Tire Ageing

Tires age even if they have not been used or have only been used occasionally. Cracking of the tread & sidewall rubber, sometimes accompanied by carcass deformation, is evidence of ageing. Old & aged Tires must be checked by a tire specialist to ascertain their suitability for further use. Tires fitted to vehicles such as caravans & boat trailers which are parked for long periods will tend to age & crack more quickly than those which are used & run frequently. In such circumstances it is important to jack the weight off the Tires & to cover them so that they are protected from direct light. Particular attention must be paid to spare Tires which may be old or aged in which case they should be used with caution & be replaced as soon as possible.
