MICHELIN passenger and light truck tires that are used in normal service on the vehicle on which they were originally fitted are covered as follows: Workmanship and Materials If there is a defect in workmanship and materials during the life of the original usable tread, or six (6) years from date of purchase (whichever comes first), your tire may be replaced on a pro rata basis under this warranty. After six (6) years or the wear of the original usable tread, whichever occurs first, all warranties, expressed or implied, expire. The "date of purchase" refers to the date on your sales invoice.
