What are the basics?
There is no way to tell exactly how long a tyre lasts. The lifespan and mileage of a tyre depends on a combination of factors: its design, the driver’s habits, the climate, the road conditions and the care that's put into the tyres.
A few milestones and tips:
1- Keep five years in mind
2- Ten years is a maximum
3 – Proper care expands a tyre’s lifespan
How to check the manufacturing date
After five years or more in use, your tyres should be thoroughly inspected at least once per year by a professional.
If the tyres haven't been replaced 10 years after their date of manufacture, as a precaution, Michelin recommends replacing them with new tyres. Even if they appear to be in a usable condition and have not been worn down to the tread wear indicator. This applies to spare tyres as well.
If you take good care of your tyres' air pressure, tread wear, alignment and so on, you can increase their longevity.Check our Scheduled care tips
For original equipment: follow the vehicle manufacturer’s tyre replacement recommendations.
Look for the DOT number on your sidewall.
