    Tyres. How old is too old?

    At C&C on the weekend I wad looking at a Porsche with some fat arse tyres. While I was trying to see what size they were I also noticed tje tyre manufacture stamp of 0807.
    Thats like Feb 2007.

    So how old is too old?
    When do they become rock hard plastic that would be outhandled by a set of new bobjane all rounders?

          On a Porsche being punted around a racetrack 10-11 year old tyres will be shithouse.

          On a Porsche being cautiously driven from home, to Cars & Coffee, then back home again, I reckon they'll be fine.

                Assume no laws around it?
                As long as it has enough tread depth the law don't care?

                  I've stuck by this rule. I'm sure the young punters at the tyre shop have had fun smoking up my old 80% tread tyres though

                    Yeah, I wouldn't want to know about 10 year old tyres... Also depends a lot on the life they've had - if it's been 10 years sitting in the sun, or extended periods of sitting flat, fuck that noise.

"The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

                      Going by looks, they are road style semi slicks with 90% tread.
                      As someone mentioned it looks like a weekend car that gets driven to coffee places only, but its a mean looking car...

                        Just wop some Octopus Grip on if worried.

                        I replaced the 8 year old tyres on my old cruiser with fresh rubber. Partly because of age, partly because they were too big for the rim. Fucktards at the tyre shop sold a nonna in her mid 80s 185/70/13s cause it's what they had on the shelf on a car that came out with 170R13s on a 5" rim. The thing looked like a dune buggy and there's no way it would have been easy for her to drive. /CSH

                            My moke had the original 1981 tyres on it not that long ago, maybe 5 years ago.
                            I replaced only because they had some age cracks starting to appear.
                            probs would have been good for another 30 years tho.
