    See the manufacturing year of the tyre and you'll know their age. Look for any cracks or abnormality get the tyre pressure checked. There are certain tyres which have more Road noise as opposed to others. Tyres anyhow do wear out with age due to climate and ultraviolet rays. Won't be a bad idea to get them checked from a tyre expert though. Hope this helps. Cheers

    I just checked its November 2007 :/ its like 8 years. Actually i bought this car and yeh khari rahi thi sirf jab se li hai in 2007. Its Vitz 2004 and imagine the odo metre is just 36k. I have its auctions sheet and its verified and bought if from a friend jisne khud import kari thi but then moved to canada and yeh car sirf khari rahi hai only 25k chali hai in karachi. But i just checked that a tyre age is 6 years which means yeh tyre to khatam se bhi khatam hochuke hain

    Age of tyre varies on the composition type of the tyre but all western countries generally define that as six years at max as a standard some say it's 4 years aswell. Best will be to get inspect the tyres or if you can afford get a new set of tyres. Nothing is more precious than life so we risk it over tyres of all things.

    I prefer yokohama cause you get those made in Japan. With Dunlop it's hard to get made in Japan and in my experience after 20-30k mileage they start squeaking in summers on hard braking and turns. So my recommendation is yokohama.
