Tyre Service Life  
The life of your tyres is dependent on many factors, including driving habits, road  
conditions, vehicle loading, inflation pressure, maintenance history, speed, and  
environmental conditions (even when the tyres are not in use).  
In addition to regular inspections and inflation pressure maintenance, it is  
recommended that you have annual inspections performed once the tyres reach five  
years old. All tyres, including the spare*, should be removed from service after 10  
years from the date of manufacture, regardless of their condition or state of wear.
