Re: [DML] Tires too old?

Tom, when I first bought my car, It had BFG's all around and they had plenty
of meat on them including the small rubber pegs on the sides.  They looked
new and had no cracking or signs of wear of anykind.

Didn't occur to me that they were 11 and 14 years old until I had a
seperation on the freeway.  That's when I looked at the codes.  Needless to
say, they had to be replaced simply because of age.
