Tire information from Hagerty insurance

Seems like everyone is very interested in specifications and dates and speed rating for tires. Hagerty insurance Driving club sent me this Video so I thought I would share it. It is very interesting and very informative, Enjoy.

Good info. First I ever knew about putting a foam liner inside. Thinkin' that may be one of the answers to giving a slightly quieter/softer feeling ride to those "roller skate" tires with the minimum size sidewalls.

I had a garage years ago and we did tires but I never heard of the rubber thing inside either. None of the shops around here offer that. Might have to check that out.

Very interesting information, Auggie . . .

Rather surprising a company like Hagerty Insurance would be so casual on the significance of "life expectancy" of tires nowadays.

I still have the videos of the TV Show Documentary from about six years ago addressing Tire Manufacture Dates and the importance of avoiding tires older than six years.

Maybe in the last 6 years tire manufacturing has changed so much that dates aren't as important as they were back then when your video was made. Just guessing. The tires on my 4x4 i just replaced were factory originals and I wore the tread out to where the air was showing and that truck is a 2008 model so the tires were at least 11 years old or more depending on the date codes which I never checked. That truck never went over 120 MPH though so I never worried. My SSR tires are a whole different story.

The other thing is most folks now a days are putting about 20,000 miles a year on their daily driver so the tires are wore out in two to three years. They don't worry how old they are.

I got the impression the foam comes with the tire but only certain tires for specific applications. Wouldn't hurt to ask the tire dealer though.

Often wrong...... but never in doubt.
