?Absolute Calamity!?

Iíve just put my car through the Greek equivalent of the MOT.

I thought the only requisite was that the horn was working.

Apparently I need to replace all 4 tyres. The tread is fine on all of them but, apparently, there is a use by date on tyres whether they are worn or not.

Is this just a Greek thing?

No legal requirement here in the UK but they recommend changing them once they are ten years old even if they look ok.

sidewalls normally start to perish (crazing), or the tread crack..

No legal limit as above

Ah, OK. Sounds like new tyres needed.
