Is The Age of a Tire Important ?

Youbetcha !..The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

(NHTSA) recommends that any Tire  SIX YEARS OLD or older

should be replaced ,  regardless of Tire depth. This means that tires

that look almost like new but are 6 years or older should be replaced

because the NHTSA determined that age, not tread depth, was a

major contributor in tire failures.
