NEW TIRES

Post by jerrymilan » Sun Sep 02, 2018 11:05 am



I have a 2013 F6B with less than 4,000 miles. How can I tell if my tires are still safe? I am worried that even though the mileage is low, the tires may be too old. Is this a valid worry?

Have a look at this article: How to tell the age of your tires

Anything beyond 5 years or so, I'd start thinking of replacing them.
