NEW YORK (OCN) — Are the new pneumatic tires on your vehicle tired? Even though they appear new, they may be tired out from sitting on a retailers floor and stock room for years.
According to an ABC News Report, some retailers are selling tires that are new but were actually made up to twelve years ago.
So what can consumers do? Consumers need know the following before making a purchase.
The Tire Code or Tyre Code, provides information on the tire. The code, located on the sidewall of the tire, includes information such as the dimensions of the tire, and some of its key limitations, such as load bearing ability, and maximum speed and the week and year the tire was produced.
