Most tire manufacturers offer tread wear coverage on the tires they offer, since this can vary between products, we recommend taking a look at the specific model tire you have or are considering for clarification. This coverage can be anywhere from 15,000 miles up to as high as 90,000 miles, it will depend on the intended usage of the tire. It's important to note that some mileage warranties are reduced by half for "staggered" fitments (where the front and rear tires are of a different size).
The design of this coverage is to give you piece of mind that the tire was developed with longevity in mind. Although this is not a guarantee, knowing that as long as you do your part in taking good care of the tires through proper inflation, rotation and vehicle maintenance, should the tires not reach their mileage warranty you are able to receive a prorated adjustment for the amount of tire life you did not receive.
