WAKEFIELD, Mass. — Alliance Tire Americas Inc. (ATA) is increasing the warranty coverage on some of its Alliance-, Galaxy- and Primex-brand radial steel-belted farm tires in North America to as long as 10 years,
Alliance said its decision to increase the warranty coverage reflects both the quality of new manufacturing capacities installed over the past few years, as well as process and expertise that has resulted from collaboration with Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd., which acquired ATG in 2016.
The warranty in effect for Alliance Tire Group ag tires manufactured before Jan. 1 covers Alliance- and Galaxy-brand agricultural tires for up to five years, the company said. The new policy will increase that coverage for tires manufactured or purchased on or after Jan. 1 by two to five years, depending on the tire.
The 10-year coverage applies to steel-belted radial agricultural tires, ATA said, including all the IV and VF ag tires as well as many of the popular high-speed flotation radials like the 380 and 390. Other ag tires are covered in a similar manner for up to seven years.
The new warranty policy provides 100-percent compensation for up to two years for tires within wear limits (25 percent), while there is a sliding scale based on tire age and degree of wear for years three through 10, Alliance said.
The simplified policy also includes 7-year workmanship and materials coverage on ATA's standard agricultural tires, and a 3- year stubble and hazard warranty on specific farm tires.
"Our tires help customers make their living in some of the toughest environments on earth," ATA President Dhaval Nanavati said.
"To accomplish that, we draw on some of the best design, engineering and manufacturing capacity worldwide. What we're offering to our customers with this new 10-year program is more than just a warranty, it's a statement of quality."
Alliance, Galaxy and Primex customers may use the company's ATG Warranty Wizard app for filing warranty claims. The app makes it simple to use a smartphone to submit photos and claim data directly to the company for processing within one to two business days.
