dents, cracks, rust and foreign matter, and be replaced as necessary. NEVER EXCEED 40 PSI WHEN SEATING BEADS. Both beads and wheels must be well lubricated prior to seating. ​

Tire/Wheel Alignment and Balancing
Tire / Wheel alignment specifications are issued by your vehicle manufacturer and your vehicle must be kept within these tolerances. You should have your alignment checked annually or whenever you notice any irregular wear or vibrations. Tire / Wheel alignment is important for safety and maximum performance and mileage from your tires.
Tire/Wheel assemblies should be balanced each time a tire is mounted to a wheel. For more information or service regarding Pirelli tires, please contact your nearest Authorized Pirelli Dealer. To locate an authorized Pirelli Dealer in your area, refer to the Dealer Locator section on the Pirelli web site at www.us.pirelli.com.
