The spare on my van is a brand new Kleber and looks in perfect condition, not cracked or perished and never been left in the sunlight. But the date code shows it was made in 2000. There seems to be some range of opinion on the net over how long tyres last - some say 5 or 6 years, Michelin say 10 is ok. Any other views??
I'm willing to stump up some cash if necessary but it seems a real waste to scrap it unless I really should.

Look on teh Autoexpress web site. they have an article on there today about old tyers, in their test they had a 36% difference in braking difference between new and 10 year old tyres.
