Tire Age

Quote

Hello Everyone,

My 68 Sonett has BF Goodrich 155 TA Radials.

They were mfg is 2009, have a few thousand miles on them

and have lived in a garage their life. They appear like new, no

sidewall checking.

The tire manufacturers (various brands) recommend changing tires

at 6 to 10 years old. What do you think ?

Thanks, Mark

What state do you live in?

Here in Arizona the heat kills tires.

Also, do you do aggressive driving at high speeds?

Long road trips?

If your budget allows I would replace 11 year old tires

I've had high quality tires on my 69 Sonett since 2006 (drive less than 500 miles/year). They look new, too, and I've had no issues at all. They hold air just fine.  Unless you see dry rot I suggest you keep them.
