Tyres are the source of connection between your vehicle and the road. No matter if you drive a car, bike, truck or a cycle; your tyre will tend to degrade with time. For people who are planning to buy second-hand tyres, it is important for them to understand the importance of tyre life.

Just like any other part of your vehicle, your tyres also depreciate over time.  Experts say that a tyre expires after 6 years of its manufacturing date. There are many factors because of which a tyre gets expired. These are:


  • Wear and tear

  • Outside temperature

  • Oxidation

  • Contact with water, heat and rough terrain

  • Speedy rotation of tyres

  • Tread separation


It doesn’t matter if a tyre is used or unused, it will expire when the time will come. This happens because of two reasons:

  1. The important factor that determines the life of a tyre is its tread life. Continuous rotation on the surface and harsh temperatures lead to tread separation.

  2. Another reason for the depreciation of tyres is oxidation. When a tyre is exposed to oxygen, just like any other rubber material, it hardens over time and eventually breaks down. Oxidation is a natural process, therefore, even if a tyre is not being used, it will expire eventually.


Most people are unaware of this fact and use their tyres beyond the limit. It is very dangerous to use your tyres after their expiration date. One should change their tyres after a period of six years. Many automobile companies are also taking the initiative to spread awareness to consumers. It is important for everyone to check their tyres regularly and change them when the time comes.
