McLean, Virginia--The US_based National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) has issued a set of guidelines to help consumers keep their tyres safe. The guidelines suggest that consumers, "Consider replacing [their] tires every six years, even if their treads are not worn out." and goes on to say, "Some research has indicated that tires deteriorate as they age and can experience tread separations and other failures, though no firm scientific data on this exists to date."
NADA is a member of the "Be Tire Smart - Play Your Part" national safety
campaign, sponsored by the Rubber Manufacturers Association.
