What are the main things?

There is no way to say exactly how long a tire will last. The useful life and mileage of tires depend on a combination of factors: tire design, driver habits, climate, road conditions and tire care.

Some basic points and useful tips:

1 - Remember the five-year term

After five or more years of use, the tires must be thoroughly inspected at least once a year by a specialist.

There is no way to say exactly how long a tire will last. The useful life and mileage of tires depend on a combination of factors: tire design, driver habits, climate, road conditions and tire care.

Some basic points and useful tips:

1 - Remember the five-year term

After five or more years of use, the tires must be thoroughly inspected at least once a year by a specialist.

2 - The maximum is ten years

If the tires have not been replaced 10 years after the date of manufacture, Michelin recommends that they be replaced with new ones. Even if they look usable and are not worn next to the tread wear indicator. This also applies to spare tires.

3 - Proper care prolongs the useful life of tires

If you take proper care of the air pressure, tread wear, tire adjustment, etc., you can extend their life. See our Useful Planning Tips

For original equipment: follow the car tire manufacturer's tire replacement recommendations.

How to check the date of manufacture

Look for the DOT code on the tire page.

Do I have to change them right away?

We recommend changing the tires if:

  • The tread is worn above the recommended tread depth levels
  • The page is corrupted
  • The tread has a hole larger than 6 mm in diameter
  • The board is damaged or deformed (the board is the edge of the tire that rests on the wheel)
  •  

1 - Check the tires regularly, making sure:

  • Uneven tread wear
  • Shallow protector
  • Sources of problems (stones, nails, etc.)
  • Damaged areas
  • Damaged valve caps
  •  

2 - Pay attention to how you "feel" the tires while driving.

  • Shaking while driving can be a sign of damage or excessive wear.
  • If you experience vibrations or other disturbances while driving, immediately reduce speed and drive with caution until you can safely turn off the road and stop to check your tires.
  • If there is a damaged tire, drop it and replace it with a spare. If you do not find any damage to the tires and cannot find the source of the vibration, take the vehicle to a tire dealer for a basic inspection.
     

3 - Seek a specialist

  • If you notice anything suspicious during the inspection, contact your tire dealer to check it.
  • To identify a specific problem

How to check your tires?

1 - Check the air pressure

  • This is done quickly and can prevent many problems
  • Do it once a month

See “Air Pressure: What You Need to Know? ” 

2 - Check tread wear by one of two methods:

  • With depth gauge for protectors
  • With tread wear indicators

See "How to check if there is enough tread left ."

3 - Check your tires for wear and damage

  • Check the puncture or bulge pages and tread to see if the tires wear evenly
  • Watch for any changes when maneuvering or steering
  •  

When should you check your tires?

  • Monthly
  • Before embarking on a long journey.
  •  

Next steps:

  • All visible perforations, cuts or deformations must be carefully checked by a specialist tire technician.
  • Only a tire specialist can tell you if a tire can be repaired or needs to be replaced.
