Not where I am, as I'm around the city and as you can imagine, lots of construction, tire damages and replacements are very regular which is why I probably don't see anyone get near the expiry

I think that's more related to how you drive or maintain your tires more than anything else. I know people who have lived in new sub-divisions under big development and haven't had issues with tires. All their issues have been body and paint related.

Also dependent on where you live. In colder climates the tires are subject to heat and cold rotating every year and that can harden the rubber faster than average.

From what I noticed is that as long as you get the right tires for the season and drive on them enough and consistently, there's not much to worry about. What you do have to worry about is letting a vehicle sit for too long in extreme temperatures. People who go on vacation for months have this problem.

Just inflate your tires to the maximum PSI rating indicated on the sidewall. This will prevent them from developing flat spots and leave the parking brake disengaged. That's pretty much all there is to it. You can also put a tarp or plastic sheet on top of the concrete floor that you will be parking on to act as a moisture barrier.

Good tip. Since this isn't exactly a cheap car I think some members here might find it worth while to pay an automotive storage company to keep and maintain their car while away, there just isn't anything better unless you will be going on a short trip.

When you check the license plates of the test vehicle you see that they are running on 225 / 55R17 tyres
