Our Warranty

Michelin® Aircraft Tyre's warranty details.

Michelin Standard Limited Warranty for New/Retreaded Tires

What is covered under this warranty?

When used in accordance with the Tire & Rim Association’s recommendations, and the applicable Michelin Care and Service Manual, every aircraft tire, either originally manufactured by Michelin, or retreaded by Michelin on a Michelin casing or on a non-Michelin casing inspected by Michelin, bearing the MICHELIN name and a complete serial number, is warranted to be free from defects in workmanship and material. 

What does Michelin's warranty cover in terms of financial responsibility? 

Michelin’s warranty with respect thereto is limited, however, to client net purchase price after cash and other discounts of any such tire proved defective, or, at Michelin’s option, to the repair or replacement of such tire upon its return to Michelin, transportation charges prepaid, and in either case after a pro-rata charge for any service obtained from the tire. 

Are there any exclusions to the express warranties provided by Michelin? 

Except as expressly stated above, Michelin makes no other warranty, express or implied. For the US only: other than as to title, and Michelin specifically disclaims the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. The foregoing warranties are given and accepted in lieu of any and all other warranties, guarantees, obligations, rights, and remedies, express or implied, whether based on negligence, contract, strict liability, tort, or otherwise. 

Does the warranty extend to tires manufactured by third parties or retreaded with non-Michelin materials? 

For the avoidance of doubt, the terms of this warranty shall not extend to any third-party manufactured tires supplied by Michelin, or tires retreaded with non-Michelin materials. In such cases, Michelin will transfer the third party’s published warranty for said tires only. 

What is Michelin’s liability under this warranty? 

In no event will Michelin be liable for any incidental, consequential, or special damages. Michelin specifically disclaims any and all liability for any kind of damage caused by tires retreaded with non-Michelin materials.
