MICHELIN® X® Tweel® SSL Limited Warranty

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, 2012, is covered by the terms and conditions of this limited warranty.

What is Covered and For How Long?

MICHELIN® X® Tweel® SSL assemblies used in normal service on a skid steer loader, listed by the OEM 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 5 years from the date of purchase, whichever comes first. At that time, all warranties, express or implied, are terminated. The usable tread is the original tread down to the level of (3mm) 4/32nds of tread remaining. Date of purchase is documented by new 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 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 inspecting the Tweel assembly in question.

What is Not Covered?

MICHELIN® X® Tweel® SSL assemblies which become unserviceable due to:

  • The attachment of any foreign object or implement (not specifically approved or applied by Michelin) to the interior or exterior of the Tweel assembly
  • Impact damage, cuts, snags, machine damage, machine accident/collision, fire , mis-mounting, chemical corrosion, lightning, or contact with electrical power lines, overload, misapplication, misuse, neglect, operation at excessive speed, environmental temperatures outside the range of -40F-240F, chain damage, and/or mechanical condition of the vehicle
  • loss of time, inconvenience, loss of use of vehicle, or consequential damage
  • Tweel assemblies over 5 years old, based on new vehicle sales invoice, new Tweel assembly sales invoice or determination by a Michelin Representative
  • Improper repair
  • Ozone or weather cracking

How Replacement Charges for Warranty Claims are Determined

Any MICHELIN® X® Tweel® SSL 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® SSL 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.")

What Owners Must Do

When making a claim under the terms and conditions of this limited warranty, the owner must present the Tweel assembly and documentation showing the date of purchase to the appropriate Michelin Sales Representative. Personal identification may be required and the vehicle on which the Tweel assembly was/were mounted must be available for inspection.
