I drove 900 miles home on a set of 10 year old Toyo A/T's and while they looked weathered and cracked before hitting the road, a week after it was home and parked chunks began popping off the sidewalls and 1/8" cracks had split all over them.

    Rubber gets hard and brittle as it ages. It’s just a fact.

    Tires are constantly flexing and moving and bearing weight. The harder they are the closer they come to cracking and failing…under pressure and weight and at speed. They’ll blow up throw heavy hard debris moving at high speed somewhere.

    Further they don’t have as much friction.

    It’s just stupid to keep using those

            A taller tire is equivalent to taller gearing. The gear in your transmission/differential doesn't change how much a trailer weighs. You should do some reading then try again.

            Exactly what size tires are you planning to run on your Toyota Sienna Minivan anyways? Are you one of those idiots who thinks their FWD minivan looks good with 35s? It doesn't, FYI

            This is a sad attempt at projection.

            If your Toyota Sienna Minivan is genuinely so close to the brink of breakdown that a 5% change in tire size kills it, you have no business trusting it to get you anywhere even with the smaller tire.

            >you don't understand leverage!

            its not just the trailer dumbass. its the driver, its the fuel, its the entire van, its everything that is loaded into the van. and then yeah, its the trailer, and everything loaded into the trailer.

            if the tire is 7% bigger, then the curb weight, trailer weight, and a load inside the van adds up to like 800lbs extra load based solely on the gearing. youre being quite the pedantic c**t cuz I rounded to 1000.

            If someone is going to drive 3500 miles, including through mountains, then yeah, not having an extra 800lbs of load would be great, especially for 15 year old automatic transmissions which tend to overheat when put under large loads for extended periods of time

            No you fricking moron

            Bigger tire is the same as a taller (lower number) final drive.
            If I have a 3.5 and increase my tire size 20% the vehicle effectively acts as if it has a 2.8 diff.
            If my engine has 100 TORKS it puts 350 TORXS with the normal tires and 280 TORQCHS with the bigger tires.

            If it's going to die with a 3% taller ratio it's going to die without it too.

            Why are you planning to run a tire that you genuinely believe will instantly kill your transmission even WITHOUT the trailer?

            what are the consequences of
            my vehicle breaking down with all my belongings in it 2000 miles away from home
            vs
            my mostly empty vehicle breaking down a couple of miles from where i live and work.

            ill give you a hint: one is significantly more difficult to deal with than the other.

            >3%

            >7%
            if your 1st gear is a 4.5x ratio, your final is a 3.3 and you engine makes TOO HUNNED TERKS
            that's 2970ft-lb at the wheel
            With a 7% larger tire that's 2762

            it isnt 800ft-lb, it isn't enough to make any real difference in normal driving,
            you'll see a 0.1 second 0-60 increase, and a MPG decrease so small you won't be able to accurately measure it.

    I drove winter and summer tyres that were 15 years old for like 3 years.

    They came with the car and I didnt have money to change it.

    During the winter I couldn't brake, accelerate or turn without losing traction. During the summer I couldn't hit a water puddle without almost dying.

    Great experience overall and made me into a better driver. I never let anyone else drive the car because I knew they'd probably die in the first corner but towards the end of that car's life I was going 100km/h on small forest roads in the winter with zero accidents.

    On my new car I got some bald summer tyres that were 8 or 9 years old. Drove em and it was great for traction lmao but when I arrived at work one day one of em popped.

    In theory you can have 15 year old tyres and they'll still be fine as long as they were stored properly. But no one ever stores tyres properly, at least not that long.

    Oldest tyres I've run was an old volvo and I was in a pinch. Grabbed an old pair of wheels that were in the back of the barn and put em on. Drove em for 3-4 months. I think they were made 1980 something.

    Worked great.

    Meh, don't really care if it's a myth, I err to an unreal degree of caution, I check fluids, tire pressure, tread, rotor and pad eveness/thickness (respectively), keep the engine bay routinely clean (about once every three weeks, not a large commuter rn, specifically to spot leaks), and detail the interior and exterior.

    I take care of my car, and it's an old-ass honda suv. I don't prefer to use tires that are old, because I've personally had the experience of witnessing blow-outs (parents' car, they had crusty tires on, and BOOM). I don't want that, so to the best of my ability, I check my shit.

    Years, ehh, I'd probably go one or so over the recommended, but if I have the dough, I know that I'm investing by purchasing newer rubber. Versus the higher probability of less frickery from older rubber before it wears away.
