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.

5. Watch for your rebate check in the mail.

Road Hazard Warranty

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

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.

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]

Speed Rating
Load Index
Load Range


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 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.
Everday Use
All Season



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 - 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: 820
Traction Asphalt - gForce
AA - Above 0.54
A - Above 0.47
B - Above 0.38
C - Less Than 0.38
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 5 out of 5 by BEST RIDE EVER!! These 4 tires are the best Michelins I have had on my vehicle. This is the third set of Michelins, the other two were Hydro Edge, which were excellent as well but did not give the nice ride like these Defenders. The other wonderful difference in these Defender tires is that my minivan handles like it has never handled before in the 22 years I have owned it, since it was brand new. I hope Michelin continues to make the Defender. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tires I bought these tires after the original tires wore out after 36,000 miles. What a difference these tires make in the way the car rides and handles. They are quite and run smoothly unlike the OEM tires that came with the Jeep Patriot. I feel like I have a new car. Winter is coming (to Durango, CO) and I am looking forward to seeing how they handle the snow. November 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the premium. I bought these tires because Consumer Reports rated them so highly. I am not dissappointed. Better ride, control and braking. Much safer than the stock tires my car came with. October 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by now I am a Michelin Man (tho thinner than the original) This is my second consecutive set of Michelin tires....they handle perfectly, are durable beyond belief, and make very little road noise....all my vehicles will have them within 2 more years (5 vehicles in all)...they are rock solid tires for which I will gladly pay more for, rather then to drive cheaper lower quality tires...bravo Michelin, and thanks. October 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Changed everything I have a 2006 Buick Rendezvous. I bought this vehicle mainly to transport my elderly parents. I never liked it...till i put a set of Defenders on it. Trust me, those tires changed everything. It drives like a dream and I now love it. I have read road noise complaints about these tires. It must depend on the vehicle, but in my case, road noise is much lower than with previous tires. Don't skimp on tires.What is between your vehicle and the road? Today I bought two for the front of my S10 without blinking. I am not a plant. I highly recommend these tires. October 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelin Defender Tires is truly a tire ahievement I have always been a believer in Michelin Tires for many reasons including reliability,ride,and handling.! I was happy when Michelin launched the Defender Series.My 1998 Camry XLE rides like a new car, and handles magnificently on straight roads, and curves. It is almost like driving on a magic carpet. Michelin Defender tires stick to the road on rainy and snow filled days.The Defender is also a 90,000 mile tire., and quiet. I also found that the tire pressure stays pretty constant without much deviation. Thanks Michelin for producing the Defender Tires Series. October 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelin Defender This tire is exactly what it claims to be. .A very quiet and smooth riding tire with excellent traction. I normally put about 50 miles a day on my car, and I could immediately tell what a positive difference in the way my vehicle handles. A pricey tire, however, well worth it. I would recommend this tire to anyone. October 2, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Did not last 90k miles Purchased the 90k tires for a 2007 Honda Odyssey van. Rotated tires ever oil change or between 3k and 4k. Also, had alignment done as needed. Only got about 64k miles out of tires. Dealer told me it would do know good to prorate tires because the warranty would only have 26K left and I would also have to pay for mount, balance, etc. per Michelin I paid full price to not pay for the mount, balance, etc. and have the full warranty. We purchased the same tires again as they have lasted longer than any other tire we have tried. On another note, I purchased the Harmony 80k tire for my Honda Accord and had 87k when I purchased new Defender's. October 2, 2015
