    I would think twice driving a car with tires older than 5 years old even if the tires were just driven a few thousand kilometers. That few thousands you spend for a new set of tires might be the best insurance policy you bought. A blown tire due to its age might just be your death sentence. You’d rather be alive than dead.

    Most people would spend on other things for their cars but cheap out on tires. They forget that the only things that keep your car running on the road are the tires.

    Paul Walker and his friend died when the Porsche GT they drove rammed into a tree. The cause of the accident was that the tires were old and it blew out on them causing the car to lose control.

    Are all tires the same whether it is pirelli, michelin or low cost tires like arivo, sailun..... the life of the rubber is 5yrs?

    Check thread wear ratings. Those with 400 or more would be good for around 50k km or a bit more but 60k km will be pushing it.

    If lesser than 400, check tire degradation yearly or every 10k km. It depends on road conditions and how you drive. More aggressive acceleration and braking will surely shorten the life of your tires. The stock Bridgestone HL 400 on my FXT had a 300 thread wear rating and I had them replaced at 39k km.

    For those with 200 or less thread wear rating, they would be good for just 20k km. They are very grippy tires though but they wouldn’t last 2 years. I tried the Kumho KU36 XS before with a thread wear rating of 180, they were almost gone by 20k km.

    Thanks for this. Learn something new everyday. I typically base tyre condition on the thread wear indicator but, I make it a point not to push it to it’s limit especially if I foresee it nearing replacement approaching the wet season or abnormal wear even with some thread depth left. You can actually sell those tyres to rethreaders as the side walls will probably still be acceptable.

    are they to be considered brand new from the date they were retreaded?
    Truck / bus tires sometimes have markings on the side "regroovable"

    I think that MVIS should be technical and updated to the latest tech and what is applicable to our country using local data.. they focus on tire age what about the thread depth? Applicability of tires? HT / AT or off road

The reason I asked is, you can do as much retreading on the tyres as long as it is still 5years or less so, PUVs who do as much as 30k a year would typically wear down the tyres in 2 years & can do a retread for 3 more years if the sidewalls structural integrity is still OK. Practical opinion only.
    makapit kasi siguro sya bro na tires? achilles 122 yata ang model IIRC
    btw real 40% used sya bro ha, if you look at it mukhang makapal pa talaga and IMO 60% away from tread wear indicator.
    naalala ko kasi dati yung yokohama ko dati, akala ko 80% pa yun natira yun pala nasa 80% used na (baliktad) LOL

    Young Achilles 122 at 2233, medyo mataas ata thread wear rating nito (400 or better). Yung grippier 123S, nasa 200 lang ata so di ito pangmatagalan.

    I recently replaced my car tires with a different brand "turkish" origin and was surprised to see it is manufactured 2019 but it is already installed. Are there lots of 2019 stocks of tires? because as we know we encountered many lockdowns last year.

    Haha I remember using Advan Neovas sa WRX! Bilis maubos. Two or three years lang ata ubos ko na, and I drove a paltry 5,000 to 6,000 kms a year.

    yun tires na may rots na, less than 5 year old kahit makapal pa kailangan ng palitan
    madalas yan sa mga walang garage, tapos maghapon may direct sunlight
    pansinin nyo yung bitak bitak, not caused by driving/using it pero dahil sa natuyo na yung rubber
