Michelin Tips and Information
1- Keep five years in mind: After five years or more in use, your tires should be thoroughly inspected at least once per year by a professional.
2- Ten years is a maximum: If the tires haven’t been replaced 10 years after their date of manufacture, as a precaution, Michelin recommends replacing them with new tires. Even if they appear to be in usable condition and have not worn down to the tread wear indicator. This applies to spare tires as well.
3- Proper care expands a tire’s lifespan: You can increase your tire’s longevity by maintaining the correct air pressure, performing regular tire rotations and vehicle maintenance.
For original equipment: follow the vehicle manufacturer’s tire replacement recommendations.
How to check the manufacturing date: Look for the DOT number on your sidewall.
