Pirelli drops road hazard warranty in Canada

Dec. 15, 2004

Pirelli Tire North America Inc. is ending its passenger and light truck tire road hazard warranty program in Canada on Jan. 1.

"It served its purpose" for consumers, a Pirelli official told moderntiredealer.com "But from a manufacturer´s point of view, it´s very costly."

Bridgestone/Firestone Canada Inc., Goodyear Canada Inc. and Michelin North America (Canada) Inc. also are dropping their road hazard warranties at the end of the month.
