Pre Mature wear on tires
Posted by My300c on 11/21/2006
NEW JERSEY -- My 2005 Chysler 300c was purchased with Continental Conti Seal tires . After 20,000 miles they were in need of replacement. Dealer sent me to a local tire rep who took information and placed a call to the tire company. I was put on the phone and was told the issue was with my maintenance schedule and improper tire pressure, I proceded to advise them of maintenance reciepts I would furnish for every 5,000 miles/ I was told that was not necessary because tire tread wear was not under warranty. I returned the next morning to drop off the car. The tire dealer informed me that Continental would only afford me a 35% reduciton on replacement tires. I proceded to explain my outrage tom the Continental service rep and was told do to the make of the car and soft tread and driving habits i should be oproud of the life of the tire i got. After further debate I was informed that a refuction of 50% would be granted.After more research I learned that Chysler was reciebing numerous complaints regarding these tires. I called back and informed them that it wasn't my maintenace schedule or my driving habits in fact there were numerous complints received with these tires . I was told I can deny my claim of 50% and return to the dealer for assistance. In closing i put the tires on my car for a cost of over $300 including mounting and balancing and will return to the dealer to see what Chysler is going to do about this. Wish me luck

Once we needed new tires and went to Costco to have them put on. Turned out the tires were Michellin and under waranty. So we got 4 free tires. Apparently they wore out faster then they were suppose to, but we didn't know that. I was very impressed.
