How old is too old?

DOT code 0309, third week of 2009 :cry: time for the bin.... only used in winter and stored inside, starting to get vibration.

think I'll put the supersports back on ... it is almost March :?
Sold the Boxster, now I have a Z4 M Roadster and a 911 Carrera S

That's pushing it a bit, I am guessing you don't do many miles :o

I used to do 24 to 30k miles a year before I retired, I also had 4 vehicles, now I’m retired I’m down to three.vehicles and about 6k miles, my tire shop thinks they are ok but I don’t like the idea of having one come apart on my 911 at high speed. It would be messy.
