2006 Ridgeline RTS in Steel Blue
You are correct, why even bother now - tire failure after 20 years is all on the owner of the vehicle.Is it just me or if you have these tires they should have been replaced by 7yo?

It might be ironic from an anecdotal perspective, but regulators don't base their decisions on sample sizes of one or two. It's not hard to imagine a scenario where this recall, even as late as it is, might be very important to someone. Even if it's not, don't we want more transparency and to be made aware of how companies might treat their customers in the event they sell a product that could potentially be very harmful.Anyone who is still running around on tires that old, has ironically proven them to be extremely long lasting, not defective .
What I read there is that your tires all fail on you before you replace them, and they all fail before 10 years age. In what ways do they fail? Blow outs, tread separation?Yes 20 plus year old tires I would consider dangerous.
I've never had any tires make it to half of that age.
