Continental Tires India Announces 5-Year Warranty On Truck, Bus Tyres
Published On 16-Jul-2021
The ‘Conti Bharosa’ will also cover the second life of tyres by warranting against any manufacturing defects after the first retread for tyres used in normal load applications.
Continental Tires India on Friday launched ‘Conti Bharosa’ - a warranty program that provides five-year warranty policy for bus and truck tyres. The program will also cover the first retread for normal load applications.
The five-year warranty coverage program provided by the Continental Tires is nearly twice as much as the coverage traditionally provided by the tyre manufacturers in India. In addition to this, Conti Bharosa also covers the second life of tyres by warranting against any manufacturing defects after the first retread for tyres used in normal load applications.
Continental Tires said, retreading is a common industry practice globally and is fast catching up in India as well. The practice of retreading can potentially save more than 50 percent of the cost of a new tyre. However, it is often ignored in traditional warranty programs.
By offering a casing warranty even after the first retread, Continental says it is demonstrating its confidence in its casing strength and durability.
Claude d’Gama Rose, Managing Director, Continental Tires India said that “through Conti Bharosa, Continental Tires offers peace of mind to all its customers and the 5-year warranty policy, which covers first retread for tyres used in normal load applications, enforces the reliability and superior quality of Continental products.”
“He further stated that the additional features of the program also offer support to the consumers, by increasing the average lifespan of tyres and ensuring more safety on the road.”
“Commercial vehicles in India typically cover thousands of kilometres in a day. Tyres are crucial to the driver and other vehicles’ safety on the road. In these trying times, Conti Bharosa reinforces our strong commitment to fleet owners and operators by offering support beyond the traditional lifespan thus maximizing safety and profitability for fleets,” added Shantanu Roy, Head Sales & Marketing Commercial Vehicle Tyres.
