Signs that you need to replace your tires

Things to know about the age of your tires
When to replace tires

A frequently asked question about tire maintenance is tire life.
How long will your tires last before they need to be replaced?
The answer depends on several factors, such as: B. your driving style, tire tread design, regional climate, road conditions and frequency of car use.
Another factor is you, the owner. Like the rest of the vehicle, you play a fundamental role in the care and maintenance of the tires on your wheels; They last longer the better you take care of them. You are also responsible for deciding when it is time to replace worn tires with new ones.

Tire Care to Extend Tire Life
Continental designs and manufactures its tires to provide thousands of miles of excellent service. Get the most out of your tires by being careful to avoid damage from abuse, which can shorten tire life.
The conditions your tires are exposed to in everyday use: tire pressure, load, speed, damage from road hazards, etc. are key to determining useful life. The same goes for changing your tires regularly and storing them
properly. However, because operating conditions vary greatly from car to car and driver to driver, it is impossible to make general predictions about tire life.
However, you can be proactive and increase the longevity of your tires with proper maintenance. To avoid buying spare tires ahead of time, here are some things to keep in mind: Check the tires for visible wear or damage; How many years will the tires last?
Continental is not aware of any technical data that supports the retirement of tires after a certain age.
However, the same principle applies to the tires on your vehicle as to any other part of your car: age matters.
Together with other representatives of the automotive and tire industry, Continental recommends that all tires (including spare tires) have the manufactured more than ten years ago should be taken out of service and replaced with new tires.
You should follow this advice even if:

The tread wear has not exceeded the legal minimum limit.
