GLADIATOR X COMP TIRES LIMITED WARRANTY
100% FREE REPLACEMENT WARRANTY
American Pacific Industries, Inc (API) hereby warrants every new Gladiator X Comp tire for workmanship and material related conditions for the life of the original tread of a new tire less 2/32”. The life of the original usable tread ends when the tire tread has worn down with only 2/32” remaining as measured in the fastest wearing groove, at which point the tire is considered to be fully worn out. API will replace the Gladiator X Comp tire with a new Gladiator X Comp tire. All Exclusions listed below void this 100% Free Replacement Warranty. Conditions and coverage are subject to change at any time and without notice.
A) The worn Gladiator X Comp tire must be replaced with a comparable new Gladiator X Comp tire by an authorized Gladiator X Comp dealer. Copy of invoice will be required.
B) 100% free replacement applies to new first quality tires only. Retreads, tires unserviceable due to Road Hazard and tires described under Exclusions below are not covered.
C) Adjustments on ride complaints or out of round tires are excluded from this warranty if they are worn past 2/32” from the original usable tread of the new tire.
All API passenger and LT tires are covered by the 30 Day “Satisfaction Assured” trial period. If, for any reason, other than an excluded condition listed in the respective tire’s Standard Warranty, you are not satisfied with your new set of tires within 30 days of date of purchase – or the first 2/32nds of tread wear as measured in the fastest wearing groove (whichever comes first) – you may exchange all or any one of them for the same number of the same design or similar design API manufactured tires. Mounting and balancing are free of charge (excluding online orders). Owner pays all applicable taxes. If you wish to exchange for another set of API manufactured tires that have a higher cost, you must pay the upgrade from the original purchase price, including shipping and all applicable taxes.

This Satisfaction Assurance guarantee only applies to the original new set of manufactured passenger and LT tires purchased and not to the replacement tires under this guarantee.

LIMITED WARRANTY ON SPECIFIC X COMP TIRES
No tire manufacturer or dealer can assure that you will achieve a certain number of driven miles or months of use from a given tire because driving habits, road & driving conditions, & vehicle maintenance & condition all play a role in tire tread life & all differ with each purchaser. However, the X Comp tire lines listed in the Tread Life Warranty Table at the end of this Limited Warranty are warranted for a specified number of actual miles driven or months of installation (“Tread Life”) on the original vehicle, whichever first occurs. The X Comp tire lines not specifically identified in the Tread Life Warranty Table are not covered by a Tread Life Limited Warranty & are only warranted against defects in material & workmanship.
If you purchased an X Comp tire identified in one of the Tread Life Warranty Tables & the tire wears evenly, but fails to provide the number of warranted miles of use, you are entitled to receive a prorated allowance applicable to the purchase price of a comparable new replacement X Comp tire or another brand of tire offered by API Brands. The amount of the warranty replacement allowance is based on the “Usable Tread Life” of each warranted X Comp tire line. The amount of the allowance will be equal to the percentage of the warranted Usable Tread Life remaining (miles) when the end of tire’s Usable Tread Life has been reached.
A tire’s “Usable Tread Life” is the original tread groove depth down to the tread wear safety indicator bars that are molded into the tire groove. The tread wear indicators are reached when only 2/32nds of an inch of tire tread remains. A tire has delivered its full “Usable Tread Life” when its original new tire tread has become worn down to the tread wear indicators at 2/32” (1.6 millimeters) of tread remaining. Tires become unsafe for use & must be replaced to avoid accident or injury when the tread depth remaining is 2/32” or less. The Limited Tread Life Warranty does not cover & you are responsible for the charges for mounting & balancing the replacement tire, & applicable taxes.
