1.2 ContiSure Warranty Activation – Information Required

Tiger Wheel & Tyre Zimbabwe Customer details will not be disclosed to any third party including CTSA, but will be traceable via the original invoice number, in case of a claim or a dispute.
Each Customer will receive a ContiSure Warranty booklet from the Tiger Wheel & Tyre store at which the sale is concluded. The original invoice will be attached to the booklet and the Customer details & vehicle details page will be completed by the Customer.
The Customer will also acknowledge that the terms and conditions of the warranty have been explained and that full details of the warranty are available on the website.
1.3 Warranted Event
The Customer may claim against this ContiSure Warranty when warranted item(s) are accidentally damaged and becomes irreparable as a result of a cut, bruise, impact break or puncture occurring on a public road, within the borders of Zimbabwe. The date of loss shall be the date on which the accidental damage occurs, and must fall within the Period of Warranty.
Tiger Wheel & Tyre shall credit the Customer for the unused tread value (as explained below) on behalf of CTSA.
1.5 Value Determination
The value Warranted per warranted item is calculated as follows when claiming:
Within 30 (thirty) days or 2,000km (two thousand kilometres):
Should the Warranted event occur within 30 (thirty) days from inception of this ContiSure Warranty or within the first 2,000km (two thousand kilometres) of driving on the warranted item(s) after fitment date as specified on the original sales invoice, whichever comes first, the Customer will receive a full credit towards the purchase of the same or similar new tyre from any Tiger Wheel & Tyre Zimbabwe store, regardless of the remaining tread on the warranted item(s).
After 30 (thirty) days or 2,000km (two thousand kilometres):
For Warranted events occurring after 30 (thirty) days from inception of this ContiSure Warranty or after the first 2,000km (two thousand kilometres) of driving on the warranted item(s), whichever comes first, the value Warranted shall be calculated by firstly measuring the remaining tread of the damaged warranted item(s), and deducting from that the 1.0mm minimum Acceptable tread depth. Such figure represents the remaining tread. The remaining tread of the Warranted item will be expressed as a percentage of the original tread depth and thereafter multiplied by the original purchase price (after discounts) of the warranted item as recorded on the original sales invoice. The monetary value as determined using the above formula in the currency of country claim shall constitute the credit value which the Customer will be entitled to use towards the purchase of a new replacement Continental branded tyre.
Example: Calculation of the Credit Amount: in USD
Should you buy a tyre for $1000 with an original tread depth of 8.0mm, and the remaining tread on the tyre is 6mm, the Credit Amount will be $625 = (6.0mm remaining tread – 1.0mm Acceptable Tread Limit) / 8.0mm original tread x $1000 purchase price = 5mm/8.0mm x $1000 = 62.5% x $1000 = $625
Fitment, balancing and wheel alignment is strongly recommended especially following an event during which a tyre has sustained damage. The cost of the fitting, balancing and any wheel alignment costs are for the customer’s account.
1.6 Limitation of Benefits
1.6.1 The credit amount will not be paid in cash, but paid towards the purchase of a new replacement
Continental branded ye/s fom. The Customer will be liable for the difeenebeeen the cedit amout and eplaemet ost of the new y(s) plus any charges for fitment, balancing and alignment.
1.6.2 Only one claim per warranted item can be made.
1.7 Tread Depth Limit
The Tread Limit is the minimum Acceptable tread limit as stipulated by the underwriter of the Warranty. This minimum Acceptable limit is 1mm across the breadth of the tyre as measured from the lowest point.
In respect of each and every event that gives rise to a claim, the 1mm (one millimetre acceptable limit) will be deducted from the remaining tread and will act as excess. The excess will not apply for a new tyre in the first 30 (thirty) days or 2,000km (two thousand kilometres) whichever comes first. The Charges for fitment, balancing and alignment of replacement item(s) remains the Customer’s responsibility.
1.9 Period of Warranty
This ContiSure Warranty will be valid for 2 (two) years from date of purchase of the warranted item(s) as indicated on the original sales invoice.
The ContiSure Warranty will terminate on the earlier of:
• the tread of the warranted item(s) being worn to the Acceptable Tread Limit of 1.00mm as measured at the time of a claim;
• the expiration of 2 (two) years from date of purchase of the warranted item(s);
• the sale of the warranted item(s) or vehicle to which the tyre was fitted;
• the removal of the warranted item(s) from vehicle to which the items were originally fitted;
• a claim has been paid.
