    gunnabuild1:

    Insurance companies are starting to take a great deal of interest in the age of tyres lately.
    Any chance of rejecting a claim is a good one my cynical side suspects.

    Yep can imagine here in rural SA no vehicle inspection quite a few ute car etc have balding or substandard tyres that i would not be happy driving on Sad

    My mate was made to replace his 5 year old VW Golf diesel tyres at service and rego check time because that's what you're now required to do. Right.

    NSW says

    Condition of tyres • For vehicles with a GVM 4.5 tonnes or less, a tyre must have a tread pattern around its circumference that is at least 1.5mm deep across the entire surface which contacts the road. • For all other vehicles, a tyre must have a tread pattern around its circumference that is at least 1.5mm deep across at least 75% of the tyre surface that contacts the road. Tyres must not be used if there are any apparent defects that could make the vehicle unsafe (eg deep cuts, bulges, exposed cords or other signs of carcass failure).

    Bridgestone Australia says

    Check the age of your tyres.

    There is no set rule for at what the age tyres should be replaced. However, some car makers advise against using tyres over six years old. Over time heat, sunlight and ozone can affect the tyre compound. To check the age of your tyres, look at the Tyre Identification Number (TIN). The last four digits indicate the week and year the tyre was made, for example a tyre with TIN XXX4804 was manufactured in the 48th week of 2004. If in doubt, check with a tyre specialist at your nearest Bridgestone Select.
