"Excludes DOT-approved competition tires (e.g., Michelin ® Pilot® Sport Cup tires). Mileage warranties apply to tires that come as original equipment on model year 2011 and later vehicles. Some vehicles come from the vehicle manufacturer with “split fitments”—meaning different size tires on the front and rear axles. Because these tires cannot be rotated as recommended by Michelin, the mileage warranty on each rear tire will cover half the number of miles as the standard mileage warranty for that particular tire design.
ZP (Zero Pressure) tires have the same mileage warranty as the standard tire line they are part of, but not to exceed 30,000-miles. PAX® System tires are covered by a 36,000-mile warranty.
MICHELIN® Winter tires require documentation of the timing of the installation and removal of the tires each winter to maintain coverage under the limited warranty for tread wear. Winter months is defined as the period beginning on or after September 1 of a given year, and ending no later than April 30 of the following year."
30,000 refers to front tires only on staggered setups... so 15k. which is decently reasonable on an m3.
