Tire Service Life
Mickey Thompson recommends that all passenger and light truck tires
(including full-size spare tires) that are beyond 10 years from their date of
manufacture be replaced with new tires. Tires that are 10 or more years old
should be replaced even if the tires appear to be undamaged and have not
reached their tread wear limits. In some cases, a vehicle manufacturer may
make a recommendation for tire replacement earlier than 10 years for their
products based upon their understanding of the specific vehicle characteristics
and application. If so, you should follow those vehicle manufacturer’s specific
recommendations for their vehicle.

belted and radial tires should not be mixed on the same vehicle.
