NO WARRANTY POLICY

Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. offers racing tires for sale only upon the conditions and the terms contained in this disclaimer of liability and indemnity. Due to many varied and different conditions which Hoosier Racing Tires and Tubes are exposed and because of the manner in which racing is conducted, Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. makes absolutely no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the fitness for a general or particular purpose or of merchantability in connection with any offer of sale of Hoosier Racing Tires and Tubes. "HOOSIER RACING TIRES AND TUBES ARE SOLD AS IS." Race Tires are not tested or labeled to meet FMVSS 109 or ECE36 Safety Standards. Therefore it is dangerous and illegal to sell race tires for use on public highways. Any person selling Hoosier Racing Tires or Tubes for highway use agrees to indemnity and reimburse Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. for all loss, damage, or liability Hoosier Racing Tire Corp. may suffer because of such sales. Not applicable where prohibited by law. Not following these warnings CAN CAUSE SEVERE INJURY OR DEATH. For more information read tire labels, follow manufacturer's warnings as molded in tire sidewalls and visit hoosiertire.com.

WARNING

Verify Correct Wheel and Bead Flange: All tires are designed to be used on wheels that are manufactured to Tire and Rim Association (T&RA) specifications and tolerances. Some rims are non-standard or damaged and it is necessary to inspect the rim flange to assure proper fit. Consult your specific rim manufacturer to determine if your rim can be used in this application. Never attempt to install and inflate a tire of one bead diameter on a rim or wheel of a different bead diameter. Use of Hoosier Racing Tires on wheels with incorrect bead flanges or wheels that do not meet T&RA standards can cause the assembly to fail and burst with explosive force sufficient to cause serious personal injury or death.

WARNING

Special Tire Mounting Instructions: Tire changing should be done only by trained personnel using proper tools and procedures. Failure to follow safe mounting procedures could cause faulty positioning of the tire and cause the assembly to burst with explosive force sufficient to cause serious injury or death. Always inspect tire for kinked beads or other possible damage that may have occurred in shipping or storage. Clean rim and lubricate beads with rubber lubricant. Always lock rim on mounting machine or place in safety cage. Use a clip on chuck, an inline valve with a pressure gauge or adjustable regulator and remote inflation/deflation device. Have enough air hose to stay out of the trajectory. Stand Back. (See: Hoosier Race Tire Mounting Instructions)

WARNING

When seating beads never exceed maximum bead seating pressure as molded in tire sidewall. Never exceed manufacturer's maximum inflation pressure.  

WARNING

NOT FOR HIGHWAY USE: All Hoosier Racing Tires including DOT labeled Hoosier Racing Tires are designed for racing purposes only on specified racing surfaces and are not to be operated on public roadways. DOT labeled Hoosier Racing Tires meet Department Of Transportation requirements for marking and performance only and are NOT INTENDED FOR HIGHWAY USE. It is unsafe to operate any Hoosier Racing Tire including DOT tires on public roads. The prohibited use of Hoosier Racing Tires on public roadways may result in loss of traction, unexpected loss of vehicle control, or sudden loss of tire pressure, resulting in a vehicle crash and possible injury or death.

WARNING

Service Life For Race Tires: Old tires can fail in use, causing loss of vehicle control and personal injury. Environmental conditions like temperature extremes, exposure to sunlight, electric arc, solvents, automotive fluids, and atmospheric pollutants accelerate the aging process. Hoosier Racing Tire strongly recommends that new (sticker) tires should be put in service within 2 years of date of purchase. Used (scuffed) tires have a shorter service life than new (sticker) tires. Poor storage and infrequent use accelerate the aging process.

 WARNING

Chemical Treatment of Tires: Hoosier Racing Tire strictly forbids any chemical alteration of the tire carcass and/or tread compound, such as tire "soaking" or use of tread "softener." Hoosier Racing Tire strictly forbids the physical defacement (removal, altering or covering), of tire sidewall markings in any manner. Failure to comply with this warning could result in premature or catastrophic tire failure and may result in serious injury or death.

All tire rule spec tires are not displayed on this website. Please contact local distributor for further information.
