TBC improves casing warranty for truck tires

Posted on July 7, 2014

TBC Wholesale Group has increased casing allowances as part of warranty improvements to its Sailun brand of medium radial truck tires, which include the Environmentally Friendly Technology (EFT) series of fuel efficient tires.

The improved warranty took effect on May 1, 2014, and includes:

* free tire replacement period to 50% of the original tread life if the tire becomes unserviceable due to workmanship or material defects; and

* limited warranty coverage to 60 months against defects in workmanship or materials for all Sailun brand medium truck tires and to 72 months for all Sailun’s SmartWay-verified tires, which are designated by the EFT logo.

In addition, casing allowances were increased and are consistent for the both first and second retread, according to the company.

“Sailun delivers a tremendous value, with long, even wear, dependable service, consistent and multiple retreads, and now a warranty to match; which is all part of the ‘Sailun Advantage,’” says Brad Feeney, manager of commercial tires for TBC Wholesale.
