From Gav's post about tyre age and he has set down the challenge:

http://www.viczcar.c...ic,15635.0.html

https://www.google.c...0&bih=511&dpr=3

Should give you an idea.

See if you can beat 1987 ;)

Well I checked my oldest Zed tyre is 1986...so I am in the lead...then I checked the spare in my Sports 1981....so the bar has been raised.

Meh, on one of my Dato Roadsters are Goodrich textile radials, no cracks, still hold air, the reciept for them, in the file of documents for the car, talls me they were fitted in 1979
They're a very square section shaped tread.

As Gav was the initiator is should be his rules but I am thinking the rule should be it has to be the oldest Zed tyre. Cannot win unless it's a 1969 and the prize is knowing you won.

No rules just oldest tyre, and no prizes I'm afraid.

I went to check my Gold 240z, but can't find the date stamps on it. Hmmm wonder how old it is....

I must be reading mine wrong. Apparently the DOT (US Department Of Transport) standard didn't exist until 1967, so it stands to reason that there cannot be any DOT marked tyres older than 1967.

Luxury... I used to dream of timber spokes. We used to make our centres out of rolled up newspaper covered in cow dung and dried by a log fire...

On a closer look, the Chev spare ain't that old.
Just a crappy 30 year old sunderland retread
