It happens. I've done the same before, too. I know you've felt like I'm picking on you a couple times, but it's just because I don't always communicate as pleasantly as possible.

My tires are code 113, March 1993. The car was built in September.

Still has the original wheel weights and rides perfectly.

If I feel any vibration, it is corrected immediately.

None in 7500 miles.

I'll replace them when they are worn out, probably within the next year.

The same goes for the fan belts, and the timing belt.

I will probably do the timing belt and fan belts at 45k when the tires are worn enough to justify replacement.

My car is a unique situation, and I wouldn't dream or recommending the same thing to anyone.

Stored inside in a controlled environment makes all the difference in how a vehicle ages.

Most tire failures are due to underinflation.

regards
gary

My '97 Escort has less than 25,000 miles on it and still has the original tires on it and has been driven approximately 2500 miles in the past month and a half. The car is garage kept so it doesn't get the direct sun light though. The tires still show no signs of cracking or dry rot.

What? Um aren't you suppose to decrease traction at the rear and increase traction at the front in order to increase oversteering ability for a FF car?

That's exactly what thisisntjared said he does, in the bit you quoted.
