I like the time expired note above. A fortnight ago I took my old Saab to the garage, because a front tyre had a scrubbed edge.
The folks there checked all the mechanicals and geometry in the front and declared all was well. However, three of my tyres were time expired, and only the odd one replaced earlier in the year was sound. On the ramp, it was clear to see that the outside edges of the treads were beginning to break up. No point in saving money on tyres. Buy the best and change when necessary. I was amazed at the outcome of this visit to the garage. It seems gentle driving doesn't save tyres from the knackers yard ! They get old just like us !
Anyone for replacement ?
