Check your tyres for age as well!
You’ll get another few years from that buddy
Yep - year of manufacture is marked on the tyre.
My wife's is 8 years old and pass ne bosh.
UV. I’ve a customer who always parks her car on the drive a particular way around. Two tyres are in the sun for eight hours a day, two are permanently in the shade. Guess which two perish prematurely?
How do you make a duck into a soul singer??
Stick it in the microwave until it’s Bill Withers...
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone.
My rear tyres don't look great either. Both rears dated 2016.
EmilysMum's car had a couple of tyres like that .... It'd even been MOT'd with them
Mine was serviced and MOT'd at main dealers the day before I bought the car with the rears like that.
Admittedly 9 months later they look the same and no worse.
My XC90 had its first MOT on its 3rd anniversary last week, both rears had an advisory for perished/cracked tyres.
Checked and the tyres are 2017 , the year of the car build.
I park it nose into the garage door , so the fronts are less exposed to UV so I’d agree with Unclebenz . Bit irritating as the tyres are barely worn (14k miles, 6-7mm tread).
My 2008 tyres on the rear of the E class are in better condition than those , weird isn’t it
That’s because your are normally off being polished or caressed in some way
So you are saying if I used them .....
