- The basic life of a tyre is around 5 years, depending on how much it has been running on that road, after 5 years the tyres tend to get hard and lose their flexibility due to being exposed to the sunlight. The rigidness of the tyre can cause them to develop cracks on the corners of the tyres. Cracked tyres can result in constant leakage of air from the cracks or the tyres may even burst due to constant driving. So it is suggested to change the tyres instantly.
