FAQs for Tire Age Calculator

What is a Tire Age Calculator?
A Tire Age Calculator is a tool used to determine the age of a tire based on its manufacturing date, typically encoded in the tire's DOT (Department of Transportation) code. It helps consumers assess the safety and condition of tires before purchasing or using them.
What is the max recommended age of tires?
There is a general consensus that most tires should be inspected, if not replaced, at about six years and should be absolutely be swapped out after 10 years, regardless of how much tread they have left. How do you know how old your tires are? There's a code on the sidewall that you can read about here.
What is the average age of a tire?
So, how long should tires last? The straightforward answer is “it depends.” A normal set of tires should last for 60,000 to 75,000 miles, or about four to five years. But there are a few key factors that will affect your tires' lifespan.
When should you replace tires?
To meet legal safety standards in the U.S., a tire's tread needs to be at least 2/32” deep. If the tires do not meet the 2/32” standard or are approaching not meeting it, you should replace your tires. When replacing tires, it's important to select the right tire size for your vehicle.
Does tire date matter?
Every tire has a birth date—the day it was manufactured—and an expiration date that is six years from that manufacture date. Most automobile manufacturers warn drivers to replace vehicle tires after six years. To wait any longer than that is a gamble with tire integrity and is risky for drivers.
