Tyre Warranties


All tyre brands sold by AutoXpress Limited represent their own Tyre Manufacturer Warranty. These warranties 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.

- Improper repairs or repairs that have failed
- Improper inflation or other maintenance abuse such as balancing and wheel alignment not being done every 10,000 kms
- Improper application of the tyre size and/or specification
- Improper mounting/dismounting procedures or tyre assembly balance
- Mechanical irregularities in the vehicle or wheel, such as bent wheel assemblies, misalignment, defective brakes, defective shock absorbers, worn or faulty components
- Accident, corrosion, vandalism, fire or damage caused by nature
