How old are the tyres on your car ?… Do you know ?… Do you really know ?
It seems obvious when you think about it but tyres are made of rubber, and rubber slowly perishes.
Tyres that you may think you are buying as “new” may not have been used, but that does not make them safe to use if they have been sitting on the shelf for years.
Well done Cheri for pointing this one out.

Oh, and the inference in the report (from 2008) is that British drivers are aware of this dating system… take it from me, it is not common knowledge !
Y’all take care now.
