Hey mr wilks, yeah one of the 225s has pretty much reached it's time to "go to a better place", and I will tip it if no one can make some use of it, even if it's a rope swing :)

The other 225 is not too bad, but it's still a 2013 tyre.

Whilst 2-3mm is legal I'd question the value in paying a fitter to put it on for just a few miles before having to pay for another and risk rim damage in the process, so i can see what Mr Wilks is getting at

£20 for a 5mm tyre is a bargain though

I agree with Mr Wilks, other than where I live you cannot take them to the tip and they are in effect a liability that a tyre depot would charge to take off your hands.
