For SA: All-terrain tyre warranty?

2012-10-10 19:21

A FIRST FOR SA: Hankook's all-terrain tyres can now be purchased with an 80 000km warranty which should give 4x4 enthusiasts much needed peace of mind.

Tiger Wheel & Tyre and Hankook are offering an off-road tyre they claim will last for 80 000km and they’re backing they’re claim with a guarantee – South Africa’s first disance warranty on all-terrain tyres.

The warranty applies to the purchase of two or more all-terrain Hankook Dynapro AT-M RF10 tyres in sizes 15” to 18”.

At 10 000km intervals, the vehicle must be returned to Tiger Wheel & Tyre for tyre rotation, balancing and alignment.
In addition, tyre pressure must be checked monthly and tyres inflated to the manufacturer’s specification.


Ashley Cooper, Hankook brand executive, said: “Drivers of all-terrain vehicles have long been asking for a tyre distance warranty like those afforded to drivers of passenger vehicles and we’re pleased to be the first to offer just that.

“The challenge in getting a warranty like this to market was two-fold. First, all-terrain tyres are subjected to far harsher demands than passenger tyres, so that requires superior construction, performance and durability of the tyre being warrantied.

In the event of tyres not going the distance, customers will receive credit towards a new or equivalent Hankook tyre of the same size. The compensation is based  on a calculation against the distance already used on the tyre and the usable tread left.

The Hankook Dynapro AT-M RF10 80 000km warranty is exclusively available at Tiger Wheel & Tyre stores in SA.
