NO WARRANTY POLICY
Valino Tires USA offers racing tires for sale only upon the conditions and the terms contained in this disclaimer of liability and indemnity. Due to many varied and different conditions which Valino Tires are exposed and because of the manner in which racing is conducted, Valino Tires USA. makes absolutely no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the fitness for a general or particular purpose or of merchantability in connection with any offer of sale of Valino Tires. "Valino Tires ARE SOLD AS IS." Race tires are not tested or labeled to meet FMVSS 109, 119, 139 or ECE36 Safety Standards. Therefore it is dangerous and illegal to sell race tires for use on public highways. Any person selling Valino Tires for highway use agrees to indemnity and reimburse Valino Tires USA. for all loss, damage, or liability Valino Tires USA. may suffer because of such sales. Not applicable where prohibited by law. Not following these warnings can cause SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.

Service Life For Race Tires: Old tires can fail in use, causing loss of vehicle control and personal injury. Environmental conditions like temperature extremes, exposure to sunlight, electric arc, solvents, automotive fluids, and atmospheric pollutants accelerate the aging process. Valino Tires USA strongly recommends that new (sticker) tires should be put in service within 2 years of date of purchase. Used (scuffed) tires have a shorter service life than new (sticker) tires. Poor storage and infrequent use accelerate the aging process.
DIRECTION OF ROTATION/MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS
ROTATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR TIRES WITH DIRECTIONAL ARROWS
All Valino tires having directional arrows must be mounted so that the tire travels in the direction of the arrow. Valino tires having directional arrows will have them on both sidewalls. Directional arrows may not be on a tire that can have both a left and/or right side application.
WARNING: TIRE MOUNTING IS DANGEROUS
Special Tire Mounting Instructions: Tire mounting should be done only by trained personnel using proper tools and procedures. Failure to follow safe mounting procedures could cause faulty positioning of the tire and cause the assembly to burst with explosive force sufficient to cause SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH. Always inspect tire for kinked beads or other possible damage that may have occurred in shipping or storage. Clean rim and lubricate beads with rubber lubricant. Always lock rim on mounting machine or place in safety cage. Use a clip on chuck, an in-line valve with a pressure gauge or adjustable regulator and remote inflation/deflation device. Have enough air hose to stay out of the trajectory. Stand back.
WARNING: VERIFY RIM SIZE
Verify Correct Wheel and Bead Flange: All tires are designed to be used on wheels that are manufactured to Tire and Rim Association (T&RA) specifications and tolerances. Some rims are non-standard or damaged and it is necessary to inspect the rim flange to assure proper fit. Consult your specific rim manufacturer to determine if your rim can be used in this application. Never attempt to install and inflate a tire of one bead diameter on a rim or wheel of a different bead diameter. Use of Hoosier Racing Tires on wheels with incorrect bead flanges or wheels that do not meet T&RA standards can cause the assembly to fail and burst with explosive force sufficient to cause SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH. Use a certified wheel rim disk tape to confirm wheel rim flange size.
WARNING: BEAD/RIM SIZE
When seating beads never exceed maximum bead seating pressure as molded in tire sidewall. Never exceed manufacturer's maximum inflation pressure. Always seat beads with wheel locked to mounting machine or placed in a safety cage. A damaged tire or wheel can fail during bead seating and burst with enough force sufficient to cause SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH. Always use a clip on chuck, an in-line valve with a pressure gauge or adjustable regulator and remote inflation/deflation device. Have enough air hose to stay out of the trajectory. Stand back. If the beads will not seat at the manufacturer's maximum bead seating pressure, STOP, deflate tire, return the tire to place of purchase.
