CHECK YOUR CAR’S TYRES

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Fuzz Townshend’s Top Tips -

Tyres have a ser­vice life of roughly ten years. If they are older than this, bin them and buy a new set. I know that I keep harp­ing on about tyres, but they are, af­ter all, key to keep­ing your pre­cious hide on this side of the turf. At least once a year I en­counter a lovely old crock sport­ing tyres that date back to the days be­fore I passed my driv­ing test, which was Fri­day, Novem­ber 20, 1981, if you must know. There are plenty of great, pe­riod re­pro­duc­tion tyres on the mar­ket nowa­days, so there’s no longer any ex­cuse or need to flop about on in­ap­pro­pri­ately fat rub­ber.

Con­sider this to be the flip­side to your car’s free road tax.
