Manufacturer's Rebate Instruction


Rebate Tips
1. Read your Pep Boys rebate form thoroughly. Each Pep Boys rebate offer is unique, with different date ranges and postmark date requirements. Many rebates require the purchase of multiple products. You must submit all qualifying products listed for a given rebate to be eligible. The best way to make sure you get your rebate is to follow the instructions carefully. If you have any questions, call us at the toll-free number listed on the rebate form or call your local Pep Boys store.

2. Make copies of all of your paperwork. This includes your receipt, rebate form, mailing envelope, and any other items that are needed for validation of your rebate. If for some reason your submission gets lost in the mail, you will need this information to have your rebate reprocessed. It is also a good idea to have this information in front of you if you need to call the customer service phone number listed on your rebate form.

3. Don't wait. Many Pep Boys rebates require your rebate submission to be postmarked within a set number of days from your date of purchase. If you miss this deadline, you will not be able to receive your rebate.

4. Clearly write your name and address on the rebate form. If your handwriting is difficult to read, it will be difficult to enter your information correctly. To ensure fast, accurate processing of your rebate, be sure to print clearly. Remember also that PO boxes are not acceptable addresses for Pep Boys rebates, so be sure to include your street address when you complete your offer form.

Road Hazard Warranty

Protect Your Investment
What will our Road Hazard Warranty do for you?

Repair
Pep Boys will follow its Puncture Repair Procedures to determine if your tire should be repaired, at no expense, or replaced under this coverage. While the repair cost is free, there will be a charge for re-balancing a repaired tire.

Replacement
Road Hazard Warranty can save you the expense of tire replacement. If your Pep Boys tire becomes unusable due to a road hazard related mishap and cannot be repaired, we will, subject to pro-rated adjustment based upon the remaining usable tread on the tire, replace the unusable tire or give you a refund. While Pep Boys will remount the tire for free, there will be a cost for re-balancing the replacement tire.

Coverage extends to such damage as unrepairable tread punctures damage from potholes, nails, glass and jagged metal which cause cuts, snags, punctures, impact breaks, bruises and rim cuts.

Length Of Coverage
Coverage with Road Hazard Warranty extends for the full period of the mileage of the tire. This coverage is not transferable to a new owner, or if the owner mounts the tires on another vehicle.Close [x]

Core Charge

A "Core Charge" is similar to the deposit you might pay for a can or bottle of soda. In many states, to promote recycling, you are charged a deposit when you purchase a can of soda and you receive your deposit back when you return the empty can. Many automotive parts have a Core Charge, or Core Price, that works the same way as a soda can deposit.

Here's how the Core Charge works:
  • The part you are purchasing contains a component that is recyclable
  • The Core Charge deposit is charged at the time of purchase
  • When the recyclable component from your old part is returned to us, the charge is refunded to you
  • To receive your Core Charge refund, you can do either of the following:
  • Bring the part to any Pep Boys store along with your receipt or invoice (recommended)
  • Mail the part back to Pep Boys through the online return process
  • Please see our Returns Policy for more information on returning a core item.
Core Charges are often mandated by state legislature, and, as such, the actual core charge and taxes on the charge may vary depending on the state in which you buy your part. The Pep Boys core charge presented to you online today with your item is representative of the most common core charge. If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-PEP-BOYS (737-2697) or visit any Pep Boys store. Close [x]

SAFETY RATING

Safety Rating is a combination of two values: Load Index and Speed Rating for P-Metric and Euro Metric tire sizes; and Load Range and Speed Rating in the case of heavy duty LT (light truck) sizes.

Speed Rating is based on the speed that the tire is designed to be driven at for extended periods of time. All tires in the in the U.S. are designed to maintain legal U.S. speed limits. The speed rating of tires must match the maximum driving speed of the vehicle.

Load Index is used on P metric and Euro Metric sized tires and denotes a tire's load-carrying capacity at a specified inflation pressure. The load index is represented by a number, the higher the Load Index Value the greater the load the tire can safely carry. Vehicle manufacturers recommend a maximum load capacity based on a recommended minimum load index.

Tire Class

TIRE CLASS

Tire Class reflects how the tire will be used. There are four major categories: All-Season, Max Performance, Summer-Only and Winter-Use.

All-Season tires are suitable for year-round driving in all weather conditions.

Summer-Only & Max Performance tires are specifically designed for high-performance driving. Tire compound, tread design and speed ratings all combine to hug the road and maintain grip. Summer tires by nature are not ideal for winter driving due to lack of siding to grip winter roads.

Winter-Use tires have tread compounds and patterns that are specially designed for grip on snowy or icy road surfaces. They are not suitable for year-round use. The rubber compound used will wear more quickly on dry, summer roads. It is recommended that winter tires are fitted as a complete set to avoid potential handling issues.

Tread Type

TREAD TYPE

Tread Type is an important consideration when choosing a tire. There are four main types: Passenger, Highway, All-Terrain and Mud-Terrain.

Passenger denotes a tread that is suitable for normal use, a good all-round tread for normal driving.

Highway is a tread type unique to SUV and truck tires. The tread is optimized for normal everyday driving on paved surfaces. These tires can be driven off pavement, but are not ideally suited for off road traction. Highway tread patterns deliver a quiet ride.

For light trucks and specialty vehicles, All-Terrain tread types provide better off-road traction than standard highway truck tires. There more aggressive tread tends to be less quiet on paved roads. All Terrain tires are suitable for everyday use.

Mud-Terrain treads are specifically designed with wider tread blocks and higher void ratios to gain traction in off-road conditions. Mud Terrain tires can generate higher noise levels and tend to carry lower mileage warranties than other tread designs.

UTQG

UTQG - Uniform Tire Quality Grade

UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) is made up of three values: treadwear, traction and temperature.

Treadwear is a relative numeric score, based on manufacturer tests, showing how well a tire can be expected to wear compared to other tires. A higher score means a tire could be expected to wear better.

Traction measures the tire's ability to stop a vehicle on wet roads. It doesn't reflect a tire's acceleration, cornering, or hydroplaning performance. Traction grades range from AA (highest) to C (lowest).

Temperature grades the tire's ability to withstand heat build-up, with A being the highest grade and C the lowest.

A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 to 115 mph
C - Between 85 to 100 mph
Treadwear: 400
Traction Asphalt - gForce
AA - Above 0.54
A - Above 0.47
B - Above 0.38
C - Less Than 0.38
Temperature
Grades:
A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 and 115 mph
C - Between 85 and 100 mph

Drive / Ride Performance Characteristics

All tires have the following six performance characteristics, divided into three sets of trade-offs. In most cases, a tire may perform excellently in one characteristic but only standard in the other.
Standard Ride Comfort & Standard Handling
Handling: Get stiff side wall for precise steering and cornering but settle for a firm ride with increased road noise.
Ride Comfort: Enjoy a quiet, smooth ride but lose some cornering ability.
Standard Treadwear & Standard Traction
Traction: Stop faster in wet conditions but expect a shorter tread life.
Treadwear: Get long, uniform wear across your tread pattern but expect less traction in wet conditions.
Standard Low Rolling Resistance & Standard High Speed Performance
High-Speed Performance: Get increased performance at higher speeds but sacrifice some fuel economy.
Low Rolling Resistance: Enjoy improved fuel efficiency but expect less high-speed cornering ability.
Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 96 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too loud and unusual wear Do not buy these tires if you value your sanity or hearing. You could lose both. These are the loudest tires that I have ever owned. Just couple that with the weirdest wear pattern. All four tires have high tread on each side if the center tread line. Car is in perfect alignment, and all wheels are balanced, and pressurized properly. Once you get in, the road growl is a deafening killer that makes you want to get out and walk. I went back to the place of purchase and they didn't even know what to say. They were just as disappointed as me. Needless to say, I am obviously not the only one with the road noise issue if you just read a little further down. BF Goodrich lost this race with these tires, now off to buy some earplugs. March 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great grip Replaced a set of competitor tires on my Scion TC after sliding on the ice and snow last year (and repairing a neighbor's mailbox in the process). The BFG's are great on dry pavement as well as the ice and snow. An unexpected bonus was they are quieter too. February 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Three's a charm!!! I daily drive a 1989 BMW M3. I have used 2 sets of the G-Force Sports and really like them. One set was All Season and the current set is summer tires, since they discontinued the All Season in my size. Wonderful grip, good ride and wear well. Relatively quiet. I have used Bridgestone and Michelin. I like the BF Goodrich better by far. January 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tires! I've been driving Stangs for over 20 years and these are by far the best tires I've bought for all weather driving. Great dry performance and no hydro planing like others that I've had, especially Goodyear Eagles which are terrible on wet, slick roads. Great tires for the money! January 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Switched from g-F Sport to g-F SS A/S I have gone through 3 sets of g-Force Sports on my supercharged '03 Tacoma S-Runner. G-Forces were great; very sticky and predictable. I just changed to g-Force SS A/S because I wanted a little longer tread life (400 vs 340) and better traction in winter. I was a little concerned that they might not stick as well as the summer tires (Sports). No worries though; these tires stick as well or better than the Sports. Both stick really well and the thing I like is that they are very predictable at the limit. They gradually break away and are easily corrected. March 2, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Excess wear on this set I had a prior set purchased in 2009 which did quite well and lasted over 30k miles. This set, purchased in summer 2011, lasted less than 11k miles and need to be replaced. I had the alignment checked and it needed almost no adjustment. Same car, same tire shop, same driver. I don't know what the difference is. I did notice when I bought the tires that I could tell a difference between the tread in the center and the outside. A slightly lighter grey on the outer rows of treads. Oddly, the front tires have a different manufacture date, and have lasted much longer than the rear tires. The tire store is also surprised. They are checking with bfgoodrich/michelin for credit on other tires. I will probably switch to something else. November 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by love the tire The tires are great! I put 4 275/40/17 on my trans am love them. Have 7000 miles now an look like new! very good traction in the sumer. I do recomend them to people that want a sticky tire. November 15, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Opinion I have more than 35K on these tires and I think they are fine. I put them on my BMW Z3 and it corners like it's on rails. I don't know why others would have issues with this tire. They are for sports cars and should have a good, tight suspension that's aligned. I've gotten good wear from them. A techie who works for me told me they are excellent tires, good for high speed, etc. He knows everything else, so I have to trust him (and my own experience) on these tires. Tires have to have good pressure, be balanced and rotated and the suspension has to be in good alignment. If not, you are not going to get good results. I am close to needing another set and am looking to replace with the same type. I really like how they drive and stick to the road like glue... October 8, 2011
