As some of you may already know, I've been tire shopping. I'm still on my stock goodyears, which seem to holding up pretty well. I recently took them for a "spirted" drive, in which they did pretty well. Yesterday I stopping at a local DT to shop and ask a few questions. The manager came out to look at my tires, and asked me why I was looking for tires in the first place. (I mentioned age/upgrade). To be sure, they rolled the Cav into one of the bays and took a good look at the tires (even took a few off the rims) They were quite impressed by the shape of the tire, even after five and half years. (car is often in the shade when not driven) Anyways, he told me that they should be good for at least for a few years. He said that tires will last a while if you take care of them (and keep them out of the sun) What do you guys think? Usually, I hear the that a tire is good for about 5 of six years before you worry about it falling apart. Honestly, it kinda confuses me, as you do want to do the right thing, but at the same time, not waste your money either. So...your thoughts?
