No, this situation is excluded under this warranty as this should be covered under your motor vehicle insurance.
7. Where can I make a claim?
At any TYRES & MORE® store in South Africa.
8. How do I make a claim?
You bring your damaged tyre, the vehicle the tyre was fitted to and proof of identification and your ContiSure Warranty booklet, into the nearest TYRES & MORE® store. The dealer claims official will verify your claim based on the presentation of your ContiSure Warranty booklet, original sales invoice and tyre service record. Once it is verified, your tyre will be assessed.
9. How long is my claim likely to take?
Once the tyre has been assessed and the credit due to you has been calculated by the dealer, you can immediately purchase your replacement tyre. This should take no longer than 30 minutes. The fitting and labour time required should take the standard amount of time.
10. How can I make an enquiry about my warranty?
You can enter your invoice number into the www.tyresandmore.com portal here.
11. Are my current tyres also covered if I replace only 2 tyres?
No, only the Continental branded tyre(s) purchased from a TYRES & MORE® and recorded in your ContiSure Warranty booklet and original sales invoice, are warranted.
12. Can I claim for 1 tyre, twice?
No, once a claim has been granted that particular claim is now void. The tyre claimed for must be kept by the dealer for a monthly audit by CTSA staff. Thereafter, the tyre must be made un-serviceable and disposed of via the legislated scrap collection processor in the absence of legislation, by the TYRES & MORE® in an approved manner.
13. Do I get a ContiSure Warranty that I can keep on me?
No, you will receive a ContiSure Warranty booklet to keep in your vehicle. This booklet is very important and you must ensure that you keep it safe at all times.

Not for the cost of repairs, but if the puncture is deemed irreparable in the sole discretion of TYRES & MORE®, then the tyre would be warranted.
18. Are Continental branded tyres with the SSR (Self Supporting Run Flat) feature warranted?
Yes, the Continental SSR tyres were specifically designed to allow you to be able to drive on with a puncture. These tyres are often damaged in the run flat process and CTSA does not advise repairing them, therefore, they are covered.
19. I bought tyres from a TYRES & MORE® and no one mentioned ContiSure Warranty. Am I covered after I leave the store?
Yes. You will automatically be registered after you purchase your tyres, and the warranty conditions can be downloaded from www.tyresandmore.com or the ContiSure Warranty wording can be emailed to your email address. You need to keep it and your original sales invoice in your car and adhere to all the requirements. If necessary the ContiSure Warranty booklet can be collected from your nearest TYRES & MORE® store.
20. I bought more than one tyre on my original invoice and I have only made one claim. Does my ContiSure warranty cover on the other tyres lapse?
No, the cover only lapses on the tyre you have claimed, however, the replacement Continental branded tyre will also now be warranted under a new ContiSure Warranty. The original sales invoice for the replacement tyre must be attached to the ContiSure Warranty booklet.
21. Is TYRES & MORE® decision final or can I appeal his / her decision via a higher authority?
The dealer claims official (Store Manager) acts as the claims authority. If dissatisfied with the outcome the TiAuto Investments Compliance Officer has the power to make the final decision on behalf of CTSA.
22. Is the ContiSure Warranty transferable to a new owner when I sell my vehicle?
23. How is the remaining tread depth measured?
At the lowest point of the tyre. The TYRES & MORE® makes this assessment using a Tread Depth Gauge.

The Customer will also acknowledge that the terms and conditions of the warranty have been explained and that full details of the warranty are available on the website.
1.3 Warranted Event
The Customer may claim against this ContiSure Warranty when warranted item(s) are accidentally damaged and become irreparable as a result of a cut, impact break or puncture occurring on a public road within the borders of South African, Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia or Swaziland. The date of loss shall be the date on which the accidental damage occurs, and must fall within the Period of Warranty.
TYRES & MORE® shall credit the Customer for the unused tread value (as explained below) on behalf of CTSA.
1.5 Value Determination
The value warranted per warranted Item is calculated as follows when claiming:
Within 30 (thirty) days or 2,000 km (two thousand kilometres):
Should the Warranted event occur within 30 (thirty) days from inception of this ContiSure Warranty or within the first 2,000km (two thousand kilometres) of driving on the warranted item(s) after fitment date as specified on the original sales invoice, whichever comes first, the Customer will receive a credit towards up to the value of R2500 (Two Thousand Five Hundred Rand). The purchase of the same or similar new tyre from a TYRES & MORE®, regardless of the remaining tread on the warranted item(s).
After 30 (thirty) days or 2,000 km (two thousand kilometres):
For Warranted events occurring after 30 (thirty) days from inception of this ContiSure Warranty or after the first 2,000km (two thousand kilometres) of driving on the warranted item(s), whichever comes first, the value Warranted shall be calculated by firstly measuring the remaining tread of the damaged warranted item(s), and deducting from that the 1.6mm minimum Continental's recommended tread depth, up to the value of R2500 (Two Thousand Five Hundred Rand). Such figure represents the remaining tread. The remaining tread of the Warranted item will be expressed as a percentage of the original tread depth and thereafter multiplied by the original purchase price (after discounts) of the warranted item as recorded on the original sales invoice.The monetary value as determined using the above formula in the currency of country claim shall constitute the credit value which the Customer will be entitled to use towards the purchase of a new replacement Continental branded tyre.
Example: Calculation of the Credit Amount: in ZAR
Should you buy a tyre for R1000 with an original tread depth of 8.0mm, and the remaining tread on the tyre is 6mm, the Credit Amount will be R550.
= (6.0mm remaining tread – 1.6mm Legal Limit) / 8.0mm original tread x R1000 purchase price
= 4.4mm/8.0mm x R1000
= 55% x R1000
Fitment, balancing and wheel alignment is strongly recommended especially following an event during which a tyre had sustained damage. The cost of the fitting, balancing and any wheel alignment costs is for the customer's account.
1.6 Limitation of Benefits
1.6.1 The credit amount will not be paid in cash, but paid towards the purchase of a new replacement Continental branded tyre from a TYRES & MORE® store. The customer will be liable for the difference between the credit amount and replacement cost of the new tyre(s) plus any charges for fitment, balancing and alignment.
1.6.2 Only one claim per warranted item can be made.
1.7 Tread Depth Limit
The Tread Depth limit is Continental's 1.6 mm minimum tread depth standard, which is acknowledged in various forms of communication by Continental (Internet, technical data books, customer service publications, etc.). This standard has been adopted as a regulation by many of the world's national transportation authorities as it is the most widely accepted minimum tread depth standard at which tyres should be removed from service.
In respect of each and every event that gives rise to a claim, 1.0mm (one millimetre) of the tread will be deducted from the remaining tread and will act as excess. The excess will not apply for a new tyre in the first 30 (thirty) days or 2,000 km (two thousand kilometres) whichever comes first. The Charges for fitment, balancing and alignment of replacement item(s) remains the Customer's responsibility.
1.9 Period of Warranty
This ContiSure Warranty will be valid for 2 (two) years from date of purchase of the warranted item(s) as indicated on the original sales invoice.
The ContiSure Warranty will terminate on the earlier of:
• the tread of the warranted item(s) being worn to the legal tread limit of 1.0mm as measured at the time of a claim;

• the sale of the warranted item(s) or vehicle to which the tyre was fitted;
• the removal of the warranted item(s) from vehicle to which the items were originally fitted;
• a claim has been paid.
