Out of sight…so……out of mind……the spare tyre!
Very few cars will run on just one set of tyres for 4-5-years, but many will still have a 6-10 year old tyre in use or in the boot……as the all-too-often-forgotten spare tyre.
Next time your tyres are checked, don’t forget to get the spare inspected. Most tyre companies will recommend that spare tyres over 6-years old should only be used as a ‘get you home’ emergency measure and then changed at the earliest opportunity.
However, motorists should also be aware that many new cars may not have a spare tyre!
