Extended Tyre Warranty

  • The Extended Tyre Warranty is available on all tyres (excluding run flat tyres and winter tyres) sold by any subsidiary of Halfords Group plc providing that a warranty is purchased at the point of purchase of the tyre and subject to the exclusions in the terms and conditions.
  • If a defect is found during the legal lifetime of the tyre (i.e. upto 1.6mm remaining tread depth), which cannot be repaired to British Standard BSAU/159 then the customer will be given a discount on a new tyre depending on how much tread remains on the tyre.

  23. Refitting, rebalancing and standard valves will not be charged for unless the vehicle requires a specialist valve, for example but not limited to a TPMS sensor valve for which there will be a charge.
