Tire Warranty
Does anyone know if feathering of the tires are covered under the warranty? I have less than 2,000 miles on mine with the 18" michelin's and the front tires are feathering already on the outside.

So this tells me the car wasn't aligned right from the factory. I haven't been off road or hit any bumps yet to through the alignment off. :rolleyes:

Re: Tire Warranty
There is a Michelin warranty on the tires.

Since the dealer has to honor both the factory warranty and the Michelin tire warranty, you shouldn't have to worry about Michelin pointing the blame at the car (alignment), because either way, the dealer will have to either replace the "defective" tire under the Michelin warranty, or fix the alignment and replace the tire under the factory warranty.

Re: Tire Warranty
Thank you for the info! I have never had one go out of alignment and feather the tires so early on. I will let everyone know what the dealer says.

Re: Tire Warranty
Well the dealer said the car was out of alignment and it would be covered under warranty, but the tires are not. Any thoughts on how to get them to replace the tires under warranty?

Re: Tire Warranty
Call Chrysler customer service and explain the situation to them, they should intervene on your behalf.
