Re: 11 year old tires
Take this for what its worth, but I would not drive around the block on 11 year old tires. I was in the car dealership service business for 35 years, and I've seen enough things to convince me that 6 years is the outside limit, even under the best of circumstances. Some people say that 5-ish years is a contrivance of the tire makers to sell more tires, but my experiences tell me differently. If it was just you and your car that suffered, I'd have no dog in the hunt, but someone elses old tire blowing could hurt my family as well if they happened to be near us when it went.
It is a rare man who can count his own blessings and not mistake them for personal achievements.
