DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, MOUNT ANY SPECIALTY TIRES OF AMERICA PRODUCED TIRE (STA TIRE) ON A WHEEL THAT DOES NOT MEET TIRE AND RIM ASSOCIATION STANDARDS.

Use of STA tires on wheels that do not meet Tire & Rim Association standards can cause the assembly to fail and burst with explosive force sufficient to cause serious personal injury or death.

STA tires are intended to be used exclusively on tire rims designed and manufactured to comply with Tire & Rim Association standards and specifications. Any person using STA tire on wheels that do not meet Tire & Rim Association standards and specifications or on damaged wheels assumes responsibility for these dangerous actions and agrees to reimburse Specialty Tires of America (and its affiliated companies) for all loss, damage, or cost it may suffer because of such actions.

Wheel standards and specifications can be obtained by writing to: Tire & Rim Association, 175 Montrose West Avenue, Suite 150, Copley, Ohio 44321 or by consulting your rim manufacturer. Consult your rim manufacturer to determine if your rim can be used with the tire selected for your application.

Tire Mounting Instructions

IT IS ABSOLUTELY IMPORTANT THAT TIRE MOUNTING IS PERFORMED ONLY BY SPECIALLY TRAINED PERSONNEL USING PROPER TOOLS AND PROCEDURES.

Failure to follow safe mounting procedures can result in faulty positioning of the tire and cause the assembly to burst with explosive force sufficient to cause serious personal injury or death.

Clean rim and lubricate beads with rubber lubricant.

Always lock rim on mounting machine or place assembly in a safety cage. Use an air hose with clip on chuck and extension air gauge.

NEVER exceed 40 psi to seat beads on rim. Excessive air pressure can damage the tire and cause it to violently blow off the wheel.

IF THE TIRE BEADS DO NOT SEAT, STOP! RELEASE ALL AIR FROM THE TIRE, AND CONTACT SPECIALTY TIRES OF AMERICA OR A TRAINED MOUNTING PROFESSIONAL.

There is a danger of serious injury or death if a tire of one bead diameter is installed on a rim or wheel of a different rim diameter. Always replace a tire with another tire of exactly the same bead diameter designation and suffix letters. For example, a 16″ tire mounts on a 16″ rim. Never mount a 16″ tire on a 16.1″ or 16.5″ rim. A 16.1″ tire mounts on a 16.1″ rim. Never mount a 16.1″ tire on a 16″ or 16.5″ rim. A 16.5″ tire mounts on a 16.5″ rim. Never mount a 16.5″ tire on a 16″ or a 16.1″ rim.

WHAT IS WARRANTED

If, before wearing down to 2/32nds of an inch of tread or bar depth remaining, any tire covered by this Limited Warranty becomes unusable for a condition of material or factory workmanship within the manufacturer’s control, such tire will be replaced with an equivalent new Specialty Tires of America tire on the basis set forth in the section titled “Limited Warranty Period and Pro Rata Percentages” below.  Some examples of causes or conditions not covered by this warranty are:

  1. Field,  road hazards, or stubble damage (e.g. cut, snag, puncture, stubble damage, impact break, tear or chunk in tread, bar or shoulder);
  2. Apparent overload or improper inflation pressure or other abuse;
  3. Wheel misalignment, rim slip, tire/wheel assembly imbalance, mismatching of adjacent tires, or other vehicle conditions, defects or characteristics;

LIMITED WARRANTY PERIOD AND PRO RATA PERCENTAGES

During the first year of service (proof-of-purchase must be attached to claim form), if the tire is worn less than 25%, the tire will be replaced without charge excluding normal mounting and service charges.  After the free replacement period, the replacement price will be prorated based on years of service from the original purchase date (proof-of-purchase must be attached to claim form, or if proof-of-purchase is not available or if tire was not purchased new, then based on years from date of manufacture, which is molded into the sidewall of the tire) as follows: If wear is more than indicated in any year, the Pro Rata Collection shall be based upon extent of wear irrespective of the year of service or age.
