I have a set of Michelin 165-14 XZXs on my MGB. The tires have
been on the car about 8 1/2 years and 40k miles. They still
have plenty of tread on them and minimal evidence of dry rot
or cracking on the side walls. I have kept the car garaged
so exposure to sunlight (UV radiation) is limited to the
time that the car is parked outside while I am at work.
The DOT codes on the tires indicate that they were manufactured
So my question is, should I replace these tires for safety reasons
because of their age?
