If you purchased a “Tire Protection Package”, “Service Central Road Hazard”, “King Royal Tire Service” or other vehicle service contract providing for road hazard protection from a California corporate location of Big O Tires, LLC on or after January 2, 2009, you could be part of a class action settlement..

The settlement relates to a lawsuit filed in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of San Diego, captioned Brian Jeffery Fratilla and Bob Franchino v. Big O Tires, LLC, Case Number 37-2013-00028542-CU-BT-CTL (the “Lawsuit”).  In the Lawsuit, the Plaintiff Class alleges that Big O’s sale of the TPP was unlawful and that Big O misleadingly charged members of the Plaintiff Class for benefits of the TPP to which they are already entitled.  Big O denies that it misled the Plaintiff Class or violated any law in any way.  The Lawsuit was filed on January 2, 2013 and the Court certified the Plaintiff Class on January 31, 2017.

The Plaintiff Class includes two Subclasses. Subclass A includes all citizens of California who, at any time after January 2, 2009, purchased a TPP from a California corporate Big O store and, during the same transaction, also purchased a tire installation package from Big O that included lifetime balancing. Subclass B includes all citizens of California who, at any time after January 2, 2009, purchased a TPP from a California corporate Big O store and, during the same transaction, did not also purchase a tire installation package from Big O that included lifetime balancing.
