Continental Tires:
Free Replacement Period:
If an eligible Continental/General Tire brand passenger or light truck tire
becomes unserviceable from a condition other than those listed under
Section 3 during the first 12 months or first 2/32nds of an inch (1.6 mm)
of treadwear (whichever comes first) it will be replaced with a
comparable new Continental/General Tire brand tire FREE OF CHARGE,
including mounting and balancing. Owner pays all applicable taxes.

After the Free Replacement Period:
The tire (except temporary spare tire) may still be eligible for a pro rata
replacement for 72 months from date of original purchase until the tread
is worn down to the tread wear indicators (2/32nds of an inch or 1.6 mm
of tread remaining.) If an eligible tire becomes unserviceable under the
stipulations of this Limited Warranty and Adjustment policy it will be
replaced charging the owner a pro-rated amount. Owner pays all
applicable taxes (including F.E.T.in the USA), mounting and balancing
charges. The replacement tire price will be determined by multiplying
the percentage of the useable tread worn by the Dealers Selling Price
(excluding all applicable taxes) at the time of the adjustment. The
useable tread is the original tread down to the tread wear indicators
(2/32nds of an inch or I.6 mm of tread remaining.)
Quote:
WHAT IS NOT COVERED BY THIS LIMITED WARRANTY
THE FOLLOWING ARE NOT COVERED:
Road Hazard: Any tire with road hazard damage, which includes, but is
not limited to: cuts, snags, punctures, bruises, and impact breaks.
Ride/Vibration: Any ride/vibration complaint after the first 2/32nds
(I.6 mm) of an inch of treadwear or 12 months of service, whichever
comes first.
Repairs: If a tire is returned under complaint and the reason for the
tire’s disablement is in any way associated with a repair, or with the
situation that led to the repair, the manufacturer’s warranty is
invalidated.
Mileage: Tread wear out up to a predetermined mileage is not covered
under this policy.
Improper operation or maintenance: This includes, but is not limited
to, effects caused by:
1. Improper tire inflation and/or improper load/speed practices:
These practices can cause excessive operational temperatures and
stresses that exceed the tire’s capabilities.
2. Improper or insufficient tire rotation.
3. Improper vehicle alignment.
4. Damage due to:
• Rim irregularities or rim damage
• Snow chains
• Vehicle mechanical problems, including brake problems, and vehicle
wheel alignment
• Extreme temperature exposure
• Negligent and abusive driving such as tire spinning, or racing;
• Improper tire storage
• Automotive accident
• Chemical corrosion or fire
• Use contrary to the vehicles manufacturer’s tire recommendations
• Misuse or misapplication
Improper Mounting or Demounting
Alteration: such as, but not limited to, adding a white inlay on
blackwall, tread regrooving, tire truing or siping, or adding sealant
materials to the tire.
Weather checking/cracking: Not covered after 48 months from the
date of purchase.
Failure to observe safety and maintenance precautions set forth
in Section 6.
From the tire warranty manual included with every focus.

No road hazzard coverage comes with the tires.

Ended up getting the tire warranty from the dealer. While doing the paperwork upon delivery, finance guy offered it and I refused. He talked a little more, stating that I have the 18's and it would be a good piece of added insurance. I still refused. Then he said he was just gonna throw it in...FREE of charge. I could no longer argue, Thank You selling dealer.
Fast forward 3 months...wife is on the highway and the low pressure icon comes on the display...flat tire. Apparently she hit something in the road and the sidewall was punctured. To the dealer we go...wait one day...and a fresh new sneaker. Glad we have the coverage!!

I bought the TireCare warranty from Ford when I bought my car, but I did it more to cover the wheels than the tires. With these 18s and low profile tires and as much driving as I do, I think it's a wise choice. I hit something on the highway one day and killed one of the tires. The warranty replaced that tire for free. It would have been $318 if not for that. The warranty is now more than paid for. It's almost time for new tires already. At 27,000 miles, I've already surpassed the 20,000 warranty of the factory summer tires. I WON'T be buying those tires again. I found some 40,000 mile tires through Discount for half the price.

I ordered that tire for 185 shipped to my door.
