Date codes and "dry rot" (fake news) are a scam anons. None of my tires are newer than 2015 and I have never spontaneously combusted.

    I've never got my car tires to rot into failure, but I did replace a bulged dry-rotted bicycle tire recently. Good thing it failed in winter storage and not under my ass.

    Let me guess, spoiled food and mold are myths, too?

      I don't know about those, I'm not a moron who leaves food sitting out all the time.

      Anyways sorry you don't know about cars like I do, maybe someday you'll learn

    I use ancient tires sometimes. I don't take that vehicle when it rains, I check the tires reasonably frequently.

    A date code is real. Dry rot, is real. You can decide when you change your tires.

    2015?
    hah 2005 over here.

    Are you a fricking Iraqi or some shit? Change your tires. I don't want to see wires sticking out of your failing rubber. This is America, you fricking homosexual.

      If you have a car less than 69” wide you can use your tires to the point you can feel the difference.
      The Coupe had ‘05 and I think ‘08 and they were pretty damn hard and slick. The roadster had 2012’s with what was probably less than 1000 miles on them, but they went in the trash. They weren’t terrible, but they also weren’t exactly confidence-inspiring. Especially when cold.
      New rubber is just so much better.

      If you dont give a frick about grip or your life, why not run on the rim and have unlimited miles. Why pay the rubberjew?

      Rubber naturally hardens as it ages, which of course reduces mechanical grip with the road even with a tyre that is completely unused.

      I put a tyre from 1998 on my 4wd last year. It was unused. Looked 100% fine, no cracks or anything. I did about 700KM with it and the tyre delaminated with a bang. Smashed the mud guard when it happened. Still held air but I was driving on wires until I could pull over and change it.

      Rule of thumb is that a new Chinese tyre is going to be better than any old premium tyre that you can find. Tyres get dangerous when they are 10 to 15+ years old.

      The funny thing is, if you wear down new tyres very quick they actually produce more grip in the dry because there is more rubber in contact with the road (kind of like a slick)

      >rubber
      Tires aren't made from rubber anymore. Tires are made from synthetic polymers from petroleum byproducts now.

    They make durometer testing tools pretty cheap and for my motorcycles any tire over 70 is smack dab in the "sketch" range. Pretty sure my sport bike tires were in the 40-50 range while the old cruiser bias ply's were 80+. A hoot in the rain.

      Because you have no idea what you're talking about. A bare rim will grind off very quickly.

      You are importing us at this very minute.

      I recently replaced my tires with 2011 manufacture codes.
      They still had enough tread left to be legal (or at least legal enough for the inspector to ignore it), but the front tires had visible chunks that had fallen off throughout the tread pattern.
      Not too long after that I was on a freeway through a very heavy rainstorm. Personally I'm glad that I wasn't using those tires in weather like that.

      Chunking is sketch and I have personally had older tires (10 yr old or so) all seasons under steer pretty bad on me in the wet.

    Indeed. Ever visited a log cottage? Guess what: those logs will have cracks over time, yet it will stand solid and firm. Same applies to tires.

    The tyre pattern dissappears? Guess what. Formula drivers end up going speeds 200mph and they have slicks. TYPICAL ROAD SPEED IS 60. Threads are SCAM .

    I bought tires for my C1500 because the dry rotted ones went flat finally. I crashed the truck 2 weeks later. Doh.

      No it doesn't, if you brush it with used oil first. I change my oil every time I need to re-coat the underbody of the car.

    I went over 100mph on my car's original spare tire from 1999 a couple years ago. The trunk must have kept it relatively protective. It didn't have any dry rot.

      I still have my original spare from 1993. You can tell it's never been used because the paint where the lugnuts would be, is completely pristine. Just don't let the tires pop.
