- Do tyres age in the packet?
Always remember when I was a wee lad, my Dad had an mk2 escort called Huey Green. He had a set of tyres for it sitting covered in the shed for years. when he eventually put them on the car…they were almost indestructible lasted longer than the car did. They never seemed to wear (probably slicker than snot tho!)Posted 6 years ago100mphplusMember
Normal tyres will always degrade over time no matter how they are stored as the oils in them evaporate. Obviously darker and cooler atmospheres just delays the process.
You will first notice that they have a blueish tinge on them, (like oil on water), then they will start to crack.
If you’re really desperate you can buy some fairly obnoxious fluid that motor racing use to temporarily soften the tyres for a few more ‘laps’ 😉Posted 6 years ago
