Who is Covered?
The original purchaser of new MICHELIN® X® Tweel® SSL assemblies, bearing a Michelin serial number and purchased on or after July 1, 2018, is covered by the terms and conditions of this limited warranty. Any TWEEL® airless radial tires purchased before this date are covered under the Tweel Limited Warranty dated July 1, 2012.
What is Covered and For How Long?
MICHELIN® X® Tweel® assemblies used in normal service, listed by the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) as being compatible with the size assembly being presented for claim, are covered against workmanship and material for the life of the original usable tread or 3 years from the date of purchase, whichever comes first. The original usable tread depth is the original tread down to the level of 4/32nds (3mm) of tread remaining. At that time, all warranties, express or implied, are terminated. Date of purchase is documented by new OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) vehicle equipment sales invoice or by new Tweel assembly sales invoice. If proof of purchase cannot be documented, the age of the Tweel assembly and replacement eligibility will be determined at the sole discretion of the Michelin Representative or Authorized Michelin Dealer inspecting the Tweel assembly in question. For this reason, it is very important that you retain the proof of purchase documentation. Replacement charge, (if any) will be made based on the condition of the Tweel assembly, as assessed by the Michelin Representative or Authorized Michelin Dealer inspecting the Tweel assembly being submitted for warranty claim.
The MICHELIN® X® Tweel® SSL assemblies have a prorated limited warranty based on tread wear within the first 3 years from date of purchase. The usable MICHELIN® X® Tweel® SSL tread depth is the original tread down to the level of 4/32nds (3mm) of tread remaining. The MICHELIN® X® Tweel® SSL assembly casing is also warranted up to and including the first retread, as long as it remains within the 3 year period from original purchase date. All other MICHELIN® X® Tweel® assemblies carry a 3 year time based prorated limited warranty.

- The attachment of any foreign object or implement (not specifically approved or applied by Michelin) to the interior or exterior of the Tweel assembly

How Replacement Charges for Warranty Claims are Determined
Any MICHELIN® X® Tweel® assembly is covered by this limited warranty that becomes unserviceable due to a workmanship and materials condition, within the time and tread depth limits indicated above, will be replaced with a comparable new MICHELIN® X® Tweel® assembly at the sole discretion of the Michelin Representative inspecting the Tweel assembly. The replacement charge will be determined using such factors as the age of the Tweel assembly, how long it has been in service, and the nature of the application in which the Tweel assembly was being used. (See "What Is Covered and For How Long.")
