Tire Replacement Coverage
- After the first 12 months/12,000 miles and prior to the end of the 48 month term, the cost of the replacement tire will be prorated based upon the remaining usable life of the original tire.
- TPP will pay for the replacement tire, minus the cost attributed to the consumed usable treadwear of the orignial tire. This amount is calcualted on a pro-rated basis against the price of the original tire.
- "Usable" tread is tread above 2/32". When tread is worn to 2/32" or below, the tire is considered worn and no longer covered by TPP.
- TPP Coverage Formula:
Amount Covered By TPP =
[Original Tire Price] * ([Current Tread Depth] / [Original Tread Depth])
Original Tread Depth should be obtianed from the tire manufacturer's specifcations. This number is reported as "X" / 32nds of an inch.
Current Tread Depth is determined by measuring the lowest portion of tread depth of the tire. This number is reported as "X" / 32nds of an inch.
Note that Usable Tread Depth is any amount above 2/32". Thus, 2/32" should be subtracted from the Original Tread Depth and Current Tread Depth before completing any calcuations for pro-rated tire cost.
