Kumho Warranty Passenger Tires

This policy applies to the original consumer/owner or user of any new tire manufactured by KUMHO Tire Co., Ltd. & produced after 1997. Eligible tires must be used on the vehicle on which they were originally installed according the vehicle manufacturer's recommendation.

What is covered by the warranty & how long

The (1) new original usable tread has worn down to 2/32" remaining (i.e., worn down to the top of the built-in indicators in the tread grooves), (2) before 6 years from the date of manufacture for every passenger & light truck tire (whichever comes first), (3) before 5 years from the date of manufacture for truck tire (whichever comes first), any KUMHO tire covered by this warranty becomes unusable due to a material or workmanship condition, KUMHO will do either of the following:
  1. During the first 2/32" of the original usable tread, KUMHO will replace such tire with a comparable new KUMHO tire free of charge. Applicable taxes on the new tire & costs of mounting & balancing service are payable by the owner.
  2. After the first 2/32" of the original usable tread, a credit will be given toward the purchase of a comparable new KUMHO Tire in proportion of the original usable tread remaining on the returned tire to the original usable tread of the new tire. Applicable taxes & cost of mounting & balancing service are payable by the owner.
    The amount of such credit will be calculated by the following formula:

    C = O.T.R. x P
    C: Amount of credit
    O.T.R.: Original Usable Tread Remaining on Returned Tire
    O.T.: Original Usable Tread on New Tire
    P.: Purchase Price of New Tire in accordance with KUMHO Dealer’s
    Price List effective at the time of adjustment.
    • Remarks: Please refer to Adjustment Credit Percentage Table.
