AKRON, Ohio — The warranty of four premium Dunlop brand commercial truck tire casings has been extended from four years to six years, a first for the Dunlop brand.

The casings include the Dunlop SP193 FM, the Dunlop SP384 FM, the Dunlop SP456 FM and the Dunlop SP464 in sizes 11R22.5, 11R24.5, 285/75R24.5 and 295/75R22.5.

Three of the tires – the SP193 FM, the SP384 FM and the SP456 FM – are on the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay list of verified technologies.

The warranty extension from four years to six years “is an important breakthrough for the Dunlop brand and Dunlop dealers,” according to Larry Tucker, segment marketing manager.

“The enhanced warranty gives Dunlop dealers a major competitive advantage when selling these four casings and promoting the Dunlop brand overall. It’s a premium warranty that complements the premium technology found in Dunlop truck tires,” Tucker said.

If retreaded by a Goodyear Authorized Retreader, the casings will be warranted for covered conditions for an unlimited number of retreads for a period of six years from the date of the casing Department of Transportation serial number or proof of purchase, if available.

Casing allowances are $100, for both the United States and Canada. For a copy of the warranty, please download this PDF: http://www.dunloptrucktires.com/resources/pdf/warranty-medium-truck-tire.pdf

Dunlop truck tires are part of the Goodyear Commercial Tire Systems portfolio of products.
