VIP 200% Low Price Tire Guarantee

At VIP we guarantee our everyday competitive tire prices. If you find a verifiable lower everyday price on an identical stock tire with comparable warranties, at any local retail competitor (Internet Retailers and Membership Clubs are excluded) that has that tire in stock, we’ll match the price plus give you a VIP Rewards Card for 200% of the difference when you buy from us. (Note – the VIP Rewards Card issued for the 200% Low Price Guarantee cannot be used for the tire purchase transaction and is intended to be used for future purchases.)  Just bring us the competitor’s price quote or we’ll call to verify the item’s price that you have found. Competitor’s sale prices, closeouts, special order, discontinued, clearance, liquidation, back ordered and damaged items are excluded.  In cases where a tire is not identical, or sold through a Membership Club, VIP will honor a price match, without extending the 200% Low Price Guarantee.  Current in store price, if lower, overrides VIP’s advertised price. Tires that are installed at VIP will be compared on the total cost of the service.  Comparison must be made between like services and like warranties. Limited to in-stock retail tire sales only.  All price quotes on tires that are on sale are valid for the period of the sale. All other written price quotes are valid for 30 days from the date of the quote.  NOBODY BEATS VIP ON PRICE AND WE GUARANTEE IT!

Tire Warranties and Pro-Rating Guidelines

It is your responsibility as the consumer to follow your vehicle Manufacturer’s tire maintenance recommendations.  This generally includes checking air inflation monthly, frequent tire rotations (usually between 5,000 – 7,000 miles) and ensuring that your vehicle is in proper alignment.  Failure to follow these recommendations can result in shortened tire life as well as decreased performance of the tires.  VIP offers a Tire Protection Plan to help protect you against damage caused to your tires that is not the result of the manufacturing process.  Your tire may also be covered under one or more warranties offered by the tire Manufacturer, or VIP.

Mileage Warranty – This is a specific mileage based warranty that covers you if your tires wear out prematurely based on mileage driven.  This type of warranty applies to tires installed on the original vehicle and is based on normal wear patterns.  Tires that wear out prematurely due to lack of rotations, improper inflation and vehicle misalignment would not be covered.   Tires eligible for Mileage Warranty will be prorated based on usage.

Manufacturer Defect Warranty – this is a warranty that may be time based or mileage based depending on the specific Manufacturer’s policies.   This warranty covers your against defects in the Manufacturing process and eligibility will be determined by inspection of the tire(s) by the Manufacturer.  Tires eligible for Manufacturer’s warranty may either be prorated or replaced without cost depending on the specific Manufacturer’s warranty. 

Pro-Rating is the way we measure the percentage of the tire that has been worn. This calculation applies to our Tire Protection Plan and Manufacturer’s Mileage Warranty claims and in some cases Manufacturer’s Defect claims.   For our Tire Protection Plan and Manufacturer’s Defect warranties we use tread depth measurements to calculate the tread depth used by the consumer.  For Mileage Warranties we use actual mileage to determine miles drive.  To calculate pro-rated credits based on tread depth used we use the following formula: current tread depth minus 2/32” divided by the new tread depth minus 2/32” times the original purchase price of the tire, net any discounts. This will be the amount credited to your purchase of replacement tires.  Measurements are taken at three points across the tread. The lowest tread depth measurement is used for pro-rating.  Tires with 2/32” or less tread at any point across the tread will not be pro-rated.  You are required to present your original Work Order along with the register receipt for verification.

Proper Tire Maintenance and Care

  • Proper tire maintenance is an important safety function often neglected.  Tires are the only contact between your vehicle and the road.  Please follow these important safety guidelines:
  • Consult your owner’s manual prior to replacing any tires or rotating tires and follow the vehicle manufacturer’s tire replacement and rotation specifications.
  • Replace your tires as recommended by the original equipment vehicle manufacturer and only use the proper original equipment size, speed rating, load range and other performance specifications.   ALL WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLES need to follow strict manufacturers’ replacement guidelines.  Consult your owner’s manual BEFORE choosing any tires as improperly matched replacement tires may cause serious mechanical damage including transmission and or drive-train failure.
  • Check your tire pressure monthly. Consult your owner’s manual for proper inflation specifications.
  • Most vehicle manufacturers recommend you properly rotate your tires every 5,000 to 7,000 miles and have your wheels aligned at least once per year.
  • If a tire is damaged, have it inspected by a Rubber Manufacturers Association Certified Tire dealer and follow recommended tire repair guidelines.

AT VIP, WE WILL INSPECT YOUR TIRES FOR FREE AT ANYTIME.

Proper Wheel Torque

After the first 25 miles of driving after your wheels have been removed and replaced or after driving on new wheels or after new tire installations, you should re-torque the wheel lugs in case the clamping loads have changed following the initial installation. This is necessary due to the possibility of metal compression/elongation or thermal stresses affecting the wheels as they are breaking in, as well as to insure the proper manufacturer’s torque specifications are maintained.  AT VIP, WE WILL RETORQUE YOUR WHEELS FOR FREE AT ANYTIME - NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY.

Speed Rating Recommendation

Tires with a lower speed rating may vary in ride, handling and/or other performance characteristics. Failure to follow the OE Manufacturers speed rating recommendations may adversely affect the handling of the vehicle, making it easier to lose control, leading to a serious or fatal accident. In general, replacement tires should have a speed rating equal to or greater than the speed rating of the OE tires.  Always consult your owner’s manual and follow Original Vehicle Manufactures speed rating guidelines.
