Tire Concerns: Warranty Period of Michelin Tires

Tire Concerns: Warranty Period of Michelin Tires

by Dennis Tsai
(San Francisco, CA)

On March 6, 2010 I purchased from Costco a set of new Michelin Energy MXV4 tires that had a manufactured date of "3708" on the DOT code. The tires are warranted for six years by the manufacturer. So when does the 6-year warranty expire ? From the date of manufacture or the date of sale ?

Unfortunately, I did not look at the tire manufacture date until I took the car home and I am now currently in "discussion" with Costco. The tires are now more than 1 year 5 months old, which means I have lost nearly 24% of its useful life of 6-years. Should I pursue the issue strongly or just let it go?

Warranty Period of Michelin Tires
by: Harvey Brodsky

The warranty will generally run from the date of sale if you can produce your purchase receipt, if you have no proof of when you bought the tire then the date of manufacture would be used to determine the warranty period.
