As of 2015, Continental tires for passenger cars and light trucks, including temporary spare tires, come with a limited warranty that lasts up to 72 months after the date of purchase. This warranty covers free replacement of tires and mounting and balancing for the first year.
After the first 12 months, tires may be eligible for a pro rata replacement. The warranty does not cover damages due to road hazards, repair, improper operation or improper maintenance. Also excluded from coverage are ride/vibration complaints and damages due to improper mounting or dismounting, alteration, and mileage. Tires of vehicles registered outside the United States and Canada are excluded from this warranty. The full details of the policy can be downloaded from the company’s website.
