DETROIT – Michelin USA and Continental Tire North America Inc. have become the latest manufacturers to issue technical bulletins to dealers calling for the replacement of all tires 10 years or older, according to the Detroit News. Some automakers — including Ford Motor Co. and DaimlerChrysler AG — advise owners that tires be replaced after six years.Additionally, the Rubber Manufacturers Association and many tire companies are working with federal regulators to develop a test to monitor tire age and degradation. The report specified that there is currently no federal regulation stipulating when a tire is no longer serviceable due to age.
