How Old Are Your Tyres This New Year
Happy New Year!
Unlike babies, tyres are born with date codes stamped on their side. The reason for this, in part, is due to the fact tyres don't last forever. Rubber deteriorates, perishes and cracks over time. As a result, this can cause air to leak out over a short period of time or, if worst comes to worst, there is a chance that the tyre can explode. It's recommended that a tyre should be changed when it reaches 6 years of age, regardless of the tread depth.
How to check your tyres age - look for the DOT code. 4 numbers which refer to the week and year the tyre was made
If your tyre was made in 2014, the DOT code could be 2614. If you see --14 on the side of your tyre, it may be time to change them over. If it's older, you need to change these as soon as possible!!
Sheffield will happily check your tyres and advise on the best solution for you.
