Tire Warranty

Our quality policy for guaranteeing customers’ safety. Hankook is constantly striving to ensure the highest quality of goods.

Replacement Warranty

  • Passenger Car/Light Truck
    • Warranty Terms

      This limited warranty applies to the original purchaser of any new tire manufactured by HANKOOK Tire and Technology bearing Department of Transportation prescribed tire identification numbers. Eligible tires shall be used on the vehicle on which they were originally installed according to the vehicle manufacturer’s or Hankook’s recommendation. This warranty applies if all following qualification requirements are met:

      • The tire was purchased after January 1, 2020.
      • The tire is a size, load rating and speed rating equal to or greater than that recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
      • The tire has not become unserviceable due to a condition listed under WHAT IS NOT COVERED.
      • The tire is 6 years from the date of manufacture or 6 years from the date of purchase, whichever benefits the customer.
    • What Is Covered And For How Long

      Should any tire covered by this limited warranty become unusable due to a workmanship or material related condition during its usable tread life (more than 2/32 nds remaining tread), Hankook will give a credit on the following conditions:

      • 1)During the first 2/32 nds of the original usable tread and one year from date of purchase: Tire will be replaced with a comparable new Hankook produced tire free of charge, including mounting and balancing charges. Applicable taxes on the new tire and cost of any other charges in connection with the replacement of the tire are required to be paid by the owner.
      • 2)After the first 2/32 nds of the original usable tread or after one year from date of purchase, whichever occurs first: The amount of the credit will be determined by multiplying the pre-determined adjustment price for the tire (excluding taxes) by the percentage of original trade depth.

      Free replacement workmanship warranty not applicable to snow tires.

      • 1)If the above eligible tire wears out (wears down to 2/32 nds remaining depth) before the warranty miles under the normal passenger use, Hankook will make an allowance for unused service toward the purchase of a new tire of the same size and type, prorated on warranted miles.
      • 2)The replacement allowance will be calculated by percentage of the warranted miles not received, multiplied to the predetermined adjustment price of the tire at the time and place of the adjustment. A mileage projection will be calculated based on average wear per 1/32 nds to calculate the remaining miles before the tire is worn out (2/32 nds remaining).
      • 3)To take advantage of this warranty, the owner shall submit warranty card within 30 days from the date of purchase, which records the purchasing and vehicle information (Warranty card must be mailed to Hankook Tire Canada Corp.)

    • User Guide for ST Tires

      Hankook Special Trailer (ST) tires are designed specifically for non-driven trailer axles. Hankook Special Trailer (ST) tires are designed to maximize the performance of your utility trailers, equipment trailers, car trailers, travel trailers and much more.
      When purchasing ST tire(s) for your trailer, be sure to use the original trailer tire size or the trailer manufacturer’s recommended size for your specific application. Also, be sure that your new ST tires’ load and speed rating are at least equal to or greater than the trailer manufacturer’s recommendation.

      The recommended inflation pressures for Special Trailer (ST) tires are indicated on the trailer tire placard, certification label, or in the owner’s manual. Never set tire inflation pressures below the recommended inflation pressure found on the trailer tire placard, certification label or owner’s manual. Under inflation causes excessive heat build-up and internal structural damage that may lead to a tire failure, even at a later date. Do not exceed the maximum inflation pressure shown on tire sidewall. Over inflated tires (inflated over the maximum pressure figure molded on the tire sidewall) are more likely to be cut, punctured, or damaged by sudden impact from hitting an obstacle, such as a pothole.

      To maintain the correct pressure in Special Trailer (ST) tires, check the inflation pressure regularly with a properly calibrated pressure gauge that has an adequate range to check the tires. A dual head gauge is recommended to check dual tires. Even if it is difficult to check the inflation pressures of inside tires in dual fitments, it is imperative that these inflation pressures be checked and properly maintained because the inside dual tires are subjected to more severe operating conditions, such as:

      • Reduced air flow around the outer surface of the tire
      • Higher heat exposure due to proximity to brakes
      • Crowned road surfaces (which can cause inside dual tires to support more of the load than the outside dual tires)

      Inflation pressure enables a tire to support the load and to control the vehicle, therefore proper inflation is critical. With the correct inflation pressure, the vehicle and the tires will achieve their optimal performance. In addition to tire safety, this means tires will wear longer and optimize fuel efficiency.

      Check inflation pressure when tires are cold, that is, when the trailer has been parked for at least 3 hours or has been driven less than one mile at moderate speeds. The inflation pressure in all tires, including the spare tire and inside duals, should be checked with an accurate tire gauge at least once per month and before each trip. A best practice is to check inflation pressure each morning before driving. This includes vehicles equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Maintaining proper inflation pressure promotes proper tire safety, maximizes fuel economy and optimizes overall tire performance.

      Never “bleed” or reduce inflation pressure when tires are hot from driving, as it is normal for pressures to increase above recommended cold pressures. If a hot tire pressure reading is at or below recommended cold inflation pressure it may be dangerously under inflated. In this case, immediately determine the cause and/or have the tire checked by a tire service professional. Significant changes in altitude or ambient temperature at which a trailer will regularly operate will result in changes in inflation pressure and will require an inflation pressure check and adjustment. When using your trailer, be sure you are within the manufacturers recommended load rating, so the tires do not become overloaded. Overloading the trailer tires can cause uneven/irregular wear to the tires and may lead to a blowout causing injury or even death.

      Inspection of your Special Trailer tires is an important function. Frequent (at least monthly) and before/after using trailer, inspection of your tires for signs of damage and their general condition is important for safety. If you observe or experience impact, impact damage, penetrations, cracks, bulges or air loss, your tires should be dismounted and inspected by an expert. Once your ST tire(s) reach 2/32 nds of an inch of tread depth, replace them, as they are worn out.

      Once your ST tire(s) reach 2/32 nds of an inch of tread depth, replace them, as they are worn out.

    • Maintenance Guide for ST Tires

      When storing your new ST tires, be sure to stack the tires flat, do not stand them up as this could create flat spots on the tire(s). If you need to store them outside, be sure they are elevated from the ground and not in direct sunlight. When storing your ST tire(s) be sure to not store them near ozone gases if possible.

      If you are storing your trailer with Hankook ST tires mounted for an extended period, be sure to store them in a cool, dry environment if possible. Also try to elevate the trailer axle(s) if possible so the tires do not deform.
