Are these tyres dead?

Recommended Posts

Original front Corsas, edges are looking pretty worn out but thought i'd check with you folks before I can them for the Trofeo's waiting in the garage ;)

Ideally would like to get another track day out of them if I can... Thoughts?

There's a whole lot of number 11s left in them bad boys 

That would be an impressive feat on the front tyres!


Sorry Imran, you've got plent of life left on those, Trofeos will have to wait a bit longer.

Looks nearly down to the wear markers in one of those shots, I'd be changing them especially this time of year. It will spoil your track day completely if it rains and you go off because you wanted to get the last 200 track miles out of them.



I'll get around to it at some point.

They're new mate.  I've got tyres on my car dating back to 1996 and the local tyre shop says they're still still safe and legal. (been garaged and haven't seen UV).

I know cars standing can wreck tyres, so to move the car every now and then to avoid flat spots.  but is it uv that kills the tyres as one of mine has been garaged for a long time now in the dark, moved every so often, so hopefully been in the dark may of hopefully saved them... i do hope so, fingers crossed :)
