They should always quote Short DOT code dates.Be interesting to see if a corresponding ban on sales of tyres 'out of date' is proposed, bet its not!
Retailers should however 'step up' and start quoting the 'change by' date of any tyre sold to enable us to understand the stock age.
Looking at the cracking on those tyres shows the farcical build quality of these Camper/motorhome specific tyres. IMHO They're a load of bollocks designed to get more money out of fools.Seven year old tyre off my 2013 Pilote. Plenty of meat but not to be trusted ......can you see the cracked wall ?
Replacing immediately. Al
No it says that they must be dated from when they are retreaded which I take to mean remoulds?t says in the link that retread must be date stamped at the date of recutting..... WHY?
I take retreaded as recut.No it says that they must be dated from when they are retreaded which I take to mean remoulds?
any truck on 10 year old tyres would be on rims as they should have done 2,5 million miles by then
They are not goods vehicles subject to plating and testing as goods vehicle , they just stick them in the phgv category for excise licence .This could apply to heaver motorhomes as they are taxed as "Private HGV". They consider anything over 3.5T as HGV. On the other hand I think it is a sensible idea and would not like to be using older tires anywhere.
I take retreaded as recut.
Truck tyres have the ability to be recut so getting many more miles from the same tyre.
