What To Consider When Buying Used Tyres

While second hand tyres are much cheaper than buying new, it's important to do a few checks of the tyres before committing to a purchase.

Here's what to look out for.

Obvious Signs Of Damage

Check for cuts, scrapes or punctures in tyre, particularly along the tread. Examine the tyre for any bulges in the side wall, signs of feathering, or dry rot.

Damage, even if it appears small or insignificant, can increase the chance of a blowout or failure down the road.

Tyre Age

It's common for unsuspecting buyers to accidentally purchase second hand tyres that are quite old.

Preferably, don't buy tyres that are more than 5 years old, and you should definitely avoid tyres that are more than 10 years old.

Even if they haven't been used, the rubber compounds in tyres deteriorate over time, making them more likely to fail. There's no legal age limit for tyres in Australia, but the 5/10 years rule is a good guideline.

How do you check the age before buying? Take a look at DOT code on the tyre sidewall, and enter the number into the tyre age calculator below to find out how old it is.

Tyre Size

It might seem obvious, but it pays to double check that the tyre you are purchasing has the exact same size as your existing tyres. If it doesn't, it won't fit properly.

Don't trust the seller to get the size right in their advertisement, double check the size yourself by taking a look at the sidewall. Use this guide to help you read the sizes.

Don't forget to double check the speed and load indexes too - they should match your existing tyres.

Remaining Tread

This is the one that few people forget - checking how much tread is left on the tyres. Remember that new tyres typically start with about 8mm of tread, and they legally need replacing once the tread reaches 1.5mm.

Bear in mind that the performance of the tyre (ie. traction) deteriorates as the tread disappears.

The stopping distance of a tyre with 8mm of tread is much shorter than a tyre with 3mm of tread. Use the tread wear indicators on the tyre to help gauge how much is left.
