Tyre Manufacturer Warranty
The leading tyre brands sold by Tiger Wheel & Tyre each represent their own Tyre Manufacturer Warranty. This warranty would include elements such as, the number of years a tyre is covered for against manufacturing defects and will indicate if the warranty is valid from date of manufacture or date of sale, as this may differ for each brand. However, Tiger Wheel & Tyre will honour manufacturing warranties from date of sale.
