Ford to Ask NHTSA For Tire Age Advisory

(Akron/Tire Review) Ford Motor Co. plans to ask NHTSA to tell U.S. car owners to change their tires after six years of service – regardless of condition.

Ford and DaimlerChrysler already advise owners of their vehicles to discard tires after six years through their respective vehicle owner’s manuals.

Ford claims its testing and research shows that the effects of aging on tire reliability increase significantly after six years.
