Is it one of those warranties that actually means nothing at all?
Well, there are some stipulations concerning the mileage warranty that tend to trip people up. The most common is uneven and irregular wear. That kind of wear is caused by the vehicle - and even though the alignment might be "in spec", the spec is not designed to give good tire wear.

The net effect is that only a small percentager of the tires sold will be in a position to meet ALL the stipulations.
