How Long Do Tires Really Last?

You want to get the most bang for your buck-but really, how long do tires last? It’s important to remember these tips to help you check the condition of your tires. For one, remember that tires age in the sunlight and air-so even when you’re not driving your vehicle, you’re tires are still depleting and aging due to exposure. It’s also important to recall how old your tires are. Older tires can get stiff sidewalls, which can have the potential to fail and crack if they aren’t replaced. If you’re not sure how old your tires are, simply check your tires by reading the DOT number on the sidewall of any of your tires. The last three to four numbers will show you the week and year that the tire was made. For example, if the last four digits read 4310, it means that your tire was made on the 43rd week of 2010. Additionally, check your tires regularly to make sure that there aren’t any signs of bulging or other irregularities that can cause problems. If you’re still not sure about the condition of your current tires, take them to us and we can give them a full assessment for you easily.
