Interesting. No warranty would IMO place Continental tires on a not recommended list.
In my post of "Best Tire" the availability and length of warranty were features I suggested be used when making tire purchase decision.

Did you ask your Ford dealer why Ford selected a tire with no warranty?

I have had a couple of cars that the OEM tires were not warrantied the same as aftermarket.
I just looked on the Canadian continental site and under the SUV/truck tires I could not see any warranty information.

Maybe it is Ford Canada that covers OE tires. One can hope the tires selected were good enough to have a warranty in the first place what with Ford's history with tires and the tenancy for some vehicles to roll over.

People forget, Firestone tires on Fords. Roll overs, bad tires and drivers.

Ya except rollovers continued even after tire brand was changed.

I found a pdf document from Ford on tire warranty , not sure from what year, it said that continental tires were prorated to 72 months or 2/32". So I am surprised that there would be no warranty.

Given the age and tread depth it probably is not worth the time and effort for a warranty replacement. i doubt you would get much for the tire after adjustment. Later RJD

I'm going to see the dealer tomorrow. We will be discussing the crappy Continental tires, and the equally crappy warranty. Having said that, I know that after the first year, Ford does not warranty tires or batteries or windshield wiper blades or radiator hoses or ......

Starting to sound like rv dealers...yes?

When I purchase a new vehicle I go to Discount Tire and buy the warranty. No need to replace the whole set unless you suspect the whole set it bad. 1 tire does not indicate a bad set. We threw the tread on 2 of our trailer tires in less than 100 miles. I had grown the tread on another one 6 months prior. I knew they had been run low pressure. I replaced the set and Goodyear warranties them out.
