US Autoforce Tire Protection Plan

Tire Warranty Information
Your tires are an important investment and an integral part of what keeps you safe and sound on the road. At Silver Lake Auto Center it is important to us to keep your tires in tip top shape! Take a look at our tire protection plan, honored at over 30,000 locations nationwide!

This road hazard plan is made by the Independent Dealer from which you purchased the tires. This limited road hazard protection applies to the tires, original purchaser and the original vehicle identified on the purchase receipt. This limited road hazard protection only applies to passenger and light truck tires, which during its tread life or within the covered period of time, becomes unserviceable because of a road hazard. The road hazard protection is optional protection that must be purchased and must appear on your receipt. This road hazard plan is not a plan of U.S. Auto Force or Automotive Business Solutions, Inc., or their affiliates, subsidiaries, their employees or member companies. Automotive Business Solutions, Inc. serves as the administrator only.

A road hazard occurs when a tire fails due to a puncture, bruise or break incurred during the course of normal driving on a maintained road. Nails, glass and potholes would be the most common examples.

What You Must Do To Obtain Service:

  • If within 10 miles of the original facility, you MUST return to the facility where you originally purchased the plan.
  • If you are further than 10 miles from the original facility, contact the program administrator by calling 800-457-0203 for assistance in locating the nearest participating facility.
  • Tire is covered from any damage for 3 years, or until tire is worn to 2/32” tread depth.
  • Also included, free tire rotations and balancing for the life of the tires. This is the greatest value for our customers. We suggest rotations every 6,000 miles.

YOU MUST PRESENT THE ORIGINAL INVOICE SHOWING THE PURCHASE OF THE TIRE(S) AND THE ROAD HAZARD PLAN.

Prior authorization must be obtained to replace a tire damaged by road hazard. The damaged tire must be made available for inspection by the facility and/or the program administrator.

All claims and any required documentation must be submitted to the facility or the administrator within 60 days of the date of failure and/or service.

Tire Replacement: If a tire becomes unserviceable because of a road hazard during the useable tread life of theire, it will be replaced with a new tire. If available, an exact make/model replacement tire will be installed. If not available, a comparable quality tire will be installed. If the tire failure occurs within the first 25% of useable treadwear, and cannot be safely repaired per manufacturer’s guidelines, the tire will be replaced with coverage up to 100% of the original price paid for the tire. After the first 25% of the useable treadwear you will be charged for the consumed useable treadwear on the original tire, times the original selling price of the tire. Treadwear is determined by measuring the tread depth of the tire with a proper gauge. You will be responsible for any taxes, mounting, balancing, and any other miscellaneous fees. When tread is worn down to 2/32” the tire is considered worn out and is not eligible for adjustment. If you want road hazard coverage on the replacement tire, you must purchase road hazard protection for the new tire.

Tire Repair: If your tire is damaged due to a road hazard and can be safely repaired the tire will be repaired per manufacturer’s guidelines at any participating facility. The repair will be provided to you free of charge if performed by the original facility that sold you this plan. If the repair is performed by another facility, the plan will cover up to $20.00 to have the tire repaired. The road hazard coverage will remain in effect until the tire is worn to 2/32”.

Exclusions and Limitations:

The following vehicles are not eligible for coverage: Vehicles with a manfactureer’s load rating capacity of greater than 1 ton. Commercial vehicles. Coverage excludes damage from off-road use, collision, fire, vandalism, theft, snow chains, manufacturer’s defects, abuse and neglect (i.e., improper application, improper inflation, overloading, brake lock up, wheel spinning, torque snags, etc.), cosmetic damage, sidewall abrasions or other appearance items that do not affect the safety or performance of the tire.

Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of consequential and incidental damages, therefore such limitation of exclusion may not apply to you. No expressed guarantees given other than that stated herein. This protection plan gives specific legal rights, you may have other rights which may vary from state to state.
