We're told to replace the front tire at a certain age no matter how good they may look, I'm not sure what the age is but would like to know

Would really like to know what kind of vehicle this is? As far as tire age, some tires might need changing at 7 yrs. I have run them until they were 11 yrs. but was more concerned about the appearance of the side-walls, ie, amount of weather checking.

I just replaced my tires at the eight year mark. My Bridgestones looked fine, but when I have my family with me I don't believe in taking chances. Plus they gave me $100 on each of my tires on trade in. Now I have a nice set of Yokohama's.

Vast majority of blowouts are caused by under-inflation, not age. With the intentional lack of info, what's the point of this post?

We had a steering tire blow out on one of the F550's in our fleet, it was a 1.5 year old Goodyear.

It was, and always had been, properly inflated with no visible defect or damage.

It just happens sometimes, not often, but it does.

Blow outs are very rare. What we're seeing on the internet is way more than reality. Check inflation before any trip.

Is this damage from a wreck itself or shrapnel from the tire? I have a friend with an old trailer that suffered a blowout. The explosion and tire parts broke the wheel well and damaged the inside of the trailer. On a Class C, a steering tire probably wouldn't have the same damage due to being in a metal fender area.
