Are these perished

Hi folks
Never seen this before on any motor I’ve owned, but noticed these little cracks the other day, tyre is only 2 years old plenty of tread left, but are they on their way out, only worry as I like to drive when I can, but want to make sure tyres are safe, and would rather not take a chance. Thanks in advance

That's very common on MPSS.

They are certainly at the end of their life because of heat/sun damage drying them out

Michelin UK may be interested in that. My tyres start looking like that after approx 3yrs+ and then I change them.

Edit: didn’t know that was an MPSS ‘thing’

Wonder if a decent tyre dressing stops the rubber drying out and cracking.

I use dressing on mine all the time without fail, and they have still cracked; albeit after 3 years and not two. (Not a scientific test)

Had this problem on a Vauxhall I owned a few years ago. The compound in the rubber had hardened and cracked and eventually became a safety issue in the wet, the car did a 180 on a wet road, the back end was very twitchy due to the tyres not gripping as they should making for very unpredictable handling. My tyres had loads of tread left, but got them changed and problem was cured. Would recommend you do the same- cheaper than crashing your pride and joy!Image

Thanks mate for the info, have literally just received email back from Michelin, got to take the car to trye place to be inspected, then if no good they said they will compensate, will be far cheaper than replacing for sure

That’s awesome
Even if they give you some money towards a new pair, that’s a result

I’m doing some work for Michelin in FR at the moment and they are a good company to work for; very high standards internally.

Got them on my Bridgestone runcraps as well but to a lesser extent and only in the water channels.

Dont think this is too much of a concern, I hope......Image
