The warranty is something we always have bought, living on gravel roads it seems we always pick up stuff in our tires. When my husband worked night shift and had a flat in the parking lot, he called the 800 number with the warranty, and they met him out there and changed the tire at 4:30 a.m. with no problem. After working in the heat 11 hours at Maytag, he didn't want to deal with that, and didn't have to. I hit a curb and ruined a tire not long after I bought them and they replaced it with no problem. Awesome warranty coverage, free rotation. Good customer service too.
