Just called Goodyear Canada and tried to get a credit towards my factory tires. The front's are at 5/32nd and the rears are at 2/32nd with 16,000 miles (I bought the car used, not too sure if the tires were rotated properly) They offered to give me only two new tires at 50% off retail which will cost me $275 per tire.

The guy at Goodyear said that he has never heard a complaint about these tires before...

I guess it is better than nothing...

I called Goodyear today and they suggested I take my car to the dealer vice having a goodyear rep do it. I guess they received feedback on how fragile the paint is on our stock rims. I have only 4,300 miles so it might be easier to get mine done at the dealer. Although I have heard of some Goodyear dealers replacing rims they damaged,do not count on it.

It's becuse you have too many miles on the tires, and only two of them are fully worn (2/32 tread).

I got about a 75% credit on the retail price for having 2/32 tread on all four tires at 6600 miles.

The tires are prorated based on I believe a 20000 or 25000 mile (I forgot which) useful life. So your front tires should get a 20% proration based on a 20000 mile life, and the rears shouldn't get any proration at all since they'll make it to 20000 miles before being worn. That calculates to you getting only about a 10% proration on all 4 tires, yet they gave you a 25% proration on all tires (based on getting 2 tires @50% off).

You only have 2 tires that are at 2/32 tread at 16000 miles, and your other two tires won't be at 2/32 tread till about 20,000 miles or so. I think you got a more than fair credit IMO.
