Ten Year Old Tyres Ban

Ten Year Old Tyres Ban

So, when looking at this recent change in the tyre law then I am a little bemused! In fact this is the first time that I have ever heard of any problems with the age of tyres reaching the ten years age. Consequently, the problem looks like it has derived from the truck tyre market. As far as I know this does not apply to car and van tyres.

Especially buses and the smaller mini bus tyre market. Of course the attached article gives all the hard details. I can only assume that some sort of accident was contributed by the fact that the vehicle was equipped with tyres older than the ten year mark. I really do not know!

Drivers and operators of commercial and public service vehicles are being reminded that tyres aged over ten years fitted to the front-steered axles and all single wheels of minibuses will be illegal from 1 February
