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]

Tire Type
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: 500
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 & Excellent 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 & Excellent 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 Total transformation After two sets of oe tires on 2007 c6 corvette replaced with pilot a/s. Completely transformed car. Less road noise and increased grip on cool pavement. Got tired of the car, now love it all over again. September 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by greatest performer Audi S4 tire all weather yet! Three set's since 2005. Any troubles They replace no problem by full set. Now however I am told will not do so as manufacturing 235/40-18 has ceased, yet strangely enough for the S5 they produce 245/40-18 currently. Must one do a trade for a S5 Audi, to run the next size up still available? Any troubles, to then be told a year or so latter, NLA in the A/S Plus my size as phased out??? Really now!!!! What a Porsche next to get the tires so loved? August 9, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 Disappointing Tread Wear A set of four 235/45R17 tires was purchased and installed on my 2005 Acura in April 2010. This set of tires replaced a previous set of Michelin tires installed on the vehicle since new. At the time of installation the odometer read 106,234 kms. Today the odometer reads 171,234 kms. Winter tires are installed on my vehicle five months out of the year. As a result I estimate the first set of tires were driven 62,000 kms prior to replacement. Not great but certainly MUCH better than the 40,000 kms I estimate the Pilot Sport A/S Plus travelled! You may be thinking that low tire pressure or wheel alignment had a lot to do with the tires early demise. I don't believe that to be the case as tire pressure was checked frequently and the wheels aligned annually. Today, April 28, 2014, my vehicle is in the shop to receive a new set of four tires. I've been a Michelin fan since 1978 thus they will be Michelin tires - MXM4. I'm hopeful this model of tire will outperform the Pilot Sports. Michelin Pilot tires are installed on the vehicle for winter driving. I estimate the tires have 69,000 kms on them. What I find interesting is that this set of tire is only 60% worn. April 27, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Overrated Tire Purchased set of 4 Pilot Sport A/S Plus tires in fall 2010 for 2006 Mercedes SLK 280. Drove car in summer only. Originally told this was a 40,000 mile tire. 15,000 miles later must replace rear tires. Now told tire no longer in production. Is an adjustment from Michelin available? Is it ok to install different tire (Pilot Sport A/S 3) on rears without replacing front tires (A/S Plus)? April 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rollin' On Bought these tires for my sub compact Ford. I wanted a tire that would hold the road smoothly, wet or dry, without a lot of road noise. They stuck to the road like velcro. This tire was probably overkill for the car but I enjoyed driving it. April 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tire at a reasonable cost! Put these (runflat version) on my 2000 Corvette. Great handling and low noise. Much better than my previous tires. I read many reviews before making my purchase and am very happy with my decision. April 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 2007 Corvette - AS ZP When I purchased my Corvette in January 2013 the OEM wheels had a semi worn set of these tires mounted. The car felt good and I did like the tires, especially being a Bibendum fan. When I replaced the wheels I had these tires installed. New these tires are incredible! I was able to get just over 30K on the rears. I don't race my car it is just a driver I use for work. By 2014 the rears were done. The fronts were not even half way used up. January 2014 I purchased my current set of AS ZP. I just love these tires. When you can see the wear bars on these tires the car starts to feel twitchy when hitting wet tar snakes. Puddles create a pucker factor. I love these tires. As long as they are available and I can get 30K out of them, they will be on my car. March 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mostly excellent...mostly Installed on BMW 750, 2007 Always quite. Dry traction and handling is excellent. Limited use in the snow, but I am able to get around in limited snow and level terrain. It is possbile to have trouble assending a slight incline that is covered with snow less than 1" deep and no momentum. Also, had trouble in a mud field with a slight incline. Would buy them again for the mid-Atlantic states with limited snow fall. January 6, 2014
