What is covered by this warranty?
This Limited Warranty applies to any new Goodyear aircraft tire or inner-tube furnished or sold by Goodyear and bearing Goodyear's name, or any aircraft tire retreaded by Goodyear, in each case bearing a complete serial number (collectively, "Tires").
What is not covered by this warranty?
This Limited Warranty does not cover any condition present as a result of a Tire having been exposed or subjected to:
- alteration, modification, maintenance, repair, installation, handling, transportation, storage, operation or use after delivery that, in Goodyear's judgment, is improper or otherwise not in compliance with the aircraft manufacturer's or Goodyear's published Care & Maintenance Manual instructions; or
- accident, contamination, foreign object damage, abuse, neglect or negligence occurring after delivery; or
- damage caused by any aircraft part not supplied by Goodyear,
Tire Repairs and Replacements for Covered Tires
If a Tire with a covered warranty condition becomes unserviceable, Goodyear will, at its option, (a) provide a credit or other allowance deemed suitable by Goodyear or (b) replace such Tire with a comparable Tire at a reduced cost. Such credit or allowance, or the cost of the replacement tire, will be determined on a prorated basis by the Tire's percentage of remaining groove depth (or, in the case of inner-tubes, time in service) and Goodyear's most recent "AP-3" price list, less any applicable discounts. A "comparable" Tire may be the same line of tire or another line. Whether a Tire has a covered warranty condition will be determined by Goodyear after Goodyear's inspection of the returned product.
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OF GOODYEAR WITH RESPECT TO GOODYEAR AVIATION TIRES, TUBES AND RETREADED AVIATION TIRES, WHETHER WRITTEN OR ORAL, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WHICH ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED. IN NO EVENT SHALL GOODYEAR BE LIABLE UNDER THIS WARRANTY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. GOODYEAR'S LIABILITY SHALL NOT EXCEED THE NET PURCHASE PRICE OF THE TIRE, AFTER ALL DISCOUNTS. NO EXTENSION OF THIS WARRANTY SHALL BE BINDING UPON GOODYEAR UNLESS SET FORTH IN WRITING AND SIGNED BY A GOODYEAR AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE.
To the extent any Tire condition is covered by any other warranty, such as a warranty from a third party repairer, Goodyear will have no responsibility for that condition.
How Do You Submit a Warranty Claim?
To submit a claim under this Limited Warranty, the Tire must be returned to the point of purchase, freight prepaid, by the owner or end-user for inspection and submission of any required claim forms.
