Need to know if use 2 old tires that are 1-2yrs old is safe to use for track


Recommended Posts

I got these pair of Sumitomo HTR ZII that are remnants of my previous car thats been sitting in my storage unit for 1-2 years. These tires happen to be the same size of my tires on my legacy. They have been wrapped in Saran Wrap or Cellophane wrapped really tightly and then stored in a 42 gallon trash bag and stored in dark place. There is really good treadlife on these tires still. I was wondering if it is safe to use on the track. Also I am planing on buying 2 new tires of the exact same brand and model. What should I do?


Please help me out.

You are aware of the fact that tires should have the same rolling diameter (front and rear, left and right), to avoid damage to your differentials. There is a permissible difference, use this as a guideline. You may be able to do what you plan on doing, provided you ask a shop to wear down your new tires to match the used ones' rolling diameter.
