Automakers, tire companies and rubber manufacturers have different

 views on how long a tire should be on the road.

Some car manufacturers believe that regardless of tread age, we should replace tires six years after their production date. On the other hand, some tire manufacturers limit the life of a tire to up to 10 years, provided that someone inspect annually it after the fifth year.

Perhaps the best advice is offered by some rubber manufacturers, who say that given the variety of variables that can significantly reduce the life of a tire, it is impossible to arrive at an exact expiration date.

Heat: Research shows that warmer climates cause tires to age more quickly. Environmental conditions such as coastal climates and exposure to sunlight can accelerate the aging process of a tire.

Storage: This applies to tires stored in a garage or store without being used. Tires that have not been installed (such as those from your tire shop or garage) age much more slowly than tires that have been used, yet they do age in age.

Spare tire: Even if the tire is never used, once it is filled with air and mounted to the wheel, it is considered "in service" and continues to age over time

Conditions of use: The way tires are handled also affects their lifespan, as low air pressure causes tires to wear out early. Other factors, such as reducing road side impact or friction, repairing punctures, little or daily use, and driving time each day, contribute to fast or slow tire wear.

How to increase tire life

Proper maintenance is the key to ensuring a long tire life

Maintain proper tire pressure

Change tire positions and adjust their tires regularly

Park the car in a garage or covered parking lot, or use tire covers to delay the appearance of cracks

 Use small amounts of tire cleaners and abrasives that strip the tires of antioxidants and ozone protection

Avoid hitting the sides of the road or scratching them when parking

Avoid excessive acceleration, hard braking and sharp turns while driving

Adhere to tire weight limits

Do not buy used tires because of the difficulty of knowing their maintenance or driving conditions

Verify the date the tire was manufactured - lack of use does not mean that the tire is new, or that it has not exceeded the warranty period.Drive the car regularly to activate the tires' anti-aging properties

Good quality tires have a longer life

A good set of tires provides you with high-quality features such as stability, superior traction and braking performance. Most importantly, regardless of your driving style, they are likely to last much longer than cheap tires that may have half the lifespan of good quality tires, while not providing the driving and safety features you deserve.
