I called my driver this morning & asked, "how many years does a tyre stay before it expires"?

He looked at me like an alien from Mars, an expression that seemed to ask in awe, "does a tyre ever expire"?
Every tyre has an expiry date after which it is supposed to be replaced , lest it risks a blow-out!

The life span of a tyre from the date of manufacture is four years.

Now, how do you know the date a tyre was manufactured?

It is written on the tyre as four digits!
The first two digits represent the week, while the last two is the year of manufacture.

Please note that the four digits stand alone, not added to any alphabet. Some manufacturers place the asterics sign (*) before and after the four digits , while others simply encycle it.
