News Flash - Old Tires May Degrade

Ford is suggesting that car owners replace tires after 6 years of normal use, regardless of tread wear, due to concerns over degradation of the tire that may not be immediately visible.

While this may seem like common sense (even if one wants to squabble over the suggested replacement interval), apparently Ford is the first OEM in the US to suggest age-based replacement. Nice to see a manufacturer stepping-up with a safety suggestion before the regulators get involved.
