    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...

    My rear tyres don't look great either. Both rears dated 2016.

    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).
