Michelin is extending its accidental damage guarantee for regional tyres across the UK and Republic of Ireland.
The range of fitments covered has been increased to offer customers even more protection against the financial costs of accidental damage.
The company’s X Multi Guarantee now covers 37 tyre sizes, including Michelin’s most popular products on the replacement and original equipment markets. This marks an increase of 34 fitments from the previous scheme – and includes all X Multi and X MultiWay regional tyres, in all available sizes.
The guarantee promises to refund operators for any accidental damage suffered before a tyre is 50% worn, provided it has been registered on the company’s dedicated customer web portal within one month of purchase.
Chris Smith, head of truck marketing at Michelin, said: “Michelin invests more than £550 million in research and development every year so we’re confident that our tyres are extremely hard wearing.
“Michelin tyres are designed to be particularly durable, and offer superior on-road performance, fuel efficiency and safety over a long service life. Extending our accidental damage guarantee demonstrates the confidence we have in our tyres.”
The exact refund offered under the X Multi Guarantee is calculated against the remaining tread depth of the tyre, and based on a fixed price of £385 for 22.5” tyres, £300 for 19.5” fitments and £200 for 17.5” tyres.
