Page 30 of 97
A tire has delivered its full original tread life and the
coverage of this limited warranty ends when the tread-
wear indicators become visible (worn to 2/32) or six (6)
years from the date of new tire purchase, whichever
occurs first. (Without proof of purchase the date of
manufacture will be used to determine eligibility.)
This limited warranty is applicable only in the United
States and Canada.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED BY THIS
This limited warranty does not cover the following:Tires submitted for ride disturbance complaints that
are worn beyond the first two thirty-seconds of an
inch (2/32) tread depth or tires submitted for ride
disturbance due to damaged wheels or any vehicle
Goodyear does not warrant or give credit in any
adjustment transaction for any kind of material
added to a tire (e.g., tire fillers, sealants, balancing
substances) after the tire leaves a factory producing
Goodyear or Dunlop tires, nor will it adjust any tire
that has failed as a result of adding such material.
Irregular wear or damage due to mechanical condi-
tion of the vehicle, improper inflation, overloading,
high speed spin-up misapplication, misuse, negli-
gence, racing, use of tire chains, improper mounting
or demounting, improper repair, wreck, collision or
Road hazards (includes, but is not limited to, punc-
tures, cuts, snags, impact breaks, etc.) .
Any tire that, after leaving a factory producing Good-
year or Dunlop tires, has been intentionally altered to
change its appearance (e.g., white inlay on a black
tire or regrooved) .
Tires with weather-cracking that were purchased
more than four (4) years prior to presentation for
adjustment or, if purchase date cannot be verified,
manufactured more than four years prior to presen-
tation for adjustment.
Tires removed from service due to improper repairs.Temporary spare tires used on vehicles used in
racing and on passenger cars in special applications
such as police pursuit service.
Goodyear Unisteel Commercial Radial Light Truck
Tires removed from service due to improper repairs.Tires supplied as Original Equipment are not eligible
for any tread life warranty consideration.
Cosmetic weather checking.Low tire pressure-monitoring system – refer to ve-
hicle manufacturer’s warranty.
Ultra High-Performance summer tires are not rec-
ommended for winter use, and tread or shoulder
cracking on those tires resulting from winter use will
not be covered under our warranty.

inflated at 60 psi. To be sure it is always ready for use,
the air pressure should be checked on a regular basis.
The Convenience (Temporary) Spare can be used in
combination with the original tires on your vehicle. You
can expect a tire tread life of up to 3,000 miles
(4,800 kilometers), depending on road conditions and
your driving habits. To conserve tire tread life, return the
spare to the storage area as soon as it is convenient to
have the standard tire repaired or replaced.
The Convenience (Temporary) Spare weighs less than a
standard tire so it’s easier to handle. It also helps reduce
the total car weight, which contributes to fuel economy.
The wheels used with the Convenience (Temporary)
Spare are specifically designed for use with high pres-
sure spares and should never be used with any other
DON’T ATTEMPT TO MOUNT YOUR
Serious injury or death may result from explosion of
tire/rim assembly due to improper mounting proce-
dures. Follow tire manufacturer’s instructions and
match tire diameter to rim diameter. Mount light truck
radials on rims approved for radial service. Do not apply
bead sealer. This can inhibit bead seating. Lubricate
beads and tire rim (including tube or flap) contact
surfaces. Lock assembly on mounting machine or place
in safety cage. STAND BACK and never exceed 40 psi
to seat beads. Never use a volatile substance or a
rubber “donut” (also known as a bead expander or
“O-Ring”) to aid bead seating. Only specially trained
persons should mount tires.
DON’T MIX TIRES OF DIFFERENT
SIZES AND TYPES ON THE SAME
For optimum handling and control, Goodyear recom-
mends fitment of four (4) tires of the same type and size
unless otherwise specified by the vehicle manufacturer.
WARNING: Before you replace your tires, always con-
sult the vehicle owner’s manual and follow the vehicle
manufacturer’s replacement tire recommendations. Ve-
hicle handling may be significantly affected by a change
in tire size or type. When selecting tires that are different
from the Original Equipment size, see a professional
installer in order to make certain that proper clearance,
load-carrying capacity and inflation pressure are se-
lected. Never exceed the maximum load capacity and
inflation pressure listed on the sidewall of the tire. Al-
ways drive safely and obey all traffic laws. Avoid sudden,
sharp turns or aggressive lane changes. Failure to fol-
low this warning may result in loss of control of the
vehicle, leading to an accident and serious injury or
When replacing tires, you must maintain the outside
diameter and load-carrying capacity of the Original
Equipment tire. Inflation pressure may need to be ad-
justed to avoid overloading the tire. Consult the Tire &
Rim Association Load and Inflation Tables, ETRTO or
JATMA standards for correct load and inflation informa-
NEVER FIT TIRES TO A VEHICLE THAT
HAVE LESS LOAD CARRYING
CAPACITY THAN AS REQUIRED BY
THE ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT
Examples: Many vehicles, such as large passenger
vans, require Load Range E tires as designated by the
vehicle manufacturer. Fitment of a tire, such as a Load
Range D, with less carrying capacity is not allowed.
NOTE: Goodyear-manufactured and/or marketed
European-Metric and P-Metric passenger tires are in-
terchangeable as long as they have the same section
width, same aspect ratio and same rim diameter.Cau-
tion: Never substitute a “Standard Load” (SL) tire
for an Extra Load (XL) orReinforced tire. If the
vehicle was originally equipped with “Extra
Load” (XL) or Reinforcedtires, replace those
tires with similar sized Extra Load(XL) orRe-
FOLLOW THESE ADDITIONAL
When installing only two tires, fit the tires with the
deepest tread depth on the rear axle. If radials and
non-radials must be fitted to the same vehicle, fit radials
on rear axle. Never mix radials and non-radials on the
same axle. When fitting winter tires or all-season tires to
performance vehicles, always fit in sets of four. It is not
recommended to fit tires with different speed ratings. If
tires with different speed ratings are installed on a
vehicle, they should be installed with like pairs on the
same axle. The speed capability of the vehicle will
become limited to that of the lowest speed rated tires.

TIRE SPEED RATINGS
Falken recommends replacing your tire(s) with the same
speed rating as the original tires equipped on your vehicle.
It is okay to use a lower speed rated tire when using
winter tires. However, speeds should be reduced to
match the tires new “maximum” speed capability.
Any tire that is repaired, damaged, abused, altered from
its original state or retreaded voids the speed rating on
that particular tire and should be considered a non-
speed rated tire.
Falken does not recommend the use of
mixing different speed ratings on a ve-
hicle. This can cause poor handling and
HIGH PERFORMANCE, LOW ASPECT RATIO TIRES
Various new vehicles come equipped with high perfor-
mance and/or low aspect ratio tires from the factory.
These tires generally provide increased vehicle handling
characteristics, but may also have engineering perfor-
mance trade-offs related with their designs. Low aspect
ratio tires have reduced sidewall heights and may be
more vulnerable to damage from road hazards, pot-
holes, and other objects, like curbs. Your vehicle’s
wheels are susceptible to these same dangers as well.
Some vehicles may be originally equipped with high
performance tires that are designed for warmer weather
use reducing traction in colder, winter weather condi-
tions. High performance tires also pose the possibility of wearing more quickly, giving a stiffer ride, and produc-
ing louder noise than standard all-season tires during
operation. Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual, tire
information placard, or qualified tire service professional
for more information about these kinds of tires.
Falken recommends all four tires be replaced when
replacing your original equipment tires and installing
winter tires for the winter months.
Never use just two winter tires. It could
lead to adverse handling, loss of control,
which could cause serious injury or death.
STORING YOUR TIRES
When storing your tires for any extended period of time,
be sure to thoroughly clean your tires with a tire brush,
soap, and water to remove any dirt, salt, and brake dust
from the tires. If you are storing your tires still mounted
on the wheels, use a wheel brush and approved wheel
cleaner to clean your wheels. Then dry the wheels and
tires with a towel and allow them to fully dry. DO NOT
apply any tire dressings while storing your tires. Tire
compounds are made to resist weather cracking and
ozone damage. Place each clean and dry tire in an
airtight plastic bag and seal the bag with tape to help
reduce oil evaporation. Store your tires out of direct
sunlight and somewhere that is well shielded from the
elements, like a climate-controlled room or dry base-
ment. Storing the tires in a garage or shed usually
exposes the tires to a wide range of temperatures as well as precipitation and humidity. Keep the tires away
from sources that emit ozone like electric motors that
use contact brushes, furnaces, sump pumps, etc. Al-
though tires will still age regardless of how they are
stored, these precautions will help slow the aging pro-
cess and reduce the damage to your tires.
Operating your vehicle in excess of the
posted speed limit or the maximum speed
allotted by driving conditions has the po-
tential to be dangerous. Higher driving
speeds create excessive heat buildup in a
tire, leading to a possible tire failure.
WARNING SAFETY WARNING
Spinning a tire to get a stuck vehicle out of
mud, ice, snow, sand, or wet grass can be
potentially dangerous. A spinning tire at a
speedometer reading above 55 km/h
(35 mph) can be capable of disintegrating
a tire with explosive force. In some circum-
stances, a tire may be spinning at twice
the speed displayed on the speedometer.
This can cause serious injury or death to
you, a passenger, or bystander. Never spin
a tire above 55 km/h (35 mph) .
