Used tires on
The age of a tire can be determined by its DOT number, a four-digit code that represents both the week and the year the product was manufactured. For instance, the code “DOT 3313” would be found on a tire produced on the 33rd week of 2013. Making sure the code is included on the side wall of every new product that rolls off the production line has been a requirement of the U.S. Department of Transportation since 2000. But while estimating the age of a tire is fairly easy, tracking down other critical facts is another story.
A DOT number may tell you when a given tire was made, but it will provide no insight into what that tire experienced during its life cycle. The code won't tell you anything about all the potholes and curbs it collided with week in and week out. Or how many times it may have been punctured, plugged and patched at a service shop. Unfortunately, it's impossible to know the extent of the wear and tear a tire endured over the years.
Automobile and tire manufacturers suggest replacing the tires on a vehicle every five to ten years. Such a wide gap is given because their condition is impacted by such a wide variety of factors outside of wear and tear. For instance, exposure to sunlight, heat, and salt as well as extreme weather conditions can cause the rubber to erode faster than usual. Even tires that are rarely used or unused entirely can be dangerous due to simply deteroriating over time – one bump from failing on the driver.
How much are used tires.
Tires range greatly in price. I just put new tires on my care and it was $600. It just depends on the type and quality of tires.
