Having to buy new summer tyres depends first and foremost on the condition of your previous model. The decisive factor is the number of miles driven. Although there is no definitive mileage to go off, up to 50,000 kilometres is the standard for summer tyres. In addition, individual driving style, air pressure and the storage of your tyres are essential factors that can contribute to the wear of your tyres. Take special care by: Driving with caution, keeping an eye on the right air pressure and keeping your tyres cool and dry; this way, you can improve your mileage.
Instead of the distance travelled in miles, the age in years is often given as a reference for the tyre conditions. An indication which, however, does not allow any general conclusions to be drawn. After all, not all motorists drive in the same way. Therefore, 50,000 kilometres can be reached after only five or ten years. Those who want to know the tyre production date, however, can do so with a glance at the flank. This is noted in the form of the DOT number. For example, the code number "0518", means that the tyres were produced in the 5th calendar week of 2018.
